Trolldroid: Robert Scoble says Andy Rubin leaving Android, U mad bro?

How to keep Android fans busy: start a rumor on Google+ about Andy Rubin leaving Google for a startup. That’s exactly what happened yesterday, went Robert Scoble posted this:

Today I heard that the head of Android, +Andy Rubin, will soon leave Google and head to a new startup called http://www.cloudcar.com/

Now, that rumor has two purposes: one, it might be true, in which case I start thinking about what that means for Android. I certainly will be looking for those signs when I attend the Google IO conference.

Universe imploding! Worldwide doom approaching! Wait… just kidding. Andy Rubin then posted:

How a rumor gets factualized: Cloudcar are a group of friends who I give free office space to in my incubator in Los Altos.  Revel Touch (Mar Hershenson’s company: www.reveltouch.com) is another cool company that shares this space.  I’m not joining either one and I don’t have any plans to leave Google.  See you on the 27th!

And so, if you happen to see the former post on Google+, be sure to take into consideration the latter. The more you know…
