It's never a good idea to do the same thing for so long. These people have many talents and ideas they need to explore during their careers.

Android is solid. It be just fine without him.

Well actually for me he left the company because he realized that Android is useless, he knows that Android cannot beat Apple.

He's got enough money. So now he's "leaving". He can pursue his hobby now or settle for job to be officially "of the street" and live the good life of the happy few.

android has been doomed. good move. Andy knew it's future, and that Android already has reached it's limitations. Of course I'm not saying it's "limited" its just that android has already reached his potentials. It aint going anywhere soon, because only 20% of android users were using Kitkat.

the only way of using the latest version of its operating system... is too pretty much buy a new flagship every year which no one can do it.

android is doomed.
