Andy Rubin, the creator of Android has squashed rumors that he will be leaving Google. The rumor of Andy leaving Google was spread by ex-Microsoft strategist Robert Scoble, who currently works with Rackspace.
Scoble, who Phandroid calls "current spreader of dirty Internet lies", posted on his Google+ page that "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/"
Andy not only crushed this rumor but also gave us more exciting numbers about Android's increasing dominance.
In response to the rumor Andy posted on his Google+ page:
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!
Andy not only crushed Scoble's rumor but also gave us more impressive figure about the Android's increasing dominance. Andy posted on his Twitter page:
No plans to leave Google. Oh, and just for meme completeness -- there are over 900,000 android devices activated each day :-) @Scobleizer
