The rumor actually started with this little update from Robert Scoble in which he wrote he was hearing the possibility of Rubin leaving Google to join a startup called Cloud Car. Well, rumor squashed but do notice how Rubin preferred to reply to Scoble’s Google+ post via Twitter rather than just commenting on his post itself. Probably he knows Google+ doesn’t have much traction, yet, and it would be best to douse flames on Twitter once and for all.
That’s it from the Googleplex it seems. It’s time to go back preparing for tonight’s announcements from Apple at its WWDC event.
