Notice anything different with Google today? No? Neither did we. As announced back in January, Google co-founder Larry Page re-assumed his role as CEO of the Internet search giant today. The company’s former CEO, Eric Schmidt, will move to the position of Executive Chairman. “We’ve been talking about how best to simplify our management structure and speed up decision making for a long time,” said Schmidt during the company’s Q4 earnings call back in January. “By clarifying our individual roles we’ll create clearer responsibility and accountability at the top of the company. In my clear opinion, Larry is ready to lead and I’m excited about working with both him and Sergey for a long time to come.” Page briefly held the position of CEO in 2001 before turning the reins over to the more seasoned Schmidt.

Looks like what we reported turned out to be true — social networking sharing (sending information to Facebook and Twitter as well as app organization). Apple’s iTunes 9 is now officially official and there’s some great features in here. Application organization for iPhone/iPod touch apps, home sharing which will share your entire iTunes content on up to five machines, support for iTunes LP (referred to as project Cocktail in the past) and much more. It’s available now.
