Alphabet!
Well, it's about time - demonstrates the size and versatility of the Company. Will make judging a "bottom line" for each business easier, and recruiting people into specific areas. Downside is the competition and popularity contest that will now be formally codified.

Can Facebook be far behind?

Re: Alphabet!
I dunno - there is a LOT of weight in the Google name and this Alphabet will diminish that. Google as a "moonshot" type company will become smaller and the other companies will all have different names, diluting the Google brand. 

It will interesting to see how this all plays out. Either Alphabet will replace Google's place in the tech world as a leader or it will be a disaster. Should be fun to watch either way!

Re: Alphabet!
Well, Alphabet comes before Amazon in the alphabet....that's cool

I'm thinking about GE -- how they grew, and expanded. 

Anyway, Wall St likes it - and thinks it's overdue.

will it impact product?
