» Woodside moves to Dropbox

The New York Times:

Dennis Woodside, the chief executive of Motorola, owned by Google, is leaving to join Dropbox, which competes with Google in cloud storage.

The Valley, including Apple, seems to believe that Woodside is the bee’s knees. I’m not sure what kind of feather in your cap it is to have negotiated the $12.5 billion Motorola deal for Google and then have run it at continued losses for almost two years before it was sold for $2.9 billion. I’m sure I’m missing some magic, though.
