More on Google's shakeup (part deux): the WSJ reports Jeff Huber will move to Google X, which is responsible for Glass, self-driving cars, and other cutting-edge projects. Search chief Alan Eustace will take control of Maps, and ad chief Susan Wojcicki will assume responsibility for commerce. There's a pattern to the moves of the last 2 days: Google (GOOG) is putting complementary products - Android and Chrome OS, Maps and search, ads and commerce - under common leadership, apparently with the goal of fostering greater integration. Apple recently did something similar.
