Over at the headquarters of AliveCor, a startup based in Google’s
hometown of Mountain View, they, too, were surprised by the
announcement, CEO Vic Gundotra said in a phone interview on
Thursday. Gundotra is a former Googler, widely known as the
executive behind the Google+ social network. […]
The fact that a huge tech giant is entering their corner of
health-tech validates AliveCor’s approach, Gundotra said. […]
“Ours is $99, theirs is $399, our sales popped yesterday, big
time,” he said.
“Their entry into our market validates us” and “Our sales are popping” translate into English as “They’re going to crush us.” Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
