Google, apparently, isn’t entirely happy with the current design of Google+. As such, it has “acq-hired” part of the design team Cuban Council to help out. “We’re very
excited to share that some folks on our team will be joining Google to focus on design aspects of Google+,” the Cuban Council blog explains. “Having worked closely with a variety of Google
product teams since 2005, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to focus our creative efforts within the organization.” Google confirmed the mini-acquisition in an email to TechCrunch.
