In a move that has shocked the tech world, Google has announced that it will be replacing its CEO.

Effective April 4 of this year, Google co-founder Larry Page will become CEO, taking over for Eric Schmidt, who has been the company's chief executive since 2001. Schmidt will stay on as the company's executive chairman.

Schmidt, who was initially hired as CEO to provide more "mature" leadership, joked about the management shake-up onTwitter, tweeting, "Day-to-day adult supervision no longer needed!"

    This is all just a ploy to keep Google in the news since Steve Jobs is taking leave of absence.

      I didn't finish my sentence. I mean since Steve Jobs is in the news with the big Apple upset of his leave of absence.
      Sorry for confusion.
