Geeky Gospels

Hugo Barra, Google's VP for Android left the company to join Chinese mobile phone maker Xiaomi.

Hugo's girlfriend Amanda Rosenberg now officially converted to Sergey Brin's girlfriend.

Sergey Brin is the cofounder of Google. A spokesperson for Brin and his wife Anne Wojcicki had confirmed today that the couple had split but 'remain good friends and partners.' The GLBT community community protested the lighthearted use of the term 'partners'. A divorce is estimated at around $20 billion for this couple.

As a result, now both founders of Google owns an asian lover, officially.

The Chinese media aliken the fiasco to the Wang Lijun - BoGu Kailai - Bo Xilai romance. Mr. Bo is a member of 25 people CCP politburo and the Governor of Chongqing. Wang lijun is the deputy mayor and police chief of Chongqing. BoGu Kailai is the wife of Bo Xilai and lover of Wang Lijun. When the romance went sour, BoGu tried to arrest Wang, and Wang fled to the United State's Consulate in Chengdu. Bo was tried on incompetent leadership as Wang's boss this month in Jinan.

Not every love story had a happy ending. The Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un's ex-girlfriend singer Hyon Song-wol was executed by machine guns with her family members on watch on August 17. Hyon and a number of her colleagues of the Unhasu Orchestra were accused of producing and watching pronographic materials. Kim's wife Ri Sol-ju was also a member of the Unhasu Orchestra.

As it had proved in time, love is a very costly business, sometimes fatally dangerous.
