  4. 5 Things We Learned About Google’s Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg Last Night It was a night of kings of comedy and tech. Stephen Colbert moderated a discussion with Google execs Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg on September 23 in front of a packed house. The conversation ranged from Google’s upcoming products, national security, and Schmidt and Rosenberg’s new book, How Google Works. Here are 5 things we learned about the Google guys.
To get a job at Google, you have to be interviewed by “no more, no less” than five people. Schmidt and Rosenberg found that out the hard way after a candidate was interviewed 18 times before being rejected. They then created the five interview rule.
Google has a dress code, but it’s a simple one. “You have to wear, something,” Schmidt said, noting that Google once had a “pants problem.”
Google has developed a contact lens for people with diabetes. Schmidt says the company will release the product soon, which will notify the wearer of his insulin levels.
What’s the most ambitious thing Google is working on (that they could tell us about)? Super-fast Internet for every house. “A gigabit is like taking drugs,” Schmidt said of the connection speed Google is poised to deliver.
Porn helped make Google better. In efforts to figure out how to filter pornographic results out of searches, Rosenberg said Google developers discovered how to make searches more accurate.
(And one bonus!) Schmidt throws shade at Apple. “That looks like the Samsung phone of last year,” Schmidt said when Colbert pulled out his iPhone 6.

  10. 5 Things We Learned About Lenny Kravitz Last Night Ultra cool rocker and style icon Lenny Kravitz commanded cat calls and praise from the 92Y audience on September 19. The musician, actor, and all-around talented artist sat down with Rolling Stone’s Anthony DeCurtis to discuss his acclaimed career and new album, Strut. Here are 5 things we learned about Lenny Kravitz last night.
Kravitz wrote “Fly Away” while driving his daughter Zoë to school in Nassau.
Robert Plant cursed him out. While the two were touring together, the Led Zeppelin band member straightened out Kravitz, who was coming off an “attitude.” Kravitz grinned and said, “I got cursed out by my idol.”
Kravitz was “almost” bar mitzahed. “Because I had this afro, the yarmulke wouldn’t stay,” Kravitz joked, commenting on his bi-racial background from his African American mother and Jewish father.
He’s living his mother’s dreams. Kravitz has made many life decisions, such as establishing a home in Paris, because his mother, The Jeffersons actress Roxie Roker, never got to accomplish them herself (she died in 1995 from breast cancer). “I’m living the life she wanted to lead,” Kravitz said. “I’m doing it for both of us.”
Kravitz really loves his fans. He proved that by remaining on stage for 10 minutes after his talk concluded, signing autographs and taking pictures with the audience.
