Morgan Stanley managing director Benjamin Fried will replace Google's departed CIO Douglas Merrill, News.com reports. Besides making sure Googlers using Linux, Vista and Mac OS X can continue to work together, Fried will likely resume Merrill's role as evangelist for Google's enteprise software products.

He loves the sport, News.com reports, but he's got bad knees. In other words, put your money on Facebook continuing to drink Google's Jamba Juice.
