Apetite For Acquisition: Google Infographic

Google Acquisitions.

Blogoscoped  has a nice post on why Google  has acquired these companies .. One of the obvious reasons is Google does not want to reinvent the  wheel when it comes to getting the relevant technology. I guess that they have figured out  how to  get more and more pages indexed by its famed algorithm is an invention enough for Google :-

Acquisition is getting all the important "ingredients"Like articles, meta data, digital archives, photographs.Users. Or in more general terms, customers or market share.Technology. Mostly, that’s software, like web or desktop applications.Developers. Or, in more general terms, call it employees.Watching Google from the outside – with the limited information that offers – it seems they buy companies mainly to get more:( source:)
