It's good to have a War Chest

It must be fun to be Google and have money to purchase companies. Their mode right now it to pick up companies that enhance their current (or future) offerings - but sometimes it appears they have a "eye for cool". Now, I don't know anyone at Google, have no idea what their long-term plan is or will be - and there are plenty of pundits that are beginning to march to the "Google and world domination" tune - but I really have no idea.

I'm going to put some of my ideas on my other blog {blurred} Visionary - so this entry is more about who they've purchase recently...
