Google Is Buying One Company A Week

Dear Google, let's do lunch next week...don't forget to bring your buckets of cash. Can't make it next week? Pencil us in for the week after that, or the one after that, and so on. big grin

As revealed in October, this year Google has spent $1.4 billion on 57 acquisitions this year. So yes, with 52 weeks in a year, that sounds about right. Of course, Google has been particularly aggressive with its acquisitions this year, especially in the mobile, social, and search areas.
