The day that google acquired the world

Philipp Lenssen, has an interesting (scary) thought about the day that google acquired the world (aka internet :) ). The date that he has chosen, 12 May 2017, sent a shiver up my spine. I, definitely, don’t want to see the world taken over by the most efficient search engine on my birthday!! :) That would be some scary stuff to wake up too.

Since we are on the subject of acquisitions, google paid over $3 billion for doubleclick, a company that google didn’t beleive in when it wanted to serve ads in the first place. How ironic! You pay more than what you invested in your company, to acquire something you didn’t believe in! I find that a little absurd, and you?
