In an effort to transmit information between continents through water, Google is planning on buying the Pacific.
Just kidding of course...but it just blows my mind how many companies are being bought these days. It's like there will be 5 companies left to dominate the world and each of them will do EVERYTHING. Every morning I wake up and either Google, Yahoo, News Corp, Interactive Corp or Microsoft is buying a company and getting into a new field.
I think Google should change their mission to "dominate the globe via the Internet" because it sure feels like we're headed in that direction.
