Courtesy of Tekedia Intelligence Forum user, exploit, we just noticed that Google has acquired 95 companies within a decade.
Between February 12, 2001 and April 26, 2011 Google has acquired 95 companies. The rate at which Google is going is serious!Even now that Google is trying to expand to Africa, there is high possibilities that most Africa startups would be acquired by Google. (exploit, TIF)
Google is a computer software and a web search engine company. Each acquisition listed is for the respective company in its entirety, unless otherwise specified. The acquisition date listed is the date of the agreement between Google and the acquisition subject. The value of each acquisition is listed in US dollars because Google is headquartered in the United States. If the value of an acquisition is unlisted, then it is undisclosed. If the Google service that is derived from the acquired company is known, then it is also listed here. (wikipedia)
