Google and M&A

Google has apparently bought Plink, who has developed a "visual search engine." One application is that you can take a picture of any work of art on your cell phone and the engine will identify it. The application is built on the Android OS. Pretty amazing stuff. Google has a similar application (called Google Goggles) under development and the Plink team will work on functionally improving this capability. For details, please go here.
