What is Google up to?

So, What's Google up to with this acquisition? Google inked a deal to buy dMarc broadcasting for a cool USD 1.24 billion. dMarc pioneered the concept of directly linking the marketers and radio stations and is a market leader in that space.

Google has long straggled from its search origins, but what could they be doing with a broadcasting company? How can Google integrate this business / channel with its mainstay, which is still its search business.

I am amazed at the kind (and rate) of innovations coming from Google and I am expecting some game changing plays with this acquisition as well.

    I still licking my wounds from not buying Google when it was around USD 100 just 15 months back..

    I guess, Google is still an attractive buy if we can gather cash to play around..

    USD 1000? I hope Google splits so that more people can buy..
