Another acquisition by Google...

Tuesday, October 31, 2006

I was rather surprised when a few minutes ago, JotSpot sent me this message:

We're writing to let you know that Google has acquired JotSpot. We believe this is great news for our users. More importantly, we want to reassure you that you'll continue to have uninterrupted access to your account. Both Google and JotSpot are committed to supporting our customers, and we understand that users have invested a lot in our products. In the near-term, we're focused on migrating JotSpot to Google's systems and datacenters. We'll work hard to make that move as seamless as possible so that customers won't be inconvenienced.
It seems that this keeps going and going. Undoubtedly, google has acquired a market-dominant position in search engine and internet services. Would Gogle finally break competition laws? Maybe we should re write the competition law. As promised, I will discuss this further in the next posts.
