Google to Buy Motorola Mobility (Timeline):
Via Business Insider, by Matt Rosoff, a good article and an excellent Infographic representing Google’s timeline from the start up to the Motorola’s Mobility acquisition. It includes the launch of various products giant’s Mountain View, mixed in time with its most important acquisitions.
View the entire path in a single graphic is truly breathtaking. The distance between the search engine that capped the creation of Google Inc, to this day, is really the story of a solid and sustainable strategy to dominate the world of the web as well as Microsoft did with PC operating systems and IBM it did before with computers for the corporate world.
Earlier today, the same Matt had written an article about the 16 largest acquisitions of Google through its history, where he reviewed one by one, and to a brief overview of the current state of the same.
It went through the purchase of the Android mobile platform for about 50M; the Feedburner RSS Tools (100M); the bidding exchanger for online advertising, Admeld (400M); and of course from Double Click, the developer and provider of ad serving services, by 3.1B.
