That's the rumour that's doing the rounds. What are your thoughts on the deal?

Maybe Google should pool together with other buyers to get it cheaper Wink

It's a shame they don't service the B2B sector. It'd be ideal for our line of work but at the moment they don't cater for our market.

To be honest, Martyn... I have absolutely no idea. I see the Google Ads for Groupon all the time but, beyond that, I've never really looked at it in any detail.

coupon sites are now in big demand online, maybe they want to maintain the power of advertising through coupons that is why groupon agreed to work with Google.

The thought that Google wants to buy everything is a lil'bit scary for me. They'll reach the point when they'll own the entire Internet someday, and then just start to charge us for every service ...and with no option left, we will be forced to play.

...and then my alarm rang, and I woke up from this nightmare...
