on acquisitions

Watching Google from the outside – with the limited information that offers – it seems they buy companies mainly to get more:
– Data. Like articles, meta data, digital archives, photographs.
– Users. Or in more general terms, customers or market share.
– Technology. Mostly, that’s software, like web or desktop applications.
– Developers. Or, in more general terms, call it employees.
