• Google Acquires Picnik

    Today Google's current spending spree continued with the announcement that they have acquired Picnik, the popular web-based image editing service (see blog posts at Google and Picnick).

    As you'd expect, both parties are making "business as usual, no need to panic" noises. Also not surprisingly, many users are making "you will be assimilated, resistance is futile" noises in response to Google's ever-expanding empire.

    Interestingly, Picnik is tightly integrated with Flickr which is owned by Yahoo.

    When the fuss dies down it will be interesting to see what Google does with Picnick. It seems likely that it will be integrated into Google Apps and/or Picasa.
