Google Acquires Mobile Microblogging Service: Jaiku


Google is acquiring Finnish social mobile microblogging service, Jaiku. manager at Google said “We’re excited to announce that
we’ve acquired Jaiku, a company
that’s been hard at work developing useful and innovative applications
for staying in touch with the people you care about most — regardless
of whether you’re at a computer or on a mobile phone.”

Jaiku has been compared to industry leader Twitter, where friends
always know what their friends are doing via mini mobile posts. 
Analysts are saying that this is a yet another move by Google to be the
master of all media including IM, mobile Web and microblogging.
