Google To Buy Skybox Imaging for $1 Billion

This is NOT a revolutionary news item.  It is predictable enough not be hot news, especially on Friday.

“If Google does buy Skybox Imaging, it would make sense for the search giant to use the company’s high-quality, real-time photos and videos to improve its Google Maps and Google Earth offerings”

And the “virtual ISP” (Internet Service Provider) aspects of the possibilities ARE interesting.

“Meanwhile, Google may also see this potential acquisition as a way to bring Internet to the two-thirds of the population who don’t have it. Google has already announced Project Loon, a network of balloons to beam Internet access.”
