Make no mistake, the Google (GOOG) acquisition-spree is definitely still on.In fact, earlier today, we spoke on the phone with a VC who said, “Google just made offers on three of my investments.”

  • It can’t spend big chunks of it on big companies because of antitrust concerns.
  • Google is losing talented entrepreneurs left and right.
