People told us Larry Page, Google’s new CEO, would be all about action, but we didn’t expect this.Today – on Page’s very first day in the new job – Google went out and offered $900 million to buy patents from Nortel.
Jay Yarow reports that Google “is stocking up on patents since the tech world is getting filled with patent lawsuits.”
The move is exactly like the kind of move everyone said Page’s Google would start making – a bold use of Google’s huge pile of cash to solve a problem quickly.
We can’t wait for day two.
What’ll it be? Foursquare for $1 billion? Twitter for $10 billion?
