Google on deal making high!

Google must be dizzy after their deal making week - and Yahoo and Microsoft sicker than ever.

For Google have paid News Corp just short of $1bn (loose change if you're Google) so that they can dominate search and related ads at MySpace and other News Corp sites.

Given the rockin' popularity of MySpace the deal makes sense - even though the last laugh goes to Murdoch who only paid $500M odd for MySpace in the first place!!

But Google as always stole the show this week as they have also done a deal with Viacom whereby they will serve their video stuff/gunk on Google. Nice one as long as it doesn't clutter up Google Video much more!
