As most of the world already knows, Google is in the information business, but even with that knowledge, some of Google’s acquisitions still raise eyebrows. Now word is going around that the search engine giant is in the midst of talks with airline IT specialists, ITA, with the possibility of a $1bn acquisition on the table. ITA current provides tools to help users find online flight information, providing the data behind travel sits such as Orbitz, Bing Travel, Kayak.com and CheapTickets. After taking into account Google’s love for information and data, this probably is a logical move, wouldn’t you say?
