Tech giant Google has announced plans to buy phone hardware maker Motorola. Talk about playing a game of monopoly. Google has turned into the “Philadelphia Eagles” of the tech world, pursuing everything that has ever stood ground in tech life, while making considerable advances with their own technology. Not only will they have control over the hardware that Motorola will provide, but their Android software will run on it as well similar to what Apple has done for years to make gains in the user experience. Has there ever been anything so significant? Not in a while, as this is Google’s most significant deal to date. Google already has many subsidiaries which include YouTube, Google Voice, and On2 Technologies. The deal is set to close at the end of the year or at the beginning of 2012.
