Google Buys Zagat
Now apparently still hungry for the localized advertising dollars that food review sites like Yelp rake in, Google has bought Zagat, which comes with its ready trove of restaurant review data, for better or for worse. Terms of the deal hasn't been disclosed.
Founders Tim and Nina Zagat said in a statement on their site: "We couldn't be happier to see our baby placed into such good hands and are looking forward to being Googlers in the years ahead."
