According to statements in its 10-Q filing, Google plans to accelerate its acquisition rate for the rest of the 2010.
Google has already started the year on a strong buying run, purchasing or announcing the intention to purchase nine companies for a total of $145 million. That's just the first three months and doesn't include bigger purchases of Admob ($750 million, still waiting on regulatory approval) and On2 ($123 million).
According to the 10-Q filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, Google (GOOG) intends to pick up that pace. More
