Google buys 3-D software maker Bump

Bump Technologies logoContinuing its furious buying spree, Google has acquired Bump Technologies, maker of software that makes computer desktops appear to be 3-D.  This latest acquisition by the world’s most popular search engine, says School of Management Professor N. Venkat Venkatraman, just intensifies the competitive battle between Google and Apple.

“Looks like Google and Apple may be defining the battle for user interface when, just a few years back, we would have expected Microsoft to do so.”
