Google Acquires TalkBin, A Feedback Platform For Businesses

TalkBin offers a platform that lets customers give immediate feedback to local businesses (users submit their opinions and critiques via mobile applications, and it looks like the businesses can read and respond to them from a web app). TalkBinís homepage shows screenshots of both Android and iOS applications, but I canít find them on either marketplace (Iím not sure if the apps were pulled or if they simply havenít been released yet).

The mostly-stealthy Montain View-based company was founded in December 2010 by Qasar Younis, Michael Ma, and Sunny Dhillon. Given how new the service is it seems that Google is after the team, but it also apparently sees potential in the product too ó Google will be shutting down TalkBin temporarily, but it plans to reopen the service to new businesses down the line.

Yet even more mind-numbing, probably pointless chatter.

They 'bought' the engineers, hoping to keep them there.

My thoughts exactly walkman, they didn't pony up for a 4 month old company, they see the potential and bought the minds behind it, imo.
