Google Spent Over $1.4 billion In 57 Acquisitions In The Last Year [eweek.com]
Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) spent more than $1.4 billion to purchase 57 companies of various sizes and persuasions, blasting apart the company's previous record of 48 acquisitions from 2010.

The search engine provider revealed in a 10-Q filing with that Securities and Exchange Commission that it paid $941 million in cash for three deals alone.

That sum includes $676 million for flight software provider ITA Software in April; $151 million for restaurant review guide maker Zagat; and $114 million for daily deals asset Daily Deals, both in September.
