Grading Google

Talk about a serial acquiror, over at Silicon Alley Insider they've assembled a list of 52 of Google's recent acquisitions.  Silicon Alley Insider has done us all a service by grading Google's efforts.  The grades are decidedly mixed  - an "F" for Dodgeball (what was that?) and an "A+" for Applied Semantics among others.  It's hard to know whether the grades really matter given that Google says it intends to use the acquisitions as a way of doing back door hiring of talented teams rather than to acquire useful new technology.  Hmm.  Why not just hire them and save on the legal bills?
