Google buys drone maker Titan Aerospace
The company that wants to know everything now owns a maker of drones. This can’t end well, though the company claims they want the drones to provide high-altitude Internet services.
“Titan Aerospace and Google share a profound optimism about the potential for technology to improve the world,” Google said in its acquisition statement. “It’s still early days, but atmospheric satellites could help bring internet access to millions of people, and help solve other problems, including disaster relief and environmental damage like deforestation. It’s why we’re so excited to welcome Titan Aerospace to the Google family.”
The drones may also provide a useful tool for its mapping needs, as well.
