Goggle Buys Frommers

It was announced recently that Google bought Frommers. Think of the possibilities of combining google and google maps with all the travel information that Frommers publishes. Sounds like good things are in the future for travelers.

Google has agreed to buy Frommer's travel guides from US publishing firm Wiley & Sons for an undisclosed sum.
Google said it would be "a great addition" to the restaurant guide business Zagat, which it bought last year for $151m (£96m).
The search giant will publish reviews online under the Frommer's brand. It has not said whether it will continue to produce printed books.
Its aim is to provide a review for "every relevant place in the world".
