Plink Acquired - Should Improve Google Goggles

Google Goggles is a visual search tool for smart phones. Its one of several recent search enhancements for Google Mobile mentioned in this post by Greg Sterling. A recent post of his discusses Google's acquisition of Plink (a UK based startup that developed a visual search engine for Android) four months after the company’s public launch, and Google's plan to use the team to improve Google Goggles.

PlinkArt won the ‘peoples choice’ award in the IQPrize last year and then $100,000 in Google’s second Android Developer Challenge.
