Google BumpTop, that physics-based 3D desktop thing, has been acquired by Google. "Today, we have a big announcement to make: we're excited to announce that we've been acquired by Google! This means that BumpTop (for both Windows and Mac) will no longer be available for sale. Additionally, no updates to the products are planned." No word on what Google's plans are.

Sounds awfully similar to the infamous Microsoft practices in the 1990s.

Buying potential or real competitors out of the market place, likely to make room for your own product.

Don't, be evil.
