Google Purchases PushLife and Possibilities
Google recently purchased PushLife, a company that allows users to sync their mobile phones with desktop software, including iTunes and Windows Media Player.
PushLife announced the acquisition on their website, stating, “We’ll be joining Google’s engineering team in Canada, and will be working on building better mobile applications for all users. The past three years have been an incredible ride and, while we will eventually be discontinuing the PushLife service, we look forward to more adventures at Google.”
The company’s software is already available on BlackBerry, Android and some Nokia mobile devices. This technology could help Google a number of ways; they may be able to create a music store for the Android with the ability to sync music purchased on their phones with their computer and vice versa. PushLife’s technology expertise could mean major developments for the Android and possible trouble for iTunes.
No further comments were made by Google or PushLife of future plans.
