Expedia and Google - mentioning it here just in case

This is - actually, has to be! - an April Fool which appeared on various sites yesterday in the US.

Apparently there are rumours swirling around about Google lining up a bid to buy Expedia.

Er.

Yahoo Finance has a Reuters story. MSN Money has one too.

All within the midday April 1 time limit - if you live on the West Coast, of course.

Surely, surely not...

Maybe we'll stand corrected. In fact, shares did actually jump 10% yesterday during trading on Wall Street.

[Expedia market cap, according to Google Finance, is $6.88 billion]

Talk of Google buying/partnering with skype too. At least one of these rumours has to be wrong/a joke - they don't have THAT much cash :)

Sam I Am: you wouldn't believe the rumours sweeping around the industry today. :-)
