April 01, 2003: Scoop! Overture Buys Google

I just received a phone call from my contact at Google announcing that they've been bought by Overture. This, of course, comes on the heels of Overture's purchase of Alta Vista and FAST. Keep watching the press releases section of Google's site. I'll provide updates as I get them.

Update: Sources say Google has no April Fools joke this year because they've been too busy dealing with the Overture acquisition.
