Google to Buy Frommer's

google-acquires-frommers.jpgThe battle over local/mobile continues: Google is acquiring the travel brand Frommer’s from John Wiley & Sons for an undisclosed price. Last year Google bought Zagat for $151 million and disastrously merged its data into Google+. Reports the Wall Street Journal: "Google hasn't yet decided whether the Frommer's guidebooks will continue to be published in print... It is also possible that the Frommer's brand could be melded into the Zagat brand." [WSJ via TechCrunch]
