[TC] Google To Acquire fflick For $10 Million

Back in August we wrote about a neat service called fflick that looked to harness Twitter to power a movie sentiment and recommendation engine, with an added dash of colorful style. Now the service is getting two big thumbs up from Google: the search giant is in the process of acquiring the company for a price-tag of around $10 million (we expect the deal to close later this week).

Like pocket change for them, but I'm sure it's not like pocket change to the people getting paid. Good for fflick.

We are often caught up in discussions about money and we forget about people actually working on the software.
