Re: Google acquires Nik Software !

Don,

As a software developer I completely agree. My only fear here is for Nik's desktop products, they don't fit in with the web-based, mobile-centric business model of Google. I think we may see the end of their great desktop/plug-in products in the near future. Purely conjecture, of course.
