Good article by The Wall Street Journal on the pace of acquisitions by new tech bellweathers Facebook, Zynga and Groupon. In "New Tech Spenders in Feeding Frenzy," the buying habits of tech companies are explored. According to the article, in the first three months of this year, Facebook, Zynga and Groupon have combined to make 21 acquisitions, over double the pace of their combined acquisitions during the same period last year. Many of the deals are moves to acquire technologies or enter new markets, as opposed to "aqui-hires" - acquisitions to acquire engineering or other talent.
