Google Ready To Launch A New Travel Search Site

Rumor has it that Google is getting ready to launch a new travel service with data gained in its $700 million acquisition of ITA.

Google’s move into the airfare search game shouldn’t be too big of a surprise–the search giant made a $700 million deal to purchase flight data aggregation company ITA Software back in July 2010.

Senators Throwing Punches At AT&T

Sprint isn’t the only one who opposes the AT&T merge with T-Mobile. A few U.S. senators have also spoken up against the deal. Although AT&T spins the deal as one that will help customers nationwide with coverage, a few senators question the spin off. Senator Al Franken from Minnesota stated that the acquisition would allow AT&T to raise prices and cut thousands of jobs. Senator Herb Kohl from Wisconsin also claimed that the merger would give AT&T a 43% share of the U.S. mobile market. AT&T and Verizon would share about 80% of the market if the deal went through, he said.
