How Google Buys Quicksee an Israeli Startup Company

Search giant Google said that it is buying its second Israeli start-up, Quiksee, in a deal estimated at 10 million U.S. dollars, local daily Haaretz reported on Monday.

Quiksee (MentorWave Technologies) is a location-based service that provides “customized immersive visual experiences,” according to their LinkedIn page.

The firm allows web surfers to create “virtual tours that include rich-media, multimedia, annotations, links and video,” said the company’s website.

Quiksee’s application appears to be a close-up refinement of Google’s existing “Street View” service, which lets viewers view street level images of cities and sites worldwide.
