Google acquires video ads company mDialog

In a separate development, Google said the team at wireless company Alpental Technologies had joined it

Google has acquired video advertising company mDialog in a bid to provide more high quality video options to its advertisers.

The Internet giant plans over time to work with the mDialog team to include their technology and expertise into its DoubleClick product suite for advertisers. Nothing will change for mDialog's customers immediately, it added.

In a Google+ post, Google said that it and mDialog are committed to offering more ways for publishers "to monetize live, linear and on-demand video content across all screens." The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

With U.S. headquarters in San Francisco, mDialog works with media companies in North America to manage, deliver, and measure video advertising across a variety of IP-connected devices, including Apple's iPad and iPhone, Android devices and the Xbox, it said on its website.

The company said in a statement on its website that it is joining the DoubleClick team at Google. "Together, we're looking forward to offering content creators new and even better ways to make money from their live and on-demand content," it said.

Separately, Google said it was excited to welcome to the company the team at wireless company Alpental Technologies. A company spokesman said Thursday it wasn't sharing any other details or comments about the deal. Alpental will help Google in its bid to extend fast Internet to remote locations, for which the company already has projects deploying drones, balloons and satellites, the Wall Street Journal reported.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
