Trimble acquires SketchUp from Google

My mind is still a bit boggled with today’s news that US-based IT giant Trimble is acquiring SketchUp from the search giant Google (normally, we hear lots of stories about the latter buying businesses – it’s less common for us to read about it disposing of technologies).

My 30 July 2007 post on e-Builder has prompted a comment regarding a relative newcomer to the US construction collaboration market: Oakland, California-based EADOC. The website is a bit sparse on detail about the company and its founders (a press release – in fact, the only press release – says entrepreneurs Eric Law and Arnout van …
