Nick Carr writes today that Google should buy Intuit. All in the spirit of web services nibbling away at the suits. Maybe. But I’d like to see Google buy Freshbooks instead. And not just because Mike is a friend and a co-meshie who would doubtless shower his mesh buddies with extravagant gifts if it happened.
But also because Freshbooks is a superb app with a growing base, more in the spirit of what Google buys, and is soon to be moving into accounting, too. And if Google moved quickly, they might be able to get it for under $400 million or so. But I’m just guessing on the last part.
