I caught the swine flu which has taken me out of commission. I feel a little like Rip Van Winkle after a long rest. Waking up to see a flurry of M&A activity as well as large financings. In the last couple of days we had EA buy Playfish for $400M, Google buying AdMob for $750M, HP acquiring 3com for $2.7B, and just recently social gaming provider Playdom raised $43M in venture financing. Is this the sign of an early tech rally?
