/// Google Acquires Shopping Locker Service BufferBox
Google has acquired BufferBox, an e-commerce shopping locker start-up. BufferBox will continue to offer its service, which is currently free. One notable aspect of the acquisition is that it is only the second time Google has purchased a Google Ventures portfolio company. The previous such deal was for Milk, Kevin Rose’s mobile start-up. Rose is now a partner at Google Ventures, and he was the one who led the investment into BufferBox.
