Trendalyzer acquired by Google

Google announced yesterday that they acquired Trendalyzer, a data visualization software from Swedish company Gapminder"Trendalyzer generates moving graphics and other novel effects in the display of facts, figures, and statistics in presentations. In its nimble hands, Trendalyzer views development data—such as regional income distribution or trends in global health—as literally a world of opportunity."

I am not sure how and why Google bought them, but I doubt that Trendalyzer will be integrated in Google Analytics. It looks too powerful for a free tool.
