Doubleclick recieve Google treatment
Reuters reports here on the new DoubleClick Ad Exchange introduced on Friday that represents the first major overhaul of the system since Google acquired DoubleClick for more than $3 billion in March 2008. It is a key plank in Google's plan to supplement its market-leading business of serving text-based ads alongside Web search results with the more visual, graphical ads that appear on websites - a market dominated by online rivals Yahoo and Time Warner Inc's (TWX.N) AOL.
