Google looking for a UI maker to bump itself to the top?
Google has just added a new group of UI specialists to its roster of talent.
The makers of Bumptop, the desktop-transforming software for both Windows and Mac, posted a notice on its website that it has been acquired by Google.
Google's purchase puts an end to the sale of Bumptop software, though fans can still download it for free for the next week. Owners of Bumptop Pro will still be supported, though long-term plans are unknown.

Could this be a sign of where Android and Chrome OS could be headed?
