After hounding them left and right, the folks at Google did us a solid and sent us an email confirming their acquisition of “Outlook for hipsters” startup Plannr.

The story is bigger than what we orginally wrote apparently, as the search company today has acquired all assets of the Ben Eidelson and Jason Prado run “Everything Is the Best LLC,” a Seattle based holding company which builds mobile clients, including Plannr and a couple of other mobile applications including ridepenguin, LoveTap and SheetIt.

From a Google spokesperson this morning:

“We’re excited to welcome Ben and Jason to Google. They have built several innovative mobile applications, and we believe they can help us make a better and more useful mobile experience for our users.”

So as of today, Google is a (slightly) hipper and more mobile place. Having met at Stanford, Eidelson will be Product Manager and Prado will be Software Engineer of a new project they declined to mention at Google. And while the two wouldn’t disclose an acquisition price, I’m guessing it was around $6 million.
