CrunchWeek: Google Makes A Deal With The FTC, The Hot/Cold Apple And Waze Deal, 2013’s M&A Surge

2013 certainly started off with a bang in terms of tech business news, so we had a lot to talk about for CrunchWeek, that very special 10 minutes or so wherein a few of us writers gather ’round the TechCrunch TV studio and dish on the most compelling stories of the past seven days.

In this edition, Ms. Leena Rao, Mr. Drew Olanoff, and I dig into the FTC’s highly-anticipated settlement of its Google antitrust probe, the back-and-forth on Apple’s reported interest in buying geolocation startup Waze, and the big M&A stories that kicked off the new year — Avis’ $500 million acquisition of ZipCar and Al Jazeera’s $500 million purchase of Current TV.
