*Google Acquires Keyhole Corp*

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - October 27, 2004 - Google Inc. (Nasdaq: GOOG) 
today announced it acquired Keyhole Corp., a Mountain View, Calif.-based 
digital mapping company.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"With Keyhole, you can fly like a superhero from your computer at home 
to a street corner somewhere else in the world - or find a local 
hospital, map a road trip or measure the distance between two points," 
said Jonathan Rosenberg, vice president, Product Management. "This 
acquisition gives Google users a powerful new search tool, enabling 
users to view 3D images of any place on earth as well as tap a rich 
database of roads, businesses and many other points of interest. Keyhole 
is a valuable addition to Google's efforts to organize the world's 
information and make it universally accessible and useful."

With an Internet connection, users enter an address or other location 
information and Keyhole's software accesses the database and takes them 
to a digital image of that location on their computer screen. The 
interactive software then gives users many options, including the 
ability to zoom in from space-level to street-level, tilt and rotate the 
view or search for other information such as hotels, parks, ATMs or 
subways. Unlike traditional mapping technologies, Keyhole creates a 
dynamic 3D interface for geographic information.

Keyhole's technology combines a multi-terabyte database of mapping 
information and images collected from satellites and airplanes with 
easy-to-use software.

Google also announced, effective immediately, a price reduction for 
Keyhole 2 LT from $69.95 to $29.95.

Keyhole was founded in 2001. Keyhole customers include consumers, large 
and small businesses and public agencies. Current Keyhole users will 
benefit from the expanded resources and operational scale made possible 
by the integration into Google. Their service will continue uninterrupted.
