DealBook reports that the increasingly nauseating FaceBook (inverse proportion to number of widgets added per day) has gone and bought itself a company. These are the details: the company is called Parakey (Latin for ‘the ability to belt-buckle bob for a Harvard drop-out’). It’s a start-up which had previously been “trying to bridge the gap between information hosted on the Web and data stored on computer hard drives” (translation: two FaceBook users). Parakey was founded and staffed by two people, Blake Ross and Joe Hewitt, “best known for their contributions to Firefox” (translation: they surfed the net a lot using Firefox, not Explorer). The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
