Weekend survey: What do you think of Google’s plans to buy ITA Software?

You may have heard about Google’s plans to buy ITA Software, the company that powers many online travel sites. If you haven’t, catch the lively debate (above). How fun!

So what do you think?

Should the dominant Internet search engine be allowed to buy the dominant developer of airfare search systems? Will this create a monopoly — or lower prices?

Here’s the survey.

Here are the real-time results.

Do you think this acquisition has any relevance to travelers? Or is this just an “inside baseball” issue? Send me , and please don’t forget to include your full name, city and occupation.

Have a great New Year!
