According to report "Like.com is in the 'final stages' of a deal that would see the site and its technology become part of Google; the deal is said to be costing Google 'upwards' of $100 million. This deal is only for the website and its tech only, not the company as a whole."

This new image search technology may be used for an Android style update or it could be for rumored social media network that Google is supposedly making.
