As has been widely reported, Google has announced plans to acquire DoubleClick for $3.1 billion. Details from Google can be found in the official press release, on the Official Google Blog, or in a five-page FAQ Google created.

Google also held a brief press conference on Friday, which paidContent has available as an MP3 for download.

Besides the display ad-serving side of DoubleClick, the deal also includes Performics, a search and affiliate marketing agency. There's also the idea of an ad exchange that DoubleClick recently announced, though there's nothing concrete there to speak of.

The deal is being lauded by some as a strategic imperative, while apparently already facing pressure on the anti-trust and privacy fronts.
