BitTorrent purchases uTorrent

BitTorrent, the leader and creator of the P2P technology that is driving most of the video and large-file peer-to-peer exchanges just announced that they bought µTorrent (micro-Torrent or uTorrent), the company providing the smallest, lightest (and maybe, fastest) BitTorrent client.

Apparently, they intend to re-inforce their presence, possibly in preparation of an extension of the technology to appliances like TV sets.
