    J2 Global (JCOM +2.7%) has acquired Ziff Davis, owner of PCMag.com, ExtremeTech, Geek.com, and other tech-oriented Web properties, for $167M in cash. The purchase is slightly off the beaten path for J2, a provider of hosted communications services, but the company notes it's both a major buyer of ads, and a seller via ad-supported sites such as eFax Free. Buying Ziff-Davis puts J2 into competition with GeekNet (GKNT -1.5%). J2 recently made an offer to buy cloud backup services firm Carbonite.
