So, they are buying a company that only has 90k users in hopes to pull in millions into buzz. Or are they just bringing aardvark in to have something to mildly compete with yahoo answer's glory. IDK.

Really I thought they spent to much, less than 100,000 users. With only 50 percent actually participating. Thats 1000 bucks per active user.

True, but once people who use Google's services are made aware of it by the Big G's brand marketing, that number will surely increase.

All I can say is I hope anyone that uses them understands the risk that they are taking. They already have too much knowledge about you. They need to be shut down now.

They bought technology - the actual site acompanying it is a mere bonus.

That'd be nice actually! Google almost never changes their layout. It'd be nice to keep the same facebook layout for more than a week for once.
