    I just heard on the radio that they were offerred [Dr. Evil voice]6 Billion dollars[/Dr. Evil voice] by Google,to which they refused the offer. Google has now made plans to start their own similar service. All I gotta say is wow, you had your chance.... should have taken the money and ran like the wind, imo.

    Yeah I can't believe that when I heard it. one must look at exactly what the offer was, I don't think they offered them 6 billion is straight up cash, maybe some in google stock or something of the sort.

    old date on the story there, wonder why they mentioned it on the radio this morning? Slow day in the news maybe? Aside from a terrorist getting caught in Edmonton and a Guatamalean war criminal getting caught in Lethbridge, nothing going on in Alberta

    It was stupid at first blush -- but now that they have used that as a "low-valuation" estimate for their pending IPO.... they're going to laugh all the way to the bank.

    Current estimates are putting their IPO north of $15b.

    Smart move by a very smart CEO.
