Never heard of Internetbrands.com, but auto.com and some of the other names are well known.



Hopefully this sale will allow Steve's to expand product evaluations and increase awareness of this forum.

I hope that being acquired by a large company does not end up taking away the uniqueness of Steve's DigiCams. Large Corporations have a way of doing this.

It's probably a matter of public record somewhere.

My primary interest is whether or not the moderators will get a cut. :-)
