Re: [OT] Weather Underground being acquired by The Weather Chann

This is bad.

Have you been to the weather.com lately? It's like a freaking geocities site circa 1998... motion and flashing everywhere... half the page is ads, fourty percent are sensationized weather-related stories, videos or photo montages... maybe 10% is what you'd expect... over all it's all fluff and very little substance. Their only redeeming feature--the text forecast--got harder and harder to locate and now seems to be completely gone. You can no longer get a 5-day narrative text forecast from them that can read on a single screen, you must click through all the days (and probably refresh their 55-second Bud Lite weekend ads, as well as "One Weird Trick" and "Obama Lowers Mortgage Rates Again!")

They are buying WU to eliminate competition.
