We are no longer using 2checkout as a payment gateway due to the fact we take credit cards directly. All 2CO users have been re assigned to "credit card". You can still however select paypal or mail in payment from the invoice drop down menu. Thank you!

Facebook to buy Instagram for $1 billion

$1 Billion for a company with essentially no revenue?  The company's barely 2 years old and the CEO could get $400 million from the deal ... not a bad ROI.

FYI ...

smart move. Instagram was turning into it's own social media site that could compete on some levels with Facebook. Also its picture posting/editing was so slick that it will be a good addition for FB versus them creating their own.

Smart move and a good one for FB IMHO

I'm not a fan of Instagram. I have to agree with everyone else. Why do I want to take a 8MP 975x1630 image and have them chop it to a grainy 2001 digital camera image.. I downloaded the app and tried it for a week or so, but it has since been removed from my Inc2.

I do however think that Zuckergerg only purchased it to kill any competition.

This is kind of stupid, but they should have their reasons.
