18 Year Old Killed From Craigslist Meetup

An innocent 18 year old from San Diego was killed after meeting “someone” on Craigslist to sell his computer for $600. Instead of an innocent meetup, three individuals showed up and murdered the 18 year old boy, stole his cash and cell phone. The three attackers are named Rashon Abernathy, Seandell Jones and Shaquille Jordan and each were charged as adults with murder and robbery. Each faces a maximum penalty of life in prison if convicted. San Diego Superior Court Judge Joseph Brannigan entered not-guilty pleas on their behalf and set the bail at $5 million for each of them.

Free Dating???  Match.com Buys OkCupid For $50 Million

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, you can hear the 1978 classic song “Love Is In The Air” by John Paul Young playing all over and for Match.com, love means business, big business in fact. Match.com, owned by IAC, has bought rival OKCupid for a whopping $50 million in a cash transaction so the two online dating sites are finally tying the knot or if you prefer, getting hitched. Pun intended.

Unlike Match.com which charges for membership, OKCupid is free, so revenues come from advertising. And according to IAC, OKCupid’s revenue has risen faster than that of any other dating site. Probably because people have been hit hard with the economy and have looked for free access to online dating.
