Then Google must have rolled their own at (Google's web site)/alerts. I was hoping that the guys had scored a "win" by creating something interesting and then being bought out by Google. (I have no relationship with the people at Google Alerts, just wishing some fellow entrepreneurs some good luck.)

Promotion of what? Google Alerts? Why would I promote them when I already stated publicly that I have no affiliation with them? I don't blame anyone for being overly skeptical or cynical these days, but you are incorrect if you think I have an ulterior motive here.
To clear up the confusion, I *am* from Google Alert (Indigo Stream Technologies) and picked up this thread through - you guessed it - Google Alert. So here's an entry from our FAQs:
What is Google Alert's relationship with Google?
Google Alert is unaffiliated with Google, although we are in regular contact with them. Google Alert uses Google's Web APIs to perform its searches. Google has generously provided Google Alert with a high-capacity Web APIs key for our needs, and agreed to the use of the Google Alert name and googlealert.com domain. Google has agreed to our release of premium paid Google Alert services.
I think this should answer the questions in this thread.
