(This is a tangent, but I don't think that's a good reason to allow misinformation to go uncorrected.)
What's funny is the number of failed / retired Google products, like Google Checkout...that didn't last long.
Err... Google Checkout is still around.
I'm surprised they didn't just absorb PayPal.
PayPal was bought by eBay in 2002 for US$1.5 billion. Google couldn't afford that back then.
