    Hmmm I think they might of got me on this article. After taking a closer look I realized the date says September 30th, 2008. I also notice this web site has a lot of tongue-in-cheek and humorous satire articles - although they also have some legitimate news stories too. -:) What do you think - is it a legit story?

    No, this is not likely at all. Maybe I am missing something and there is a reason for Google to purchase 4chan but I don't think so. I will assume the original article was a joke.
