Discovery Acquires HowStuffWorks

I used to visit the website HowStuffWorks on a semi-regular basis to learn about the inner workings of various pieces of technology. It is a fun and educational site, but one thing that always bothered me about it is the large amount of advertising which is displayed on each page (although a quick visit to the website reveals the advertisements are not as in-your-face as they used to be). I really can’t complain too much since HowStuffWorks is such an excellent resource and costs nothing to use. Maybe now that Discovery Communications has acquired the site for the huge sum of 250 million dollars, it will receive a much-deserved renovation.
