    After some reading, i find these

    1. It's a financial advisory magazine.
    2.It's started by Time Magazine
    3.It's among the most read finance magazine.

    The sale is not for Domain(though it's a monster name), it's a biz deal.

    Holy. Someone hit the jackpot. $20M for a business built on one of the best domain names? (even a failing business, it still get over a million visitors /month) this was a no brainer.

    Looks like CNN is going out of business or can not afford to pay the rent for the domain anymore.

    20 million for money.com is cheap compared to 30 million for voice.com
    I would have guessed 100 million for money.com to be the minimum price.

    I own ReceiveyourMoney.com and Transferyourmoney.com

    I always wondered if "money" was the right word, (cash, bucks, dollar, bill... etc)

    Now I know it is!

    Paper tabloids are dying. 2013 Recent USA deal:

    Boston Globe sold for $70 million, massive drop from its record $1.1 billion price, 2 decades before.

    This included Boston.com other valuable domains.

    this should be music to your ears, domainers (online)

    20 million at 9.95 a year buys it forever....Bargain as one day you will say I remember the big mac was only $5 and they only paid 20 million to control money.
