Woot! Bought by Amazon

Yesterday the news was that Woot! the popular discount shopping site famous for one day one deal bargains was bought by Amazon.com. Like some of other Amazon properties, apparently Woot! is on its own to run its business. (Audible.com comes to mind as another Amazon property that runs this way.)

This morning the first Woot! deal after the announcement is an Amazon Kindle for $149. I think there is irony in there somewhere.
