Word is going around that Zango might be in bed with the distributors of Storm. I have a great deal of respect for the people behind this speculation. However, I would offer a cautionary note.
After years of tracking Zango/180, etc., we have a really hard time believing that Zango would knowingly work with distributors of Storm. While there’s no love between us, they’re not complete idiots, and they know that if they got caught they’d be in serious trouble with the FTC.
I hope to get more up on this issue later today, time permitting.
Update: The Trend blog post has since been modified to reflect a more cautious tone.
