AOL, how about.me?

According to Tony Connrad’s Blog , AOL acquired the personal profile startup about.me .
For me, about.me was somehow similar with Twitter: very simple, very clean and very effective (or how Tonty Connard say on his blog: “duh, why hasn’t someone done that”). I know that usually big companies are killing the acquired startups, but on the other hand TechCrunch is part of AOL and it’s still a high quality online resource.
But definitely, to sell a startup  4 days after the launch with “tens of millions of dollars" must be a record…
