If you thought that the rumors of Google purchasing WhatsApp for $1 billion sounded too good to be true, you were right. A WhatsApp executive has told AllThingsD that not only is the company going to be sold to Google, but the two companies aren't even talking about a possible deal...

Grammar correction - "that not only is the company NOT going to be sold to Google..."

Technically, it's a word omission. There's nothing grammatically incorrect about that statement the way it is even though it's an incorrect statement.

Somehow, i'm glad!
But that's a huge amount of money to be denying, if the were really talking about it.

Thank god. Whatsapp... PLEASE DONT SELL OUT TO GOOGLE. I will stop using your product if you do.
Google will only buy you out, to eventually close you down and stick a whole bunch of ads in between. I loath Google.

Windows, MAC, Linux, Solaris people using Google search and even Gmail. Imagine that. Boggles the mind.

Meh. Other options will come up. New startups will appear. Then they will get popular and be bought by either Apple or Google and later get killed off. .... Wash, rinse, repeat.... The lucky apps developers get rich.
