Wow! Wowio In the News Again

BUSINESS
News that WOWIO has been bought from Platinum by Platinum CEO, Brian Altounian.  Um wow.  Someone not on vacation like myself should ask both Altounian and Platinum for comment on the following questions: Did the Platinum Board approve this purchase by Altounian in his individual capacity (and what's the make-up of the Platinum Board - how many "outside" directors are there); What are the terms of the deal and was there any third-party evaluation of that deal (just how arms-length was this transaction) and finally, when is WOWIO and/or Platinum going to pay off its debt owed to content creators?
