I hate it when I see crap like this. The short version: someone says Shutterfly may be interested in buying Smugmug.
I hate shutterfly. From everything I've seen, smugmug is by far the best online photo site there is, I hope they don't give it all up by joining with shutterfly.
...it sounds like pure speculation on the author's part....
Wonder why anyone from smugmug have not commented?
They have before. They have numerous times commented they have no intentions on being bought or acquired. I suspect nothing has changed. One cannot comment on every rumor.
The Shutterfly site is IMHO just like the wal-mart and walgreens photo sites....
We have no plans to. We love our business, we love our customers, and we love the people we work with. Not only that, but it pays the bills - we're profitable, with no debt and no investors! Why mess with a good thing?
