Kinda weird that the WWW version of their site is dead but the non WWW version is up. Seems like they forgot to tweak a server setting.

adscapemedia.com/

Valleywag & Techcrunch are reporting the purchase price was 23 million. Both posts suggest this purchase was inline with the rumor of a Google Virtual world type game (Second Life or World of Warcraft).

Yeah, I was searching for "AdScape" on Google and found that the first result, with the "www." doesn't work, but it I just enter "adscapemedia.com" in the address bar, it work. Weird indeed.

A site called SEObytheSea.com has a very interesting list of patents that Adscape Media has in their portolio.

That's more than likely a DNS CNAME problem. Google never cached their page so either they don't have HTML based backup pages (vice their flash page) or never set up the site DNS correctly.
