For the record, he didn't say it takes $3MM. He said if you paid $3MM it would get done.

Yeah, I was trying to make a point.

The Fool has decided to let the discussion boards fall into the "we don't do mobile" category, thus going the opposite direction of Facebook, which apparently thinks there's money to be made - even with a free app.

But if saying "mobile isn't important to the future of the boards" is the mantra, then so be it. I find it terribly short sighted, personally, but perhaps they don't see value in the boards, in which case I wonder why they exist at all? (No, it really doesn't cost a lot to build an app, and saying "Pay us $3MM and we'll do it" is, well, nonsense.
