Max sent me a tip and told me that the Fold.com site has the countdown pictured above. Does this mean that Fold.com isn’t folding like everyone thought it was going to? They had a “For Sale” page up before and popular sites like TechCrunch wrote about how Fold.com was throwing in the towel.
It looks like this was some kind of publicity stunt so that they could get some more exposure. The countdown has over 50 days left and says “Everything you read about Fold is wrong.” at the bottom. I wonder if any more news about this will make its way to the Web?
It could also be possible that someone who purchased the domain bought their technology, too. That way they can just be relaunching the service instead of reinventing it.
