Consumer web site gains lots of popularity by bringing the latest consumer news.

Now here is Michael Finney's vote for the strangest consumer move of the year: Consumer's Union, has just bought the website, http://consumerist.com/.

You may know about Consumer's Union since they publish Consumer Reports Magazine. It is the big-dog uptight consumer group.

Consumerist.com is a rowdy, fun read that gives a light overview of a few daily consumer news reports.
