According to the latest listings, the sites include 20 million accounts from, OneBip, Storybird, and Jobandtalent, as well as eight million accounts at Gfycat, 1.5 million ClassPass  accounts, 60 million Pizap accounts, and another one million StreetEasy property searching accounts.

The hacker is selling the eight additional hacked sites for 2.6 bitcoin, or about $9,350.

If I did the math correctly, that's $.0001 per record.

Is it my imagination or does Google seem increasingly out of touch with the public in re. the Web?

McDonalds probably has seen the high cost of labor as a future issue, has done the math, and concluded that kiosks for ordering meals are more cost effective than employees because they did the math and concluded that not having to pay FICA, health insurance and other employee related costs made automation cost effective.
I bet the Mozilla foundation would have been ecstatic if Google had gone ahead with it.

Like we said in that now-gone housing crisis thread; "We don't have a system to handle that." 

As a related aside, I'll add that I live in an area that is losing population to cities.  I'm taken aback by how many empty houses there are along the highways.  It's particularly ironic given the homeless & poor in the cities.
