A few weeks ago I was on the phone with someone, don't remember who, and we were saying, "Is QPass even in business anymore?"
Mystery now solved. The Company, which as you may recall used to power big content sites pay-by-the-drink sales and had hoped to power lots of other small payment stuff online, just closed tralaa, $10,700,000 in series B funding. However, their biz model is entirely different. Instead of helping the New York Times sell archived articles, QPass helps AT&T and Cingular Wireless sell
"advanced services and content" such as Wi-Fi to J2MET.
