A Web site that specialized in product ratings and information. Founded in 1995 as Deja News, the site was initially created to archive and search Usenet discussions. In 1999, it rebranded itself as a product decision-making site with consumer opinions and reviews and product comparisons. In 2000, eBay's Half.com acquired the consumer service, and Google acquired the Usenet archive in 2001.
