Little consumer-facing goodness has come from the acquisition in the brief time the two firms were locked in holy matrimony, but Good's new suitor -- fellow mobile email player Visto -- seems like a better fit for the company, and in all likelihood, they're picking it up at a fire-sale price on account of the down economy and Moto's many, many misfortunes.
