Short Take: BigWords.com left speechless

Online textbook store BigWords.com closed shop Oct. 20, according to its Web site. Backed by NBC, 21st Century Internet Venture and Attractor Investor Management, BigWords raised more than $60 million in funding, including $30 million in third-round funding in January. The San Francisco-based company said it would cancel all pending orders and would not charge customers' credit cards. Company representatives did not return calls seeking comment.
