I would say it all depends on what you are looking for what is more  
valuable. There are other companies that do the same type of testing as 23andme  
but they cost far more and I'm not sure they offer anything more--although I  
can't speak from personal experience. 
As for 23andme, they won Time Magazine's top award last year as the  
invention of the year.
The work they are doing with the early onset breast cancer community (BRCA  
1 and 2 genes) and the Parkinson's community is invaluable.

That  TechCrunch article is surprisingly harsh on 23andme.  Seemingly the 
only  2 positive comments were with 23andme's genealogical benefits.  I 
wonder  which is more valuable to consumers, 23andme's physical traits results or 
 their ancestry/relationship finder  tools?
