What can Microsoft buy? (Hype vs. market value)

In Uncategorized on February 17, 2008 at 22:37

“For $44 billion, Microsoft could buy every Silicon Valley and Silicon Alley venture-backed start-up in existence. That includes Facebook at $15 billion. It includes Slide, RockYou, and every other elemental company.”

You think Microsoft is this boring dinosaur that might have some cash left and that’s the only thing why it still matters a bit. But if you realize they can buy all these startups with so much hype around them (“they are the future”), you realize that some cash is actually LOTS of cash. And what is it that money can’t buy these days?
