Found this - http://www.macformat.co.uk/page/macformat/20080201 - interesting break down of what one might buy with the proposed $44.6 billion Microsoft wants to use to buy Yahoo.

I think the last entry, three quarters of a Bill Gates, is mind numbing.

How about a Soviet Russia?

Or does Soviet Russia buy you?!

They must be out of their gord if they think ANYTHING is worth more than 44 Billion. They could retire every employee for life, 2 times over with that much money....

Sure, or the board could get a few billions each, then invest it to make even more money, while the little guys and gals are left toiling for the big corporate guys who don't even know their names. That is, if they are not laid off within six months... [thumbsdown] (Sorry, that's my cynicism talking - I have a hard time keeping it in check these days.)
