  1. Hmm. I dunno. Part of me wants to say it is another bubble when the likes of youtube gets bought out for $1 Billion. Granted, it is just stock. Still it reminds me of the Yahoo buyout of Broadcast.com

    Sure it is different this time around. Everyone is very conservative with their money (VCs, etc) – except the big players. They seem to buy without even thinking.

  3. I agree with Mary Jo. Advertising as a primary revenue model is lame. The “buy out” model only happens once every blue moon and it’s no better than trying to win the lottery. Take it from a winner, lightning doesn’t strike twice. You have to sell product, not pray and be lucky.

  5. Beer: lame? Really. Did you know how many billions are spent on advertising? Google seems to be doing JUST FINE THANK YOU VERY MUCH on advertising.

    Translation: your analysis is lame.
