How much is it worth?

I recently posted in another thread that Google will become corrupt, not if, but when. So I am wondering how much they are worth and how much it would cost to buy them? My hypothesis is that they will become corrupt after they are acquired. So, once again, not if, but when will they be acquired. I suspect either AOL, Verisign, or Microsoft will acquire them.

Mapquest sold for 1+ Billion. Hot Jobs sold for 1+ Billion. Home Grocer sold for 1+ Billion.

So I figure Google worth about 10 times one of these companies… So I would say Google is worth 10+ Billion. That rules out Verisign from buying them. But AOL and Microsoft are still left. Microsoft has the money but I don’t think they see the value in it. So, I nominate AOL as the new parent company of Google.

And like I said, I don’t think Google will sell before the IPO, but look for the announcement of AOL acquiring Google (GGLE) 1 or 2 years after the IPO.

Anyone else care to speculate on Google’s fate?
