I don't get it Google is paying $1 Billion for a 5% stake in AOL. Does that mean AOL is worth $20 Billion. I have a hard time believing that. $1 Billion is a lot of money. Seems like way to much for what they get. It takes a while to make back $1 Billion. Isn't AOL going down the tubes. I'm sure MSN bailed on the deal becasue a lot of what Google is getting from AOL they already got. Remember MS is a huge company that dominates the world in other things. This whole search thing is just another toy for them. If MS just absorbed Google it would not even scratch the profits they make elsewhere.
