Really?  Why?At least Larry Page made the world a better place.  I use Google everyday and I think I'm more knowledgable and effective as a human being because of it. In contrast, fanatic users of Facebook are often worse people because of their Facebook habit.  
$15B in stock might be big enough to move the needle even if all of it were restricted (which its not).The more fundamental question is "how does FB get a return on investment?"   Someone suggested WhatsApp is a threat.  I don't use WhatsApp, but I'm not seeing how its a threat to FB. 
I don't see this purchase as any indication of something wrong in the overall market.  This is just a stupid move by Zuckerberg.  He thinks because he rolled the dice once and got lucky with Instagram that the same thing is going to happen this time.  He's an idiot. $16B is a lot more than $1B and instant messaging isn't as core to the FB business as social networking photos. Also, these users are in low value places in the world.  It is one thing to pay $1B for US user...
You are sorely mistaken that Apple is in a prestige market. Apple sells quality, but not prestige. If a McDonald's employee is buying the product (which they are) then it isn't a prestige product.Can anyone give me the patent number of this Google patent that expires in 2020?
PC sales are slowing, but do you have data to show that PC usage is declining? Google ad revenue is growing 37%. Your assumptions don't fit the data.
They should launch from a different country like an island country or Russia. Why ask for permission?
LOL, nice comparison to TV stations.This would be a great way to distribute media content to the world. Multicast TV and Movies with encryption and then just charge for the key. If the distribution is to a country like North Korea, you don't even have to worry about copyrights.
yes, agreed.  They obviously knew mobile was going to be successful. Steve Jobs made bold statements about it. Someone deserves a kick in the pants for doing nothing about the mobile strategy for pages over the last 5 years. 
ummmm, "fucked" is a six letter word. LOL, learn to count. You missed the point. I'm saying creating pictures, emails, etc. is worthy content creation.  Just because I create different content doesn't mean I'm not creating content.  To keep with your analogy, you are saying that a semi isn't a vehicle because it can't dump like a dump truck.  I'm calling BS on that assumption.  A semi is a vehicle even though it can't dump. An iPhone is computer even if it can't do Word...
Agreed, in other words, they should have left the Mac version alone until the iOS version had feature parity.  What they really need to do is kick the development into high gear and produce a better product than MS.  That would be a good use of some portion of that $159 billion.  What's the problem Apple?  Can't afford to develop the iWork platform?
