for all Microsoft knows some kid is working on a Facebook killer in his parents basement and is read to walk all over Facebooks $15b valuation.

What applications/websites are you absolutely wedded to and can't imagine something coming along that is an improvement?

Yeah, but Plaxo doesn't have $750m in the bank. Moreover, it will be hard for a kid in a garage to best Facebook on features. After all 3/4 billion in cash generally beats ramen.

That said, Microsoft does look desperate. 1.6%. sheesh.
