    Ok, maybe its not for sale, but it looks like the New york times put a price of 1.5 Billion on it..

    Would this be a worthwhile purchase for Microsoft? I know they have their own Video thing, which next to no one has heard of, and me being a Microsoft developer can't even remember the name, doesn't expect anyone else to either...

    Or will Microsoft miss the boat, like they did with MySpace?  (Memory serves, NewsCorp (the parent company of the Fair-And-Balanced Fox News) bought it, and Microsoft lost out on the advertising there..

    How many more hits can Microsoft take before singing a swan song?
