Almost surely not...it just means there are no stock options etc exchanged, just digits moved from one bank account to another.

A cubic yard (roughly a cubic meter) of stacked $100s (think of a typical pallet) is $100M. You will need 260 of those pallets to make up $26B would be (in a ballpark).

Transfering those pallets in single stacking, in armor trucks, would need a convoy of about 45 Tracks (assuming 6 pallets per truck, that's actually generous).

Can I get a confirmation that I am really good at? Also, it may actually be time to get linked out. I like Windows 10 but I don't need Microsoft in ever facet of my life. I have Google to fill in the other gaps rolleyes.gif

Why would they spend 26.2 billion dollars on linkedin when they could spend a few million and get all of the account information and passwords anyways. OH SNAP!

M$ is totally satellized and they don't know the real price of things, totally ridiculous.

Seriously, what worst thing could happen? Are they going to turned it into Facebook?

 

It's already turned into Facebook. I see nothing except "new connections" and people who post motivational garbage akin to their Facebook updates. That, and a slew of political ****.

There is plenty of people looking for likes for their struggle in promoting SJW behaviors/ideologies as well.

I hardly see anything of worth from LinkedIn of late, though I do use it for communication with colleagues at times.

No suitcases full of bills, sorry.
