Microsoft wants to pay $44 billion for Yahoo. That seemed like a lot of money to me until I heard that Mars is buying Wrigley for $23 billion.
The second-biggest Internet company is worth $44 billion, just twice the value of a chewing gum company. And to think that a candy bar company has a spare $23 billion laying around.
Puts the whole Internet thing into the small end of a perspective on what's really important in this world, don't it?
