    This whole facebook/web 2.0 bubble is going to pop eventually. How much as instagram generated in revenue? A whole zero dollars? Yet the company is valued more than the New York Times? Give me a break.

    Unfortunately, as we both know, value isn't dependent on how much a company actually makes.....otherwise Apple, Facebook, Google, etc wouldn't be worth anywhere near what they're valued at....

    "I understand Instagram has 13 employees - so at $77m a head that makes it the most expensive business deal in history that I can think of."

    Someone did well in the deal! Let's hope the employees all owned shares.

    I personally can't see the point in an App that makes your photos look ****, but whatever.

    Apple has not made $500 billion dollars.....their net worth (just over 1/2 trillion USD) is based on their stock. Apple actually has less in cash than Bill Gates spent last year.....at least according to the last article I read on Apple's market value.

    Google is in the same position. Their stock is valued higher than the balance of their bank account.

    Will any Samsung Galaxy 4S owners be able to do this with their super AMOLED screens?
