We're all a little shaky in this scary post-YouTube-acquisition world, so tech site Treadwatch gives another crazy rumor some credence:
GOOG is looking at Facebook at a 2.3bil price. This could be a total joke on their part, but the source is solid.
It's scary 'cause it's possible — even if the rumored price is stupid. As a commenter notes, Yahoo is reportedly looking at Facebook for a much lower price. If Google made an offer over $2 billion, and threw in autonomy to boot (as it did with YouTube), that'd beat the pants off Yahoo, who might try to fuck up the branding. Founder Mark Zuckerberg and his investors would be morons not to pick Google.
