How can it possibly be worth that much?

Does it sling ads at people? Charge money for businesses to keep their code there?

Looks like Microsoft has found yet another way to throw away piles of cash on failed acquisitions. I'm sure glad Apple isn't so dumb as to be splashing out $7.5 billion on a company that's probably worth a tenth of that at best.
