On the scale of Microsoft acquisitions, Danger may be even bigger than it first appeared. While the companies did not disclose terms of the deal Monday, Om Malik "spent most of my day yesterday dialing-for-information, and have come up with the price from a fairly solid source": $500 million.
That's a lot.
I'm fishing for a confirmation of that price. So far, no one's biting.
Update, 2:20: From a company spokesman: "As of now, Microsoft is not disclosing the proposed transaction amount. The amount Om Malik has in his story is strictly based on rumor."
