This chart will blow your mind!

Famous tech acquisitions  cost per user
Famous tech acquisitions by cost per user

This crazy cost chart was first found on BrightSide. As you can see by the chart the new acquisition of WhatsApp for the mind boggling price of $19 Billion dollars on a per user price actually looks like a great deal.

The WhatsApp acquisition at a per user price of $35.56 is very inline with Facebook’s other big acquisition of Instagram which when acquired had a per user cost of $28.57. The Instagram deal has turned out to be a major success for Facebook and it looks like so will this WhatsApp purchase. For a lesson in companies who are doing horrible acquisitions just look at Yahoo. Whose acquisitions of Broadcast.com and Geocities on a per user basis were horribly over priced and have done horribly.

As we have discussed in other articles having a job as a cashier at a store is not glamorous and at times can be downright boring. One of the best ways we have found to pass the time and to possibly make more money is by being on the look out for old coins. Also check if it is ok with your manager first but often times they will just be happy to know their employee is actively looking at every coin while on the job and being good with money is definitely a skill they want to make sure your have as a cashier. Whenever you see a coin that is old or a bill that is old hold on to it might be worth more than “face value.”

Old quarters such as those made prior to 1965 are actually made of silver and as such have a value of the price of silver not the $.25 that the coin is really worth.
