Microsoft buys LinkedIn for $26.2B  
That was unexpected and I even thought it is a joke. But it is not a joke.

Why would Microsoft buy the largest job board?
Microsoft is in a different business.

1) What a terrible time to be burning that much cash, just before the next recession, and on a resume site. I was starting to see some good things coming from Microsoft but this makes me shake my head and question leadership big time.

2) I suspect major LinkedIn investors shopped around the company and financial-engineered a sophisticated kickback

Yes. The cash itself is not the market cap.
