    I can't believe someone bought it ... let alone for that much. I would have offered $35.

    Facebook should have bought the site. What's Tom up to, anyway?

    I just deleted my account two weeks or so ago. I forgot I had one.

    At least one person still believes in MySpace -- because Justin Timberlake just purchased a considerable stake in the sinking ship.

    Timberlake has not revealed how much he's invested in the company -- which News Corp. sold off today for somewhere between $30-40 million.

    According to the official announcement, Justin -- who starred in "The Social Network" -- will "play a major role in developing the creative direction and strategy for [MySpace] moving forward."

    They more than made their money back in advertising. Shortly after the purchase Google agreed to a $900 million advertising deal.
