Hmm VERY interesting! I put you on my watch list......
I JUST DONT GET THE MYSTERY AUCTIONS!!!
LOL, I hope some day in the future the "mystery" to the mystery auctions is revealed! I just dont get it..........if you have something that is worth that much, why not sell it for that much? How do you "give" away something that is worth so much for much less?
It really depends on how much the auction goes for. And to answer the question about the how can some one sell something for so much less? Well here is one reason some people do it. If Microsoft earns millions a year and is going to be eaten up with taxes they must find a way to offset the earnings. This way they can show a loss in some places and offset some of the profit. This is an example of how some might go about this!!
