I take it that the $30 million is mainly comprised of tangible assets (buildings, servers, etc), because the intangible assets of Myspace isn't worth anything.

Notice how there is no "Login with MySpace" buttons on any of the webpages you goto. Facebook beat them down way to hard. They originally killed themselves with the one thing that was cool, fully modifyable pages with basic scripts. It died because the servers were slow and everyones page was dishing up information for all over the place. It should have been kept simple. That's how facebook was successful and so was google.

What turned me off to MySpace was clicking on a person's profile and being bombarded with music and videos.

Also, the ads got so pushy and were all over the login screen. We get it, you want to make advertizing money but you didn't need it to be that pushy to gain clicks when you had all the traffic you could want. If they stripped it down to the bare bones to build back up and created a kickass mobile application for devices that utilize the music and humor aspects of the site then they may have a slow comeback. Without the cellphone sharing and posting market they are doomed.

What I wouldn't give to have the original MP3.com back.  It was a great way to find new, unsigned bands and artists the big record lables wouldn't give the time of day to.

Myspace is already losing out in the music sphere to bandcamp and soundcloud.

There won't be a myspace two years from now, if it even survives that long.
