Valleywag reported that Photobucket will be acquired by acquisition-hungry News Corp's MySpace.
We heard most recently from these two when MySpace wouldn't play nice and let the nice little Photobucket streams into the MySpace walled garden after several Photobucket streamers started placing video ads for the new "Superman 3" movie into their streams.
(Apparently, the advertising helped! At least in its own little way: Spidey 3 brought in a cool $148 million over the weekend.)
TechCrunch says the deal's for real. Matt Ingram says the deal makes sense.
Turbo's Take: If a picture's worth a thousand words, a full-on firehose stream of a few million of them has gotta be worth $250 million.
