    Ryan Ozawa and Burt Lum joined Dan Cooke for this edition of Geek Beat. Is the Snapchat Initial Public Offering really worth $25 billion? That would be two times bigger than Facebook's IPO and 4 times the size of Google's when it went public. Snapchat argues that its sales increased 600% last year, but it also lost more than $500 million. It has yet to turn a profit, but it's a hugely popular app.
