Rumor: Apple considering buying Sony

Hopefully, Steve Jobs will regain his failing health and senses and not take Apple in a direction that doesn't make sense. Apple is itching to invest some of its capital assests to expand its distribution. But the company doesn't need to buy into the peripheral hardware market and move itself away from software development.

I'm not so sure, Wiley.

What if Apple has taken the i-Anything revolution as far as they can? Now, granted, the can make money developing software, but can they make enough from just that division to propel the company to the next level?

The rumor does, however, make me wonder which piece of Sony do they want? Don't forget, Sony is a big octopus with tentacles in a lot of different industries including TV production. JUST WHAT is that crafty Jobs after? :-k
