    Well, at least you put "Rumor" in the title. Although, after reading the Reuters article "Bull****" would have been a more appropriate title.

    Lol.. this is complete BULL. Not gonna happen. Facebook, Disney, Adobe, Comcast even... maybe. Sony, no. Japan is not gonna sell off one of it's prized companies to an American company. Sony has so much debt too... the whole thing doesnt make sense. Its like Pocahontas marries John Smith all over again!

    Sony is publicly traded. I don't think the citizens of Japan have a say in the matter, but then I'm not too keen on the rules when buying a foreign company.

    But, if true this news is certainly disturbing. When one buys out the competition it's not good for the consumer.

    Default Never gonna happen...
    See this...

    Helping to spark the speculation was a Saturday report in Barron's that said cash-rich Apple could be contemplating a big acquisition and noted speculation about Adobe, Sony and Disney as potential targets.

    But even the author of the report, Eric Savitz, on Tuesday sought to clear up misconceptions about any potential combination of Apple and Sony.

    He wrote in a blog post on Barron's website, "In the piece I noted that the company could do something aggressive, like bidding for Adobe, Sony or even Disney. But that was pure speculation. Yeesh."

    The issue about Apple's acquisition plans gained steam earlier this month when, on conference call with investors and reporters, Chief Executive Steve Jobs was asked what the company would do with its $51 billion in cash.

    "We would like to continue to keep our powder dry, because we do feel that there are one or more strategic opportunities in the future," Jobs said.

    But analysts who follow technology downplayed the likelihood that Apple would chase Sony -- or any other major acquisition.

    "We don't see any acquisitions of any size," said Ashok Kumar, an analyst with Rodman & Renshaw in New York. "Apple is happy to keep its cash under the pillow."

    Kumar said a deal for Sony would be particularly unlikely. "It would be a cultural miss," he said.

    Sony spokeswoman Sue Tanaka said: "We cannot comment on rumors or speculation."

    The only good thing I could see in this is that Sony Ericsson would finally **** off!

    Another pointless article...
    There's posting news, then there's posting rumors, and then there's posting nonsense crap

    (by rumors I mean things Apple could do within logical reason and not pure fantasy)

    I don't think this is true. However if it is, I really think Apple should cool it's heels for a second. They're doing quite well right now, they don't need to acquire every freakin' thing

    you do realise that if Apple do acquire Sony that will mean all Sony devices will sky rocket in price because Apple don't sell anything on the cheap (even if it costs them less that $100 to build they charge $500)

    I really hope this is false as it's bad enough with Apples prices the now.
    Apple are Control freaks we need to stop them before they take over the world!!
