    Agreed lol. Idk I wouldn't have a problem with it. Apple is a great company. It's about time they branch out to games and receivers and bluray players

    i really hope this is false as it's bad enough with apples prices the now.

    You didnt have to click on the article so STFU.



    I wouldnt mind if Apple Bought Sony, Apple needs to get into the Game System Market.
    Did you read the Reuters link Messany provided? The article even states that it is purely speculation:

    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."
    There's no inside source or anything in this article. It is entirely hearsay and is by no means newsworthy. I clicked the link to read Messany's article on the notion that there could be reason for a serious discussion about it, but as usual I was sadly disappointed.

    If your sadly disappointed then why do you read the articles on MMI? Just o you can ***** about them ***** about them. I dont mean to be rude but I hate it when people ***** about things They DONT have to pay for.

    all rumors come from somewhere so who knows this could have a hint of truth in it, and everyone is trying to downplay it

    That just happened a couple of months ago. Last I checked though, the difference wasn't very significant, and they could easily switch places in a relatively short amount of time.

    But just in case those of you are wondering what this says... Here I'll translate for you..



    What Steve can speak Japanese? This is more than business. This is where I would be a huge cultural change, can be translated or Google wants to keep the other we are all doomed

    Yeah but they did that just from selling iphones, ipods and macs? Microsoft has probably sold more copies of Windows than all Apple products combined. And that's not considering all the other products Microsoft sells.

    At least it would mean people would finally get Blu-Ray drives in their macbooks etc. I can't see what Apple would want to do with a PS3 market though, hmmm.

    Moron.

    You just did the same thing I did.

    You are the type that make Apple fans look bad, just like the guy that wrote the "article".

    You can't really say that Apple is now a little bigger than MS generally. The one thing where Apple passed MS a little is the stock value but this doesn't really mean a lot in their business because it is more a symbolic number which shows how people who buy their stocks feel about the companies business these days and the near future.
    In "real" business MS turnover is still much higher than Apples.

    Maybe home sharing from itunes to ps3 and also... god i hope this would happen, you would be able to connect your iDevice to the ps3 through usb cable and then your music and videos could be played thorugh the ps3 to the tv and that would mean i wouldnt have to buy one of those stupid $50 composite cables and id be able to stream my iPhone media through the ps3 with hdmi at full 1080p!
