    Please be Facebook. Steve Jobs > Mark Zuckerberg [​IMG]

    EDIT: Wait, why is there also "Sony" in the title? [​IMG]
    I doubt Apple could REALLY buy over Sony.

    Just a minor aside but the apple buying ARM thing was rumoured a little while back and more importantly they are a chip designer/licenser rather than a chip maker/fabricator (or all in one shop) and while they are valuable the ROI would probably be quite a long time coming.
    Not to mention whatever teeth the monopolies, mergers and acquisitions type organisations/departments have left would probably be tested if apple gobbled up one of the main sources (albeit with the technical differences mentioned a few words back) of embedded devices which would not do much for any "competitive advantage" type buying.

    i am not surprised their mobile phones are way more advanced that what we have here, our mobile phones are primitive compared to theirs.

    For what Apple wants Sony? Sony is a part of the past, is not leading on any market nowadays.

    Not likely. Apple is all about taking money, not spending it.

    If it's sony, netflix, or facebook, that's great because i don't own anything apple related or anything related to those 3, so it doesn't effect me in any way [​IMG]

    Nice joke you made there.
    Wasn't someone already try to buy out Facebook?
