    In the wake of Google's purchase of Youtube, who or what should Apple buy?

    Last I heard there was $10bn in the bank, which whilst earning the company a healthy return, could some of it be put to better use or is there a long term target once the funds are available?

    Thoughts...? ;)

    i think that they should buy whomever will make them a better computer and software company, as opposed to a better music and media distribution company. apple feels less and less about computers these days and more and more about iTunes/iPod. its great that stuff keeps them profitable and i would not want it to go away, but i would like to see more of a shift back to their computer hardware and software.

    I think Apple missed a trick when Adobe bought Macromedia. Imagine Apple owning Flash, Dreamweaver, Freehand etc.
