all these buyout rumors are a kick huh? pretty crazy stuff. i voted ibm buy moto. im not sure how likely this is but i think it would be the best thing for apple. moto wants out of the semiconductor biz. apple has been repeatedly let down by moto. ibm has always been there for apple and has developed the g3 faster than moto developed the g4. id love to see moto sell its semiconductor dept to ibm and have apple and ibm buy the appropriate patents to allow apple and ibm to start developing new ppc chips. it might also be nice to have apple pull in another chip builder to maintain the ever safe triumvirate.

Palm & Handspring

Apple could buy palm and handspring and then they would own the PDA industry since Apple made up the idea for a PDA in the first place. And then they could sell them under the name of Apple.
