    There was this pertinent sentence in the article:

    The loss of Jobs’s genius for products would mean Google’s innovation and Apple’s design and market sense would be a very good fit, although antitrust regulators might disagree.

    A merger of Google with Apple will NEVER happen. Not only will be European Union regulators be howling, but you'll get howls from Microsoft, Yahoo!, and possibly complaints to the World Trade Organization from the big web search portals in the non-Western world: Yandex in the Russian Federation and Baidu in China. And it will mean Google will have to split off Google Apps, Google Mail and Google Wave into a separate company, too.
