New Charity Buyout Candidate: Sony

See here. The author wonders out loud why Apple doesn't just buy Sony.

You betcha -- Apple is dying to buy Sony to get their hands on that advanced joystick technology. Does the writer work for Microsoft? Because buying Sony would be the fastest way to dilute Apple's focus and slow the innovation machine. Apple management isn't a bunch of whiplash sadists foaming at the mouth to experience the pain of Sony's culture. Yah, Mr. Pesek, you got that one right.

Love your comments on this. So many people seem to think that companies are like jigsaw puzzles -- you just buy one, snap it into place, and continue your merry way. To take an extreme example, why doesn't anyone remember Time-Warner and AOL anymore?
