[QUOTE=tigger;1054623]I am predicting that Apple buys Netflix within the next 6 months…rumor on the street Apple is going to buy someone. Most talked about Sony, EA, Adobe, Disney/ABC, and Netflix. Their are only 2 in that list that make sense to me Adobe and Netflix. Adobe is my second choice because they have been making defensive movies with Microsoft. Adobe make sense because Apple needs the tools they produce (Photoshop, InDesign, Freehand, etc) but Netflix make better sense because of the business Apple is moving into.
Sony and Disney both would put them competition with other content providers limiting their offerings to either library. Also open them up to government scrutiny in the monopoly and non-competitiveness. EA would be the same…scare away third party game developers.
Apple is sitting on 51 billion dollars in cash and a brand new worlds larges server farm with top level internet connection. They just announced they are doubling its size…I call Netflix.[/QUOTE]
It’s talk like this that I fall back on my “I don’t understand a word, so I’ll smile and nod” defense.
