I highly doubt it'll buy Sony(since Sony is 3 times higher in value), but I could see it buying Disney or EA.

wut, Apple dwarf Sony money wise, or don't i grasp what your getting at

financially, Disney dwarfs Sony and EA

they have about $50 billion in cash reserves, Disney may be out of there league even for Apple, but EA or even Sony seems feasible

Sony's total assests equal $137.694 billion and their current revenue is $77.205 billion.

Apple's total assests equal $47.50 billion and their current revenue is $42.91 billion.

There is a reason this is merely a rumor.

going by the market caps, Apple could easily buy Sony out hypothetically of course, and sell whatever assets off as needed, if they wern't financially viable for them to keep running, whether the shareholders would be willing to sell, is another question.. money talks however

and yes, its a rumour, an interesting one at that

Apple has a LOT of money now.. About a quarter of MS's current market value thanks to the App Store and iTunes.. They could take over Sony..

I seriously hope they don't, the Ps3 was dear enough, I don't want an iPs3 bumping up the prices of everything too >_<

Great.....
ps3 already had it's flaws. If Apple gain control over it, soon it may not even do what it's supposed to.

Sorry guys but this isn't going to happen, it was only the author of the article who mentioned Sony not Apple. It was merely speculation on his behalf as to what Apple may be thinking about acquiring in the future, that is all.

The only pro I would have seen to apple getting its hands on Sony would be the App Store integrated into the PSN Store.. Other than that, just no =P

I'm still waiting for Apple to fix the horribly flawed and broken program that is Itunes.
I mean, you cannot copy your ipod's data back to your computer, if you put something in a playlist, it duplicates the freaking song! It always seems to mess up the album artwork: some songs have the old artwork even if you updated it, its freaking slow and eventually lags up your computer, it fails to recognise about 50% of music file types, it always splits albums up, even if you have your music saved to your harddrive, it MUST have another copy of it within the itunes library, so double the amount of space on your harddrive is wasted, etc etc etc
I can actually go on forever. I detest itunes with a freaking passion.
