AAPL climbs

Apple's surge to a 52-week high today may be due in part to vague , and rose even higher today, to close at 26.74 (peaking at $27.49). The stock rose today amid persistent takeover speculation, with the purported suitor this time being consumer electronics giant Sony, analysts said. Since at least the mid-90s, Apple has been posited as a takeover target, with suggested bidders ranging from Sony to Sun. A strong response to its iPod mini has also helped drive Apple's stock higher -- Last month, Apple said it had received 100,000 pre-orders for the device.

    while they're at it

    And Sony should pick up Pixar while their at it. It all makes sense for Sony - Music, Movies and the iPod.

    Now if they let Steve Jobs run Sony, just think what we might see ...

    h*** no

    Take overs that produce mega overdiversified unfocused media/electronics/software conglomerates is exactly what is WRONG with corporate America. The day Sony takes over Apple is the day I might as well start using Windows.

    Re: This is the beginning

    This is the beginning of the end of Microsoft.

    Apple get together, kiss and makeup, and become fast friends.
    Disney decides it wasn't a wise decision to disconnect from Pixar.
    Pixar, Apple, Disney, Netflix and Sony work together to bring together the iStudio movie store, where you can download movies for $5. iStudio becomes a wild success. Microsoft's insecurity and lack of a successful music or movie store and lack of a Longhorn for 5 more years turns Microsoft a partner of Apple's in developing Mac OS XI.

    Not a good idea

    Only Apple can run Apple, if anyone else ran it it would have been gone in the mid to late 90's. Apple is climbing, this is going to take a long time, but they are in such a good position strategically right now.
