OK, I know I'm late reading this article I saw today at MacMinute. Was posted Dec 24th.<br>http://www.macminute.com/2003/12/24/motorola<br> It's from an article by Paul La Monica of CNN/Money, who thinks it's a good idea if Motorola would buy Apple.<br> http://money.cnn.com/2003/12/23/technology/techinvestor/lamonica/<br>This has got to be the most idiotic suggestion I've ever heard in my life. And, since I can't post my opinion at CNN/Money, I'm doing it here. Apple would be dead & buried within 3 years if Motorola had anything to do with the company. I've had the misfortune of having to do business with them (Moto) for years, and I'm continuously amazed at their capability for stupidity. And I guess that goes for Paul La Monica too.<br><br>
I saw that article too and found it hard to believe anyone would think that would be a good thing for Apple after the processor debacles of the past. Apple did a good thing by jumping to IBM and getting rid of Motorola once and for all. <br><br>

Moto couldn't afford to buy Apple. It's financial future is in question and is even considering spinning off it's processor division. Nothing like trimming off the dead wood.<br><br><br><br>"640K ought to be enough for anybody." - Bill Gates
Not only could Moto not even dream of having enough money to buy Apple, but they wouldn't know what to do with it if they could.<br><br>Of all the rumored and suggested buyout of Apple stories, the only one that would make ANY sense at all would be Sony.<br><br><br>Visit My Web Site!
