While some argue for Apple (AAPL) to be taken private, Conor Sen thinks it's time for the company to take its cash pile ($60B and growing every day) and buy Disney (DIS) - a response to hardware markets that can't help but become commoditized, and a move further into the "intersection of computing, communications, and media delivery."

    That would be an interesting takeover. It would take some serious negotiations to get that done.

    and what would be the intended advantage to both? Apple Land with ipads guiding you through a internet treasure hunt?

     

    Funny thought!

    It's very interesting that some analysts are so knowledgeable about the best way for a company to spend its money. Reminds me of our politicians.

    When the technology emerges for successful wireless and eyeglassless 3D movie hardware and software to be sold for home viewing Apple will be there and Disney will own the most exciting 3D product in the form of Pixar and Marvel. It is a natural union that will occur soon. I can't wait to see Jobs' contribution to the new adult Disney park being built in Walt Disney World, Florida right now.
