Microsoft rumored to be in talks with Adobe for a possible buyout / merger

at 17:19 - 7th, October 2010
The entire premise is that it would be to combat google and mostly apple because of the iphone.

Adobe and Microsoft talking merger

personally i don't care if they form some kind of alliance to take on the iphone, just don't fuck with my mac and creative suite.


The New York Times reports that Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and other executives recently held a secret meeting with Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen to discuss a number of topics, including how the two companies might work together to take on Apple in the mobile industry, as well as a possible acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft.

Steven A. Ballmer, Microsoft's chief executive, recently showed up with a small entourage of deputies at Adobe's corporate offices in San Francisco to hold a secret meeting with Adobe's chief executive, Shantanu Narayen.

The meeting, which lasted over an hour, covered a number of topics, but one of the main thrusts of the discussion was Apple and its control of the mobile phone market and how the two companies could partner in the battle against Apple. A possible acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft were among the options.
One source indicates that representatives of the two companies discussed Apple's refusal to support the viewing of Flash content on its mobile devices and how a partnership between the companies might offer them additional leverage against Apple's gains in the sector.

A second source reveals that executives revisited the possibility of an acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft, a proposal that was briefly floated several years ago before being abandoned over fears that the merger would not pass muster under antitrust regulations. With the growth of Apple and Google, however, those concerns may be less now than they were at the time of the initial discussions.

Adobe's stock is currently up over 10% on the rumors of a Microsoft acquisition.

sure it's all rumors now but who knows where this could go.
I wonder if apple would even care at this point, they seem so focused on the ipad/iphone that news and dev on the mac products (the ones people should be caring about) has dropped off tremendously. It's almost as if Apple is moving away from computers and looking to become a mobile phone company.
