"Dow Jones Newswires sent several fake headlines shortly after the market opened for trading Tuesday because of a "technical error." The headlines included one that said Google was acquiring Apple for $9 billion."

More fakeness:

"DJ UPDATE: Google, Apple Join to Create Tech Giant"
"DJ Google to buy Apple for $9 billion"
"DJ Google Says Yay"
"DJ Google Says Steve Jobs Suggested this in His Will"


Whatever are we to believe? smiley-laughing001

Add a couple zeros and the amount would be in the ballpark. Doubt Google could swing that amount.

I'll take that deal. Pretty sure even I could line up other people's money for the $9 Billion.

I'm not that displeased w/ Android...

OTOH, trying to get Apple Mail to work properly is another story... and that's not as pretty.
