    TUAW has a fascinating article pondering the completely unsubstantiated concept that Apple, with it's $51 Billion in cash might consider buying Facebook, valued at $25-30 Billion.

    I may trust Jobs more then I trust Mark.

    Now if Google bought out facebook, I'll be deleting my Facebook right away.

    Just because Zuckerberg and Jobs had dinner doesn't mean they are going to merge! I think Facebook has far bigger ambitions than to be acquired.

    Now that would be something! Although can't really see it happening.

    Partnership rather than merger would be better in this case I think. More innovation occurs when companies are independent. Apple needs to buy ARM. And control the mobile chipsets of the future.

    well, though I trust Jobs, but I don't believe Apple will buy Facebook, it's a company business, buy Facebook will cost Apple too much...
    aha, just wait and see it really happening.

    Well with that data center, something is going on.

    If Apple wants to buy out a social network, they should buy out Myspace, shut down everything but the music section and improve it- Apple style.
