Analyst Claims That Apple/Microsoft Merger Is “Absolutely Possible” Within Next Decade



‘Tis the season for speculative fiction, fa la la la la, la la la la.

In an interview with with Fox Business’ Stuart Varney, Money Map Press analyst Keith Fitz-Gerald predicted that not only might Apple and Microsoft want to work together in the near future, but that a merger in the next 5-10 years is entirely possible.

What would prompt this “unthinkable but absolutely possible deal”? Well, according to Fitz-Gerald the answer is the joint threat presented by both Google/Android and Facebook.

He went on to elaborate that — while this all absolute speculation on his part (you don’t say?) — if you examine what Apple wants to accomplish with its mobile market and Microsoft’s initiative, there is a cross-polarization of devices.

With both content and, increasingly, security being king — as well as the trend toward having all devices connected — an Apple and Microsoft merger would be the logical move for everyone.

Yeah, we’re still trying to figure this one out.
