With the recent merge of Dell and EMC, and Western Digital acquiring SanDisk, I wonder what other mergers or acquisitions may happen in the technology world, and this thread is to discuss such potential occurrences.
I am a great fan of Creative Labs, for their amazing audio products, but they are not a major presence in the technology industry, and, as such, do not have the largest of budgets. I think that an acquisition by Samsung would be very awesome, since both countries are headquartered in southeast Asia, and it would be beneficial to both of them, giving Samsung a greater variety among its products and giving Creative access to a larger budget and greater fabrication plants.
I also am a great fan of AMD, so I would rather not see them merge with or be acquired by another company, but, if they were to merge or be acquired, I would prefer that it be with Samsung, because I also am fond of that company. Samsung's solid-state drives are among the best in the world, and the idea of AMD's processors being produced by the same company does hold great appeal for me.
What does everyone else say about this? What are some mergers or acquisitions that you would like to see happen in the world of technology?
