There's two ways to look at this

One is how you seem to see it. The other is how I see it.

Contrary to your point, I think it would in fact be a very big positive. If it meant better optimised drivers for users with Nvidia cards, it means ATI/AMD finally need to get their finger out of their ass and start making decent drivers.

I know their drivers have been getting a bit better lately but they still pale in comparison to Nvidia's drivers. One of my clansmen is an avid ATI fanboi and said to me he prefers ATI/AMD drivers because they are updated each month, where as Nvidia is kind of random (You might get 2 drivers in one month and then none for the next 3 months)

But as I said to him, I would rather take drivers that are much better optimised and stable and only update them, let say every 2 months on average. Than have new, half-assed drivers each month just for the sake of releasing a driver. Because that usually involves corners being cut to make sure they get a driver out in time.

So if this deal did go ahead, as far as I am concerned, it will force AMD's hand and make them put more effort and money into their driver support. Where as, atm, their drivers do not compare with Nvidia in terms of quality (This is a fact, there's no point trying to deny it ATI/AMD fanboi's)

Right now no one can buy apple. Financially they are the most valuable company on the stock market. It's whack too because they don't pay out as much dividend as other companies but the people with bulk amounts of their stock Just are not selling. So the price is staying at inflated levels.


For Example
Currently Apples total stock value is $316 Billion US. For someone to start buying them out they would have to spend $47 billion. That would get them to the 15% mark and trigger FCC paperwork. One of the largest companies in the world General Electric is only stock value of $199 billion. Wal-Mart stock value is only $187 billion. Microsoft is currently worth 201 billion. So the stock they have available to try to buy out Apple is smaller than Apple. If they tried to take over apple using only stock and Apple decided to protect themselves Apple would win unless Microsoft could come up with around $100 billion in cash/assets to offset the stock value difference.

In theory about the only companies that could possibly buy out Apple without comming up with 100's of billions in cash and assets could be Texico as they are privately held but pay more taxes than anyone. Other than that the buyout would have to come from an offshore investor.
