The New IPhone Announced

Today at Macworld Expo Steve Jobs announced the long predicted iPhone. It looks cool and it has some excellent features. It also has built in Google search functions and runs Mac OS X. This made RJ point out that since they are starting to have some synergy, it might make sense for Apple and Google to merge into a mega hardware software company. If that happens, you can expect a couple of other things.
You would likely see a Dell or HP merger with Microsoft. It would not have the cool factor, but could have the same possiblity for cool integrated products. People discount both companies, but they have had their share of innovation and they know how to market products. They are just a bit more nerdy and square.

If Google and Apple merge, the new company would be called Hubris. They would need to also buy Hubris.com from Hubris Communications, but that would be a drop in the bucket if you look at what they spent on the aqusition of YouTube.com.

As I told RJ, the merger makes sense in some ways because both Apple and Google want to be our everything.
