Google will buy Apple by 2011

I believe that Google will buy Apple by 2011 or before. I think this for several reasons. Apple’s multimedia minded strategy fits in well with Google’s long-term media strategy, it would give Google a place on the OS, Apple is affordable for Google, it would be a deal with lot’s of sizzle that Wall St. would most likely embrace, Apple does what it does well (multimedia and .mac’s, iPhone and iPods) and Google does what it does well (advertising, advertising and advertising, wireless spectrum maybe) and both business’s do not appreciably overlap and finally it’s a deal that just seems inevitable. If I only had enough coin to buy a lot of Apple stock and sit on it…(stock price today is 127 )
