According to a story circulating the internet, Apple is weighing the option of buying Disney. For $200 billion.
“Recently, investors have increased their expectations that Apple could seriously consider acquiring Disney,” the report says.
Making it clear that Apple are open to “acquisitions of any size”
Disney, one of the few companies in the world that is as instantly recognizable and popular as Apple, makes for a compelling potential partner.
