Microsoft to Buy RIM? File Under *SNORT*

CrackBerry.com sends word that some analyst is thinking that if RIM's stock drops low enough, Microsoft will snap them up in a (presumably hostile) acquisition.

Didn't we hear this story a year ago? Don't RIM and Microsoft have fundamentally different philosophies about how push email should work? Don't you think that “Microsoft had no comment” can be read as “Psh! Right” instead of “OOOOH, they won't say no!”? Hasn't Microsoft repeatedly said they're not interested in making smartphone hardware?

Aren't you getting tired of idle speculation like this?

I would expect Palm to be a better target than RIM if we're purely speculating here.

Totally agreed. This is bloghype based on overimaginative financial analysts.
