Rumor: Apple to purchase The Walt Disney Company?

This rumour has floated around before and it seems to be back in the headlines...

What do you think of this possibility? I've always been convinced that Apple already makes the Magic Bands (they just seem very Apple-y). Apple tech combined with Disney media and creativity could be an interesting combo.

I'm not putting too much stock into this one. For every article that I have read that is "pro" I can easily find one that is "con."

It is also my impression that Apple produces the MagicBands, and there had been such a huge connection with Steve Jobs and Disney. I'm not sure how much of that still exists. While I'm sure that Apple would love to own the Disney content, I'm not so sure that they want to be in the travel business. That feels like a stretch to me.

Since I oppose all things apple (gimmie my Droid please) I guess I would have to give up Disney if it happened... waiting laugh

Ehhh honestly, I don't know. I agree with Kristin, I am sure they have the resources and the right people for the job but travel would be a new beast for them to tackle.
