Microsoft & Adobe Met To Discuss Apple, Possible Merger

Oh boy. And I thought that Apple will be supporting Flash in the next o.s. update. I am sure that I read an article about that. If so, then what is up with Microsoft meeting up with Adobe executives to discuss how the two companies might work together to take on Apple in the mobile industry, as well as a possible acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft.

One source indicates that representatives of the two companies discussed Apple’s refusal to support the viewing of Flash content on its mobile devices and how a partnership between the companies might offer them additional leverage against Apple’s gains in the sector.

A second source reveals that executives revisited the possibility of an acquisition of Adobe by Microsoft, a proposal that happened several years ago but got junked because it brought possible antitrust issues. But with Apple and Google’s growth in the mobile industry, the two companies think this may be the best time to do it.

And as usual, with that rumor floating around, Adobe’s stock did rise up. Nice work ;).
