Shopping in the IT

Oracle buys BEA and Sun buys MySql.

In reply,Migrosoft is hungry and is watching Yahoo :-)

Any bets on the next money-based-news?

I'm going for

  • Oracle buys Sun: "We need more hardware to run Oracle and WebLogic together! "
  • Google buys Oracle: "We have *even* more hardware…come on!"
  • Apple buys Google: "So nice LOGO", retrodating a bunch of stock options, I suppose.
  • Microsoft buys Apple ("So annoied their are more cool then us!") and shut down all them all so you will end up using their search engine, I hope.

Surely Oracle needed a good application server to push its db.
Sun move seems  a bit strange in my humble opinion: anyway the big competitors in standard dominance (Sun,Oracle,MS) now have all the same stuff: broad used databases and application servers.

Even Apple has acquired FileMaker, pushing it with the "Bento" single-user-oriented db. 

Google has a different approach and a bit different market scope, so do not enter in the plan drafted here.

Sun move is very strange because MySql is not an "enterprise" stuff as in the Sun-way-of-life; normally Sun wants big software which need big computers, to buy at Sun Shop.

MySql should be acquired by Microsoft because of its very light footprint: but it sounds too much open source stuff for this move.
