CWEB.com – A person close to Apple told the Financial Times that the company is still in the market to buy a media company and with $233 billion in cash and other securities there are very few companies which are out of its reach – including Time Warner which has a market capitalization of $80 billion.
Netflix, which has a market capitalization of $48 billion, has long been a popular suggestion by analysts for a media company Apple should buy. However buying Time Warner would seem like a better fit, giving Apple a presence in TV and film production as well as cable television – allowing them to offer all these services directly to consumers through iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and its Apple TV set-top box. The proposal did not advance beyond a preliminary stage and discussions did not include Apple CEO Tim Cook or Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes.
