Viper, its really great to know you have ALL THE INFORMATION
Im not the only one who thinks it makes sense for Google to buy T-Mobile. Its a genius strategy. Esp now that they own a manufacturer, they can become even more profitable and have more control on the product. They will have to make it exclusive because of antitrust reasons and other carriers will gripe because Google will give themselves the best phones so Android would have to be exclusive. It would be the only company in the world of its type and Google already thinks they can do "it" (whatever it is) better than anyone else (because they can).
It would be an enormous operation but it would recoup its investment (from cell provider profits in 5 years, ad revenue increases due to more traffic, and better ways of delivering advertising to consumers) in about 6-8 years. Google is all tech based and wants to be relevant in every arena in which they invest.
As for Apple, see above. The same principle applies.
So Viper, it seems like you want the merger to go through more than anything. Not gonna happen. And you cant just "sell off" 45% of Verizon. C'mon man.
