Sony is done. Apple follows. Philips invents, Philips brought teh CD and DVD to Sony. AND Philips actually started Panasonic ELECTRONICS in the 50's, owned 35% of it for decades. Sold it in the 80's. Now Panasonic will own Sony! Things go round and round. Samsung is running high now, they too will crumble. GE, Philips, Siemens, started, created the world of electronics and electrical stuff, all others follow. Heck even Bell Labs folded, the 3 are still going strong.
