    Apple products

    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- The head of Staples Inc. said the weak office-supply sector will ultimately consolidate, as the three large chains become "two or less," and he called troubled smaller rivals Office Depot Inc. and OfficeMax Inc. a "natural pairing."

    Ron Sargent, Staples chairman and chief executive, also lamented that its nearly 1,600 U.S. stores can't sell Apple Inc.'s popular products because Apple won't sell them to Staples. Apple products are sold at Staples stores in Canada and elsewhere internationally, where Apple has the need for Staples' distribution channel, and the executive expressed hope its U.S. stores would one day sell the iPad and other Apple wares.
