    AAPL to BUY YAHOO, here are the reasons why...

    1. AAPL is a hardware company. Being a hardware company, they are susceptible to margin compression overtime as competitors are easily able to provide comparable product. Also as a hardware company, it is very difficult to hit a home run product or susceptible to lack of product innovation. Thus, AAPL need to diversify their revenue stream.

    2. APPL has many users now that they just need to leverage these millions users. With the many apple product out there including the upcoming AAPL TV, they will need to provide exclusive "content" or provide these "captured" million users or ecosystem automatic service product such as search, sports, entertainment, interests, mail, etc. AAPL buying YHOO accomplish these.

    We can visualize using our AAPL iphones, ipad or itv with AAPL providing whatever information or product we need via YHOO. Need search? YHOO has that; need sports info? YHOO has that; need finance info? YHOO has that; need news? Yhoo has that; need mail? Yhoo has that, etc. etc.

    3. Also, AAPL will need to compete with GOOG overtime.
