Apple should buy Disney as it looks to capture greater adoption of its Vision Pro headset, one media analyst says.
Apple unveiled its new Vision Pro mixed reality headset at the company's WWDC event. It's $3,499 price tag however may turn off a lot of buyers. Laura Martin, Senior Media and Internet Analyst at Needham & Co., however, has an idea. Martin suggests that Apple (AAPL) should buy Disney (DIS) to help build adoption of the new headset. Martin argues that Apple needs "a compelling content storytelling use case" for the Vision Pro to gain traction. She believes that with Disney's content, more people may be willing to purchase the headset. But what about the Disney parks? Martin says Apple likely won't want the parks, but that those could be spun off or sold, given they are "really a good business, standalone." Martin also covers Warner Bros Discovery (WBD). When asked about the ousting of CNN CEO Chris Licht, Martin says investors are betting more on WBD leadership than who is leading CNN. She also makes the case for WBD keeping CNN in its portfolio. "The only way to win the streaming wars is you must have entertainment content, and you must have news, and you must have live sports," Martin says, because when news breaks, it drives viewers to your app. When it comes to the ongoing writers strike and a potential strike from SAG-AFTRA, Martin tells Yahoo Finance Live's Diane King Hall and Alexandra Canal that Wall Street investors will ultimately be the winners because "all of these companies are not going to be able to spend money on content and that won't be a competitive disadvantage."

When Ron DeSantis, Florida’s pugnacious governor and would-be Republican president, took against the mighty Walt Disney Company, it was seen as a high-profile test of America’s culture wars. DeSantis, who is on the conservative wing of his party, is eager to wage war on “woke”, as the Florida state legislature did last year by passing a contentious “Don’t Say Gay” law, which bars discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity at public schools. After criticism from the LGBT+ community as well as many of its own employees, Disney condemned the legislation and said it would reassess its political donations in Florida.

In some ways, the unpredictability of the experience, the complete surrender to the artist is the point of art — whether it is the worlds imagined by James Cameron in Avatar or simple strokes of a Picasso. Technology in itself independent of the artist does not really have intent. It’s a distinction at the crux of Chapter 3 — “Why Hollywood writers misunderstand the role of AI in content creation” — and it’s timely stuff.
