Today's Acquisition Rumors: Cisco Buys Nintendo and Google Buys Napster

Today two interesting rumors about company acquisitions appeared.

Based on an article in the The New York Post, Google is interested to buy Napster. Google of course denied this rumor, but Napster’s stock surged - go figure.

Cisco buying Nintendo sounds rather far fetched. CNet has an report considering it. The argument is that Microsoft has already a gaming platform and gaming is a great application for broadband. CNET also mentions TiVo and Slingmedia in the same report. Slingmedia just secured $46 million in additional funding today. I do not think they will want to sell anytime soon.
