    I hope not, because the products apple put out are sub-par.

    I'm not sure how people think ipods and iphones are the best of their class. It isn't even close.

    The brilliant run of Apple (AAPL) in market is continuing in full stake, this time it is the Microsoft (MSFT) who has been overwhelmed by Apple to become the most valuable techno company in world.

    But still Microsoft has much wider audience than Apple in international market..

    I would say not. If, for the sake of argument, one did take over the other then  the operating system belonging to the company taken over would disappear. This would probably contravene monopoly laws as: Linux aside, it would only leave one choice for consumers.

    When? Presently, apple's balance sheet is worth 65 billion on the asset metric. Microsoft has assets worth over 91 billion. You do the math. The second company is far more mammoth and stable. This takeover is not feasible financially, and the two companies position themselves as competitors of sorts. What could apple do with a business that has stagnated and stabilized in a slow growth trend? What would apple want with microsoft when it has positioned itself as the fresh, innovative leader compared to microsoft, which is bureaucratic?

    No at all it's my belief not belief it's truth apple can never takeover microsoft.See microsoft is since so many years and the products of microsoft and apple are different apple is famous for ipods,iphones but there is a small bit of chance to overcome because even though apple is the latest one but nowadays we all know the crazy about apple products.I think nobody can conclude this point because both are different and mainly they differ in their products.
