Apple, Microsoft may 'merge' in next 5-10 years says market analyst

Washington, Dec. 10 (ANI): Two of the biggest tech companies, and rivals, Apple and Microsoft might not only work together in the near future but also merge in the next 5-10 years, a market analyst has predicted.

Money Map Press' Keith Fitz-Gerald in his interview with Fox Business' Stuart Varney said that if one looks at what the world wants and what it needs, there is no option but to continue with technology and the tech market is going to be good in the near future.

While explaining his 'unthinkable but absolutely possible deal' between Apple and Microsoft theory, Fitz-Gerald said the two companies might see a merger because they have to take on the Google/Android and Facebook

He further explained that despite it being an absolute speculation, if one looks at what Apple wants to accomplish with its mobile market and Microsoft's initiative, there is a cross-polarization of devices.

Fitz-Gerald added that now content and security is king and having all the devices connected to one is the future, and according to him, apparently Apple and Microsoft fit the bill perfectly. (ANI)
