There's a few weird stories here. First, Variety predicts that Apple will buy Sony. I've brought this up before, and while it is just a prediction, there seems to be some basis for this, with both Tamara Hunter and Justin Lin moving from Sony to Apple. It may just be a coincidence, but all of the pieces seem too convenient to believe it's just that. I could see Apple hiring some of these personnel so that Sony Pictures would be gradually eased into Apple.
