This one's certainly got us scratching our heads. There's a rumour circulating in the halls of high finance that Advanced Micro Devices - AMD to most people - is up for sale. The news comes based on some significant rises in the company's share price over the last day or so.
However, the real kicker is who might be sniffing out the acquisition - it's Dell!
There's a lot of speculation regarding the recent departures of COO Robert Rivet and CEO Dirk Meyer. "There's no management team there," in the words of one analyst, so perhaps the time is ripe? Or maybe these guys saw the writing on the wall.
Regardless, even as a rumour it's big stuff, and the possible acquisition would be amongs the biggest changes to the industry landscape in, well, forever.
