APPLE TO BUY UNIVERSAL?….The Los Angeles Times reports today that Apple is considering entering the music business by buying Universal Music Group for $6 billion. This is good news for Vivendi ? anything would be good news for Vivendi ? but I’d like to go on record right now as saying that if this goes through it will go down in history as one of the dumbest acquisitions ever made. And there’s some pretty stiff competition in that category.
