It’s a rumor so big that it’s almost hard to fathom.

Perhaps that’s why so many analysts have dismissed the idea.

But Apple and Sony haven’t said a word. And some take their silence as an admission of something.

A headline gaining traction this week is talk of an acquisition of Sony by Apple. With more than $50 billion in cash on hand, Apple can afford the acquisition. But will it make an overture toward Sony to actually do so?

Barron’s was the first to suggest a possible buyout, talk that neatly aligns with the recent comments to Bloomberg by former Apple CEO John Sculley, suggesting that Steve Jobs is head-over-heels enamored with Sony.

During Apple’s recent earnings call, Jobs spoke up to boast of his company’s growth and to suggest that “big moves” were in store for the company, as Apple hopes to use it’s fiscal strength to make big plays in the tech world.

But it isn’t yet clear if one of those “big plays” will come in the form of Apple buying Sony.
