Microsoft Trying to Buy Adobe

Microsoft Trying to Buy Adobe - CEO Microsoft, Steve Ballmer recently held a secret meeting with the chief executive of Adobe, Shantanu Narayen, to discuss how the two companies can join to fight Apple, and the possible purchase of the Flash developers.

Ballmer, flanked by a small army deputy, approached Adobe, according to sources familiar with the matter. The meeting lasted more than an hour, and covers topics related to the dominance of Apple in the mobile market, restrictions on the chief executive of Apple, Steve Jobs on Flash, and a possible partnership or acquisition directly from Adobe.

Redmond software giant Adobe has been seduced in the past. But the deal never came to the result, for fear that Microsoft faced antitrust charges from the U.S. Department of Justice. At that time, Microsoft is the dominant company in the technology, before Google and Apple gain a large share in the smartphone market.

Today, Microsoft has fallen far behind the two companies, though hoping to turn their luck with the new operating system launched its mobile, called Windows 7 Phone, due out next week.

The deal could be worth more than $ 15 billion based on Adobe's current stock price.
