On January 26th, 1996, exactly 20 years ago to this day, early
tech blog Suck.com reported that Sun Microsystems was in talks to
buy up Apple, then worth $3.89 billion.
“Back in late 1995 early ‘96, when we were at our peak, we were
literally hours away from buying Apple for about $5 to $6 a
share,” former Sun President Ed Zander would later recall in 2011.
Today, Sun is out of business and Apple is the most profitable company in the world. Not sure where Michael Spindler is.
