What's happening?

Can somebody explain the current activities in the computer industry to me?

I mean, within the last 48 hours I have seen like 8 take-over news....

First it was announced, that Yahoo has bought Flickr...
Also yesterday, Ask Jeeves was sold for the crazy amount of nearly 2 billion US-Dollars.
Then Pinnacle was sold to Avid and Oracle bought Retek.
Today it was announced (the most crazy news IMO), that U2-leadsinger Bono wants to buy Eidos.
The german internet bookseller takes over austrias number 4 in the market.
HP then bought Snapfisch and finally United Internet buys Affilinet and wants to take over Web.de.....

All this happend within 48 hours.... Come on, you CEO-Guys!! Take it easy!!

So, I'm now taking bets..... Who do you think will be bought next by whom?
