According to an "unproven" source of Apple is in talks to buy bookseller Barnes & Noble. Another source said "It also almost makes too much sense for Apple to do this, said another source of ours, mentioning that Apple doesn’t make moves that appear logical to most outside observers at the time."

The acquisition would get Apple B&N’s digital books and other publications (which it might conceivably want) and Nook hardware (which it surely doesn’t), along with hundreds of retail outlets which it could either shutter or convert into Apple Stores.

Over the years rumors have swirled about Apple's acquisitions that never happened. From Universal Music to Hulu and Disney to Palm, all these have come to naught.
