Apple to allow critical iPod component manf. to IPO?!

PortalPlayer’s Bid to Join iPod’s Party

I gotta say, I’m pretty surprised that Apple doesn’t see the opportunity in buying these guys on the cheap (they certainly have negotiating leverage)… or the threat if one of their competitors does. (Kinda like Google stealing Applied Semantics out from under Overture. Do No Evil ya’ll.)

There are alternative providers, but that means redesign (for the wrong reason).
