I was reading a serious advice from a market expert for Apple to buy Tesla. http://money.cnn.com/2013/10/28/technology/innovation/apple-tesla/

He thinks Apple needs new sources of revenue and phones are not that profitable anymore. Interesting idea but I think Sony buying Tesla is more interesting. Two companies are similar, they are both very innovative, they take big risks. They fight against established industries, Tesla fights all gas engine car makers, Sony fights Nikon and canon. If Sony buys Tesla and keeps innovating with Elon Musk, we could end up with great photo devices and automobiles at the same time which would be A win win case:)

No.  Lose-lose.  To put two money-losing companies together means more money-losing.

Have you bought a Tesla?  Have you ridden on its magic tube train from LA to SF?  Elon Musk would probably tell Sony to buy Lytro.
