Every week brings a new merger rumor, and just like celebrity couples (Bennifer! TomKat! Vive la diff rance!), every merger needs its portmanteau. So remember the official merger names:
- Google + Apple = Gapple, also Gpple
- Sun Microsystems + Apple = Snapple
- Yahoo + Google = Yahoogle
- Yahoo + eBay = Yahweh or Heeb
- Google + Microsoft = Googlesoft
- Google + Amazon = Googlezon
It helps to think of the prefix company as the "top" in the relationship, and the suffix company as the "bottom."
