Google And thus, the fun continues. A few years ago, Apple bought PowerPC processor company PA Semi, whose technology, some claim, ended up in Apple's A4 processor. Some PA Semi people, however, left Apple shortly after the acquisition, opting to found a new start-up company instead. This company, Agnilux, has now been bought by Google.

start a company just to sell it. Reminds me of a "The Simpsons" episode where Homer starts an internet company. Bill Gates comes by and buys it even though he says he doesn't know what the company does.

Anyone want to buy my one-man shop?

although when Bill Gates states he's going to "buy him out" in means his muscle comes in to smash the company up. Simpson's Bill Gates "I didn't get rich by writing a lot of cheques" ;)
