Goople Uber Alles

If you read the two following stories in rapid succession...

I, Cringely: The Google Box: Taking over the digital world four ounces at a time

Think Secret: Road to Expo: Reborn Mac mini set to take over the living room

...you can't help but think, at least for a moment, Google + Apple = Goople.

The rumored new entertainment-centric Mac mini ('Kaleidoscope') is just a couple notches up from the 'Google Cube' which Cringely describes. An acquisition -- or at least deep partnership -- would fall somewhere in plausibility between the perennial Sony-Apple rumors and the 1996 "Sun + Apple = Snapple" speculation boomlet.

Alas, goople.com is already registered. :(
