What would happen if Microsoft bought Apple?

What would happen if say either Apple or Google bought the other (imaginary situation)?

What would the world do if aliens tried to contact humans?

Thanks for A2A.Read this article: 1952 Washington, D.C. UFO incident.This is not conspiracy nutter material.

What would happen if America declared war on Islam?

Ronald Reagan liked to say, "We fought the War on Poverty, and poverty won," but I'd simply point out that poverty is still with us fifty years later.

We wouldn't notice any change initially, but I seem to recall hearing that the placements of the planets are not random - their orbits are in some sense resonant with each other in ways that are now stable; removing one

What would happen if the world decided to become a free market tomorrow?

There are no free markets and I am not sure there ever was one.

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow and you were poor?

I of course would be sad. And scared. I would maybe cry.But I wouldn't give up on life. There might be some hard times I would face, but I would hopefully get through them.Poverty is something that pains me to think about since so many people are experiencing it. And if I experienced it, I have no idea what

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow morning with nothing?

I would start fresh because I have a good starting point where in my teen years I did in fact have nothing and no one to turn to, so I used my strong points and began working I thought to myself what am I good at that can get some work.

What is the purpose of mosquitoes and what would happen if mosquitoes went extinct? Would any ecosystems or the food chain be drastically affected if mosquitoes became extinct suddenly?

A. It's not possible in the farthest of our projections. Because they multiply much faster than we can kill them.B. Even if achieve this, it will come at a cost of human survival. Because of the large numbers covering a vast landmass.Point is, they become a menace only

What would happen if all technology were open source?

Life would've gotten significantly worse. Opensource means fifty thousand forks of every software, with small modifications, of varying quality, and overlapping functionality, poor documentation, half-baked functionality and bad ui.
