Add Barnes & Noble to the long list of rumored Apple takeovers that never happen. I add my thoughts to Harry McCracken's excellent history.
Few rumored Apple acquisitions come to fruitions--and there's a good reasons. The rumored Barnes & Noble deal won't happen either.

Though it means I now have the second-best beard on the team by a huge margin, I'm thrilled to have Jim join us.

I wonder why Aaron Swartz chose MIT's networks for JSTORs downloads (other than MIT's seemingly unlimited access.) As a matter of policy, MIT, like most universities, keeps its network fairly open with liberal guest access. But MIT students are formidable adversaries with skills and attitudes (it's a place where students once a mass synchronized toilet flushing that dropped the pressure below the level needed to reset the valves.) Hacking, in all its ramifications, is a major point of pride among students. So the infosec people have to be very good just to keep things running. But another part of the MIT culture is a clear understanding of what lines are not to be crossed and that crossing them will force official action. Swartz doesn't seem to have understood that and he had the disadvantage of not being a member of the MIT community (far worse, he was from Harvard.) By the way, I am not assuming Swartz' guilt; he seems to admit the downloads and the legal argument will be over what if any laws he broke in the process.
