A few minutes ago, someone dropped a comment onto a recent post:

Sony/Apple Merger. Hollywood is buzzing about it today.


Anyone hear anything about it?

Since the comment was actually more or less on-topic, I didn’t immediately delete it as spam. I posted my usual reply to Apple mega-merger rumors–Not Likely. Then I went and read the article at the site listed, and didn’t see anything particularly interesting. It’s just idle speculation.

A few minutes after that I was reading a similar post at MacSlash and noticed a very similar comment:

Apple/Sony Merger

Hollywood is buzzing about a pending merger with Sony and Apple today.


So, is this just semi-targeted blog spam, or is it some sort of weird astroturf campaign for 29hdnetwork.com?
