Philips acquires Meditronics

I have been 'on the road' and just catching up on email / RSS feeds. This news about Medtronics is 2 weeks since, I am curious to know if everyone else is getting that 6th sense "... we are living in what history may write as something big, though it occurs in realtime, sometimes it is like deja-vu, these current day 2008 events.. ??"

Interesting to see the consolidation of business as by product of world economic issues... Airlines in 1989, Banks in 90's..2008, Automakers since the 1970's, now there are medical hardware and software providers joining the rank and file... Things that make you go hmm...!
