New Laws Needed

Obviously what we need are stringent consumer protection laws that absolutely ensure that the only thing that can happen after a company is acquired is that the company's business is carried on as usual for years and years thereafter as if nothing had happened. After all, it's not as if people buying computer products can always be aware that the company they're buying from is a potential acquisition target. Thus, this potential source of risk when making a purchasing decision needs to be totally eliminated, without any half-measures.
