Recent examples of big-time mergers include the proposed AT&T-T-Mobile deal and Microsoft's acquisition of Skype. Network World takes a look at seven proposed mergers involving the likes of Google, Microsoft and Angry Birds maker Rovio that we hope will never see the light of day, as their consummation would likely mean the end of the entire tech industry and possibly even the entire world.
