Acer / ECS looking to pick up Shuttle?

While this one may seem a tad out of left field, rumors are swirling that either Acer or Elitegroup Computer Systems could be fixing to pick Shuttle up if it decides to sell itself. According to an admittedly brief writeup at DigiTimes, ECS reportedly has a "good relationship with Shuttle," and is being named "by market sources as one of two potential buyers" with Acer being the second. Interestingly, "sources" at ECS purportedly insinuated that there "was no need to acquire Shuttle" in order to meet its strategic goals, and while spokespeople for Acer were tightlipped, it wouldn't be too far-fetched for the partnership-happy firm to ink yet another deal.
