Wall Street thinks that Apple ITunes and Google are getting together….are they right?

Now this seems like a crazy rumor to me. What exactly is the benefit either side would get from such a partnership? It seems to me that iTunes is running quite smoothly these days so what could Google offer Apple that they don’t already have? The one thing that comes to mind is Google’s new video service, but iTunes doesn’t support video stuff yet, although I bet it will once when Apple finally releases a portable video pod (vpod? avpod?) in the next couple years. Anyone else have any good ideas as to why they would get together? Doesn’t look like John Gruber at Daring Fireball has anything to say about this rumor yet.
