Toshiba May Sell Sensor Business To Sony For Around $165 Million

The joke might have gotten old, but how does Sony find the money for this stuff?

Image sensors, which are used in digital cameras and smartphones, are part of Toshiba's system LSI semiconductor business. Toshiba plans to sell its image sensor manufacturing plant in Oita, southern Japan, and pull out of the sensor business altogether, said the sources, who declined to be identified.
