Report: Sumner Redstone 'Talks' Via iPad

Sumner Redstone
Media mogul Sumner Redstone, who maintains voting control over CBS and Viacom, has resorted to communicating through an iPad preloaded with audio clips of his voice saying "yes," "no" and "f--- you."

The ailing 94-year-old is currently caught in the middle of merger talks between the two companies, with CBS close to making an all-stock offer for Viacom.

CNBC Reports if there is a merger agreement, Redstone will likely communicate his thoughts through a combination of curt yes-or-no verbal answers backed up by the recorded responses stored on his iPad, some people who recently have met with him told The Wall Street Journal.

National Amusements did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.
