Apple acquires web-based mapping company Poly9

apple-logo21

A report in the Wednesday edition of the French Canadian news site cyberpresse.ca suggests that Apple has acquired Poly9, a Canadian company that develops a web-based mapping program. According to the report, Poly9 has shuttered its Canadian office and pulled down its website. All of Poly9’s employees have been relocated to Apple’s Cupertino campus and are forbidden to speak of the deal due to confidentiality agreements that were presumably signed as part of the acquisition. Apple has not officially commented on the acquistion so we will have to wait and wonder what the Cupertino company is planning to do with the second mapping company it has taken under its wing. Any thoughts?
