Coherent Navigations has iGPS resolutions is in the centimeters.
Look at this list of mapping acquisitions:        PlaceBase         Poly9    ***C3 Technologies    ***WiFiSlam        Locationary        HopStop        Embark        BroadMap    ***Coherent Navigations   3 companies ( Coherent Navigations, C3 Technologies, and WiFiSlam) really stand out to revolutionize core mapping data collection.  If Apple has a deal with Iridium to get access to the satellites, It could update the entire world map very accurately in a matter...
MS is up to no good.  No one wants to a TV strapped to their face all the time.  Their demo was completely impractical. The TV anywhere, anytime approach that Apple is taking with iPhone, iPad and AppleTV minimizes their risk and maximizes their profit.Most people would  not run out and buy an Apple LCD right now because they already have one or more. Samsung, Sony, Sharp, LG,  already make huge displays at very low margins.
Apple has already built 4 TV sets and a 5th set is on the way.   The sizes are 4.7", 5.5", 7.9", 9.7" respectively and a 13" is on the way.
Iridium constellation can offer Apple iGPS plus Voice and Data communications either via direct satellite connection or via an Iridium WiFi access point.  An Access Point antenna can be placed on top of a house / building or a car / bus / train / plane or be portable like the Iridium Go.   "The constellation will provide L-band data speeds of up to 1.5 Mbit/s and high-speed Ka-Band service of up to 8 Mbit/s.  Iridium is planning for the next-generation of satellites to...
I guess it's official. It has been added to the Wikipedia list of acquisitions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mergers_and_acquisitions_by_Apple Self driving cars may require high accuracy GPS. Heck, Apple might as well buy Iridium Communications while they are at it. It's market cap is less than a Billion USD, and they make some cool global WiFi devices on top of the global satellite network. These access points sell for about a thousand USD at Amazon. Imagine...
If Apple made an offer to pay back the investors for the Stanford-based engineering team, then they must have had a good team.  Obviously the product / idea sucked and it couldn't be released and Google rejected it.    Now that the team is broken up, forget it!  Duplan is screwed and deservingly so.  He cared only about himself and destroyed the team.  What a greedy clown of a leader!  He's going to lose some money and hopefully learn something about the value of a good team.
This is the reason why Apple is probably not interested in buying Nokia Here entirely.  They could always license parts of it. Here has a ton of good stuff but some of it may not be of the quality that Apple needs (like the street view and 3D stuff) and a lot of it will lose value as the OpenSource community catches up.   From WikiPedia... " In 2012, the launch of pricing for Google Maps led several prominent websites to switch from their service to OpenStreetMap and...
I know that they bought Novauris in 2013 to fine tune SIRI but I think they still partner with Nuance.http://www.cnet.com/news/apple-acquires-speech-recognition-firm-novauris-for-siri-help/ I also know Apple has a dedicated team in Boston focused on enhancing...
Uber appears to be shaking things up with an initial bid of $3B.   Consortiums sometimes fall apart when shaken up too much. Time will tell.
