Has Apple bought Delicious Library?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I am sure most of you are familiar with delicious library

However there has been a complete lack of news from them for a while now (the website hasn't been updated for ages, amd the last post in their blog was 15th June) however the is still activity on their forum

Does anyone else think there is a possibility that Apple has bought the program hence no updates, and no delicious library 2.0 yet as it will be part of iLife 07 in a couple of weeks? or is delicious library just dead?

If Apple bought anybody we would know about it. Besides, why Apple? Who's to say someone else didn't buy them.

Yes, they bought it and renamed it the Apple Golden Delicious Library.

That was Michaelm800 and he was the guy that handled the UI and icons.

delicious library just participated in some shareware software bundle deal that that caught some flak. The creator of DL did and interview and said there were a bunch of new features coming. One of which was that everything will be in a real relational database that you (or the developer) can do real database stuff with.

Absolutely not.

DL 2 will evidently be Leopard-only. Not much point talking it up when people couldn't even buy the OS, let alone the app. DL isn't exactly Coverflow.

With that being said, I don't think we will see DL2 for another six months.

why would we know if apple had bought them?
If I am not mistaken, no-one kew thaat apple had bought coverflow till after itunes 7 came out! Granted, Delicious Library is much bigger than coverflow, but as many have been waiting for DL 2 for so long now, and there have not been any updates, I just thought something like this might have happened.

Apple didn't buy them because as I posted above I just read an interview of the developer where he was talking about discounted sales of his software, which is not branded as apple software, which it would have to be if apple bought it, and also the next version that will be released, not as an apple branded software.

Coverflow was a seperate company
I just thought it was some cool idea they stuck in iTunes 7
Perhaps I'll start paying more attention to rumors sites like these around the time of a Keynote... 8)
Oh well, I still think it would be painfully obvious if Apple bought anybody

CoverFlow wasn't a company; it was a third-party program from a small independent developer. Apple bought the rights from him.

That was too bad btw.

The - no longer available - stand-alone version is much nicer than the iTunes implementation IMHO
