Apple Buys Online Maps Maker Poly9
Apple continues its global domination (or at least, small tech companies) with the acquisition of Poly9, makers of online map apps including 3D views and mapping APIs. The formerly Quebec-based developer has now reportedly relocated most of its employees to Apple’s campus in Cupertino, CA. With this acquisition, will Apple ditch Google’s turn by turn directions/3D Earth software now? Probably, but we’ll have to wait a little while to see it.
