    Apple aquires Shazam
    Maybe you dont use Shazam much or at all but I use it regularly. Maybe once a month, and this morning while listening to a live streaming radio station in Melb. Australia I was motivated to get the name of a tune that was playing and on opening Shazam I got a notification that Apple was acquiring this app. Luckily there is still a tiny button at the bottom to open the result in Spotify. I wonder for how much longer?
    I used to be conceited but now I'm perfect.

    I do not use it often, but I get the result immediately when I tested it. I did not receive such a notification. And yes, Apple acquired shazam in september.

    Just curious about Apple's Acquisitions over the years - 97 companies as quoted below (Source) - the more notable acquisitions include: 1) Shazam (2017), already noted; 2) Emagic (2002); 3) Siri (2010); 4) Beats Electronics (2014); 5) NeXT Inc. (1997); 6) Novauris (2013); and 7) PrimeSense (2013) - assume we will not have to wait long for Apple's next purchase - any guesses? Dave
