Apple co-founder Steve “Woz” Wozniak says in an video interview that Apple has bought Nuance, a voice recognition company, reports “mocoNews” (http://moconews.net/article/419-is-apple-buying-nuance-a-mystery-wrapped-in-a-wozniak-Video/).
“I think voice recognition is going to become, more and more, a part of these machines,” he says in the interview with Romil Patel, founder of TVDeck.com. “Apple’s probably thinking the same way. They recently bought the company Nuance.”
“mocoNews” says such an acquisition could make sense. “Apple, which has a $50 billion warchest, has been investing in companies that help extend its smartphone functionality, as it faces increasing competition from the likes of Google/Android, Microsoft and Symbian,” the article says.
