Many Say Apple Buys Placebase

The San Jose Business Journal has the story. And, Caitlin at GISLounge cites the path of discovery. I knew Placebase was gone and I knew Jaron Waldman was at Apple.  But I’ve still not seen confirmation from Apple that this true and have contacted the company for confirmation.

If true, this is pretty cool - I was a big fan of Placebase. (1, 2, 3) Does this mean Apple will have its own in-house mapping apps for all its devices? And for developers to use?
