    Default Apple Only Acquiring Color's Engineering Team


    It was previously reported by The Next Web that Apple was finalizing a deal to acquire Color Labs, the video streaming service and app founded by Bill Nguyen. The report stated that the deal had not been finalized but was likely to be inked. The folks over at AllThingsD now provide more info about the situation revealing that Apple is only acquiring Color’s 20-member engineering team for a much smaller sum than what was stated before.

    So what’s really happening? Apparently about 20 people, which consistent of almost the entire company, is being acquired at what Apple is calling a “nominal” price of something like $2 million to $5 million, according to multiple sources who claim to be familiar with both sides of the situation. This means that there are no “double-digit” millions involved according to many people who seem to be familiar with the deal.

    Apple doesn't seem to be buying Color’s technology, intellectual property, domain names or liabilities. All of these things are being left with the company, which still has a considerable amount of money (roughly $25 million) in the back. The Cupertino California company is reportedly bringing Color’s engineers on board to work on cloud-related projects. Both Apple and Color have not comments on the deal though.

    People like you make me sick. Yes there probably isn't a jailbreak going to be out soon for A5/A5X/A6 devices but then if the fact that you could (or thought you could) jailbreak your iPhone was your sole reason for getting one then why did you bother in the first place?

    Why would you allow Apple to "purchase" your engineers-your intellectual engine but not force them to acquire the company? Am I missing something here? This seems moronic. The company would seem to be worthless without them. How are they going to develop their products?

    he's not "expressing himself", he's attempting start an argument. Everyone knows that the best way to start an argument on an apple forum, is to insult apple products, then say that you're getting an droid... it goes both ways, some people do it on android forums as well. He did it to make the fanboy in all of us angry.

    Pretty sure Apple and their products insult themselves plenty. Point that fact out isn't what is insulting.
