    actually, on second thoughts the price would quadruple

    Re: News - Samsung and others reportedly in talks to acquire Nuance

    I've thought Nuance were suffering for a while - they seem to be doing more sales than those sofa stores you see on the TV!

    Talk about the devil and the deep blue though - mugged by Apple or absorbed by the Samsung collective. IMHO either is a whole load of bad news.

    What would be hilarious though - given that both Apple and Samsung both need it - would be if those two giants of the smartphone world came together to buy Nuance. Sort of technical Mutually Assured Destruction.

    BTW, maybe I'm just being homophobic but is that watch image criticising Samsung's mobile tech line?

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Old-timers like me remember registering for Nuance's first big product: Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
