Apple has agreed to acquire Siri, a mobile search specialist that produces the Siri Personal Assistant iPhone application.
The app allows users to search for locations and services through voice recognition, processing requests such as restaurant locations and taxi services through voice commands.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and neither company is stating any long-term plans. Siri board member Gary Morganthaler told V3.co.uk that the company views Apple as the perfect acquisition partner.
"It is a very good outcome for everyone involved," he said. "Siri has been an excellent opportunity in many regards, and I think it is just now being recognised."
