Curt Woodward, reporting for Xconomy:

Apple has assembled a small team of notable names in speech technology and is looking to expand those efforts in the Boston area, industry sources tell Xconomy.

(Via Ben Thompson, who quips, “So instead of acquiring Nuance, who has other customers and drives a hard bargain, Apple is just hollowing them out.”)
