Apple has recently acquired a personal assistant software app company called Cue, according to AppleInsider.  Cue was founded by Daniel Gross and Robby Walker. 

“Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans,” said Apple in a statement.  The price of the deal is believed to be around $40 million.

Cue is shutting down their service and is issuing refunds to paid customers.  Cue used to be a mobile search company called Greplin.  The company pivoted with a name change and shifted to a personal assistant service.
