Both the companies are yet to release an official statement and not surprisingly there s no word on how much the deal is worth. Apple on its part has released its standard line: Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.
Embark is a mapping service that offers real-time information on public transportation. This is something that is missing in the current version of the maps and would be a great addition.
