On occasion I think how interesting it would be if certain companies acquired other companies. Here’s one I’ve thought about quite often.
I’m a big fan of The Iconfactory. I use Twitterrific every day, as well as xScope. Both are beautifully designed products and easy to use. I’ve been thinking for a very long time, Apple should acquire The Iconfactory. Not just for their products, for their design and engineering talent. I think they would have to discontinue many of their products, like Twitterrific, or find a buyer for them, but xScope could be given away as part of the Xcode development suite and they will have gained a great design and engineering team. One that gets Apple.
