Apple Buys Book Recommendation Startup BookLamp

booklampApple has reportedly purchased the book recommendation engine BookLamp, in a deal whose terms were not disclosed.

Apple confirmed the acquisition to TechCrunch, stating: ”Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans.”

BookLamp.com did not confirm the acquisition, but left a thank you message for its community on the site. “As of today, though, the BookLamp.org site – which has served as a technology demo for the Book Genome Project – will no longer be available as our company evolves its mission.”

The Book Genome Project helps readers discover new books based on similar titles. If it is adopted into iBooks, the tool could help Apple’s eBook platform improve its recommendation experience.

Judge Not Satisfied With Apple eBook Settlement

doj304U.S. District Judge Denise Cote is not satisfied with the settlement that requires Apple to pay $450 million to  put an end to the eBook price fixing case.

Reuters has the scoop: “…she found ‘most troubling’ a clause requiring Apple to pay only $70 million if an appeals court reversed her finding that the company is liable for antitrust violations and sent it back to her for further proceedings.”

Apple was found guilty of eBook price fixing in July 2013. The company agreed to the settlement to avoid a trial after losing a number of appeals.
