SpinVox dead, Nuance rumoured to be taking control

Well we can almost rest easy.

SpinVox — the world’s most ridiculous company — is dead.

Well, not quite.

There’s a deal in the works — so reports Dan Matthews at RealBusiness who goes on to say that The London Times reckons SpinVox is ready to be flogged for $150m to Nuance.

The founders, the management team and the previous load of shareholders are also rumoured to get nothing. Zilcho. Nada.

We move on.

Nice one, Nuance.

    At least we know Nuance has technology that might actually get the job done. The Dragon Dictation app on the iPhone is amazing!

    So much to say here but I think that I will refrain at this moment:)

    What happened to SpinVox and why are they “the world’s most ridiculous company”?

    Oh, I just read the Times note and I remember the issue over the summer. Yep, very ridiculous indeed 😉

    Nuance did try to attract staff away from SpinVox with some targeted recruitment back in October, as per http://www.nuance.com/news/pressreleases/2009/2

    Guess where SpinVox are based!

    $150m?? That's a lot of money. I have my doubts.
