A week after Apple-Twitter rumors made waves before getting dismissed, BI is reporting Apple (AAPL) is in talks to buy The Fancy, a Pinterest rival that takes a 10% cut on e-commerce referrals. Tim Cook has a Fancy account, and appears to have talked with the startup's CEO last month. How Apple would leverage The Fancy isn't clear. Maybe an e-commerce solution that uses some combo of the iPhone's camera, 3rd-party apps, Passbook, and AuthenTec?
