More on Apple: The WSJ reports Apple is "in early discussions" to integrate Foursquare's data within Apple Maps. No word on whether they're just talking about Foursquare's check-in data (unmatched), or also its reviews/ratings data (not the case). TechCrunch recently speculated an Apple-Foursquare deal could arrive, given signs the companies are drawing closer. Apple reviews/check-in partner Yelp (YELP), which fell today on a Facebook product revamp, could fall some more. Also: one source claims Steve Jobs thought Apple could compete with Google in local search.
