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.

    I only use yelp to get a phone number or address. I never read or consider the reviews any longer because their filter paints an inaccurate and picture of a business.

     

    Hopefully the Apple + Foursquare partnership will take place.

    Good news for users. Yelp gives bad directions and phony reviews. Who needs it?

    This the same WSJ that saw one person in line at the iPhone 5 Chinese opening and concluded the sales had tanked?

     

    Why yes it is.
