Automattic 買下 Beeper

沒想到後續消息居然會是這個,在 Hacker News 上看到 Automattic 買下 Beeper 的消息:「Beeper acquired by Automattic (WordPress) (beeper.com)」,原文在「Beeper is joining Automattic」這邊。

先前因為弄出與 iMessage 相通的工具而知名,當時還追過這個新聞:

看起來之前就有投資的關係了:

Matt, Automattic’s CEO, and I have known each other for years. He was an early user, supporter and investor in Beeper.

不確定買下來能做什麼,新聞稿上講得是很冠冕堂皇... 但對 Beeper 的創辦人這邊大概就是順利脫手?當時 Apple 的態度讓 iMessage 相容性這條路走到 dead end;對 Automattic 這邊大概就是希望這群人做 IM project?

不過當時已經買了 Texts.com (參考當時的新聞「WordPress.com owner buys all-in-one messaging app Texts.com for $50M」),原來這組人是有什麼狀況嗎...?
