Finally! Dear Sleep, here I come.. :smile:

But this entire rumor made me realise that "Nothing is Forever", except faith. Waze is bound to sell sooner or later. The more time Waze takes, the better for us Waze Addicts and OCD patients.

Nah, they don't need to employ tactics like that. M&A rumours like this are daily occurrences for both mega companies and start-ups alike. Not the first time Waze's name has been involved, won't be the last.

Yes, no need. As I write this Waze is the most downloaded navigation-app for iPhone in 17 countries, 45 countries have Waze in the top-3.

Apple will destroy Waze! I will leave Waze if Apple buys Waze. Lucky, so far, there allternativ
I'm using Samsung Galaxy S7 Android 6.0.1 Swedish and the latest Waze version.

I subscribe to all those tech blogs like BGR and Engadget too, and you're right, rumors like this pop up all the time. I suspect we haven't heard the end of this rumor considering "sources" have nothing to lose when they remain nameless.

But what if the article saying it's "false news" is also a rumor?
