The rumours had been around for a while, but now it was official – Apple Confirmed the acquisition of 3-D Sensor Startup PrimeSense.
On Thomson Reuters (Eikon) we looked for the news in both the Apple feed (AAPL.O) and in mergers and acquisitions. In both cases, the first article was the one highlighted below which appeared at 06:43:14 (London).
Twitter was significantly faster. The earliest message we ingested into our system was from @allthingsd, note the second image which shows the timestamp at 23:22 (London) on Sunday night.
It’s quite a big time difference. If we missed an earlier article on Eikon, please do let us know.
