While the world continues to wait for Apple to buy an enormous and powerful company with its stockpile of cash, the tech giant just keeps quietly snapping up smaller ones instead. The latest: BroadMap and Catch, two completely different tech companies that focused on mapping technologies and productivity, respectively. News that the pair were acquired by Apple came from 9to5Mac today, which pointed to changes in job listings by a handful of employees on LinkedIn. All Things D later got confirmation from Apple that it, in fact, bought both. The two companies add to a growing list of businesses Apples picked up during 2013 — acquisitions that have come without any official announcements, but that could strengthen the companys existing products and services.
