Exactly, Apple is the interface. SWIR is the internal brain. If SWIR can work with both Apple, Microsoft and Samsung- what a boon. Who better to buy out this company than Apple. Apple is working on a interface for the home.
Apple may create products that utilize the sort of technology created by SWIR, but that's hardly Apple "going into the same business". That's like saying Apple is in the same business as Intel, since their phones have microchips in them.
