Report claims Apple (oddly) showed interest in failed payments startup Clinkle

A report from TechCrunch claims that Apple has expressed interest in acquiring the payment rewards startup Clinkle. Clinkle, which has been mocked and ridiculed often since its beginning, reportedly saw a mass exodus of employees today that stemmed from frustration with its CEO Lucas Duplan. One of the deciding factors surrounding the mass exodus was allegedly┬áDuplan’s lack of communication with employees regarding a potential sale to Apple.
