The great thing about small developers is that they are great at focusing on a product and making it mature quickly. Small developers also don't upgrade only once a quarter.

I'd go for a partnership. Apple turns Sherlock into a power house search tool (net and computer and Watson is a default install (free for the first install) that handles Web content services.

Apple needs to start embracing the small developer, this is where the next gen. ideas originate and can prosper without the red tape involved in large orginizations.
