Following multiple reports from Wednesday that suggested Apple (AAPL) has an interest in acquiring social navigation service Waze, a new report suggests that negotiations between the two companies may be further along than we initially thought. Waze, a voice-guided navigation service provider that enhances its product by collecting and analyzing data from active users, is apparently receptive to the idea of being acquired by Apple but it is holding out for a hefty $750 million payday, TechCrunch reports. There is still a fair amount of ground to make up according to the report, as Apple has supposedly offered $400 million plus another $100 million in incentives.
