Will Bing Oust Google on iPhone?
[Via – BBC]
I tried hard to resist adding any more column inches to the Apple hype cycle ahead of next week’s expected release of the company’s tablet computer, but I confess to utter failure.
The reason is because this latest rumour, if it turns out to be true, signals a big shift for Apple, Google and Microsoft, with credible sources talking it up here in Silicon Valley.
The cynic in me also says it could also be some monumental mind game between Apple and Google.
The story is that Apple is set to replace Google as the default search engine on its iPhone with Microsoft’s Bing.
Bloomberg says “the talks have been under way for weeks, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public. The negotiations may not be concluded quickly and might still fall apart, the people said.”
FWIW, APPLE can do it , but it will be a huge deal to the point that folks might abandon the iPhone platform altogether.
