  • Google "Violated Alliance" with Apple


    Its a day of high drama for Apple and its competitors. First the Wall Street Journal reported that a sizable chunk of all Microsoft employees may be iPhone owners. Then The New York Times delves into the personal betrayal Steve Jobs feels from the folks at Google - individuals who apparently ruffled more feathers in Cupertino than we realize when they started modeling smartphones off of the iPhone.

    According to The New Times, Steve Jobs said:

    We did not enter the search business. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake; Google wants to kill the iPhone. We won't let them.
    In a comprehensive profile of the bad blood between Google and Apple, the scenario is presented that Steve Jobs remains deeply "emotional" about the dissolution of close ties between the two companies. The piece details why the bond has since deteriorated into "World War III" with Jobs overtly accusing Google of "stealing" some of the iPhone's key features.

    While, to the outside world, any competition between Apple and Google could merely suggest "business as usual," if the facts presented by the New York Times are legitimate, the truth of matter is that the rivalry is bitterly personal with aspects of deceit and betrayal worthy of a daytime soap opera.

    Apparently, the situation has gotten so bad that Apple may now be considering a partnership with Microsoft to make Bing the iPhone's default search engine. Given how many people at Microsoft (at least 10% of the global workforce) like - and own - the iPhone, perhaps such a partnership would be a welcome experience and, ultimately, a win-win for both powerful companies.

      That's totally B-S!
      Bing sucks and apple knows it.
      adding Bing to iPhone would be the equivalent to Owning a Ferrari and tossing in a ford pinto transmission.
      Really? So without a search engine on the iPhone, it wouldn't work? Because without an engine, a Ferrari won't run and you're comparing Bing/Google to a car engine. Maybe comparing it to cloth and leather seats?

      Hey Reeko...you need to take a chill pill son. I remember once thanking you for contributing so positevely to this community by your inspiring theme work.

      Don't get ideas above your stations by thinking that being pendantic and occasionally correct, that is gives you the right to criticise people, because you don't.

      If you can do the job better than the next man, I suggest you apply to MMi for a position as a writer, else go back to studying and get your qualifications....you're gonna need them with your current mindset.

      FWI, you will learn manners, respect and the rest as you get older. Knowledge is easy to gain, its application is another thing. Wisdom comes to mind.

      You have a lot of potential for a young blood, but give yourself a chance to grow in other ways before attacking people and their efforts!

      I thank you for your reply and take it all on board.

      it upsets me. I used to see MMi in my RSS feed and be a tad excited. MMi always got the scoops on the jailbreak stuff.

      Now it is poorly written, regurgitated general Apple news, which is so drastically twisted in an attempt for hits its bordering embarrassment.

      I am not here to argue or troll, rant over.

      Fair cop mate...I'm glad your big enough to take it on-board and appreciate your humility on this one. I apologise if I rubbed you up the wrong way.

      Either way, still love your work
