    Bing is better than Google when it comes to searching


    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    That's a lot of money but a smart move by Google.

    all this talk about "default" search engines. in all cases we can set the search engine, and in Mozilla we can add ones not listed.

    so what point is made here?

The two companies are directly competing in online advertising (Quattro vs. AdMob), browsers (Chrome vs. Safari), and, smartphones (Android vs. iPhone). However, Google powers the Maps application in addition to online search, and Apple's recent purchase of mapping company PlaceBase raised speculation that they were thinking about developing their own inhouse map engine. PlaceBase's CEO Jaron Waldman became part of Apple's new Maps Team, which began searching for engineers to help "take Maps to the next level, rethink how users use Maps and change the way people find things."
    I think you mean iPad.

    I would not mind at all actually. I can't wait for the Google Nexus to be a little more accepted in terms of available applications & games. I would gladly make the switch to it then. I am a little tired and bored of the iPhone now and Jobs' authoritarian control over its development...adding small updates and features and turning those into new models and big public launches.
