Apple iPhone Could Get Microsoft Bing Search Engine As Default

The happy days of the Apple and Google partnership a over for real. Google's foray into operating systems with Google Chrome OS required CEO Eric Schmidt to leave the Apple board.
Today the BusinessWeek reports that Apple is in negotiations with Microsoft to make Bing the default search engine on the iPhone and possibly also on the Safari web browser in general.

When I use my iPhone I actually use a lot of Google services every day including Google Search, Google Maps, Google Calendar and Gmail.

Apple is rumored to also do their own maps service that would replace Google maps. With Mobile Me Apple already has an alternative to Google Calendar and other communication services.

Apple also recently got their own mobile advertising company with the acquisition of Quattro Wireless.

A Google free iPhone could be around the corner. Do I like this? Only if Apple makes Mobile Me free and give me the choice to use Google Search instead of Bing.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
