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.
