Seems to me a no-brainer. Get into Googles space, they're into everybody else. Stock would sore. Maybe that's what's coming in the new OS?
Listen, millions of dumb slugs fell in love with the AAPL music device, the I-pod thingy.
And that same generation of customers then bought more overpriced AAPL junk.
AAPL run was a generational fad that is now history.
APPS are replacing search keyword. Soon you will just press a button and Location Based Technology and Services will align a consumer with a vendor.
Buy Yahoo. Get search, services and mostly Marissa Mayer who does have a clue unlike Cook
Yahoo search is powered by Bing so I don't think Apple would get much by buying Yahoo.
"Stock would sore." Is that a good or a bad thing?
Apple already makes a lot of money on search. Google pays them to be the default search engine. It has been estimated Google could pay Apple a billion dollars for that right next year.
Apple is all about keeping a laser-like focus on a few things. They had a hard enough time with maps. No need to get bogged down in other software distractions that could tarnish the brand.
i think they are removing GOOG from the default, i thought i read them somewhere
"sore"? I think you mean "soar"!! lol
they are in search, it is called SIRI
SIRI is set to check GOOGLE last
they did this to hurt GOOG by decreasing usage of it
and also so that GOOG gets a smaller view of what iOS users search for
