    WOW, Quite a rally for beiing cut-out of the APPLE ecosystem

    Does not make much sense at all. The future of search is mobile. And AAPL controls a large and increasing share of that market. GOOG is now a memory on the AAPL ecosystem.

    • Think the other devices control 68% of the mobile markets and growing. Apple has no search engine, so people will have to switch even more to get the POWER OF SEARCH AND MAPPING TOGETHER. If revenues were that important to GOOG, why didn't they rolled out an app for google search and map for apple 5? Now the tables have turned. Now apple needs google more than google needs apple.

      • Becasue it is up o Apple whether they want it or not, Google would like to remain partners with Apple on a variety of mobile fronts, including web search, but acknowledged that the ball remains in Apple’s court. 68% of the mobile market is going to continue to be lower in the next few years to come as AAPL iPhones take more mkt shares from others, it is a matter of time.
