  That sort of makes it hard for some features to work like suggested searches that rely on sharing your search history.
  You see in some ways this is what makes Apple a better company then Google and Microsoft. Apple is perfectly happy with teaming up with others to provide its users' service. It doesn't have to own every service it provides. Further, why team up with Yahoo, when Yahoo uses Bing's search engine? Bing also is a good search engine for 90 percent of what I imagine people search for. It isn't as good as Google for more technical stuff, but that will change.
 Why? Further, Apple does ask you when you set up your device whether you want to opt in to location services.
Since Spotlight uses Bing it seems likely Apple has to work with Microsoft.
  Perhaps, you could just read the article you are commenting on?
 It didn't stop the DOJ from suing Apple over the bogus price fixing suit further entrenching Amazon's monopoly in e-books.
I elect to get the $5 Starbucks card. I prefer Bing over Google 90 percent of the time.
  True, however, Apple owns the most trafficked and valuable retail stores. The loss of such a presence can't be a good thing.
  What does that mean? Apple killed a product that was brought to market in 2005? Craig returned to Apple in 2009. Apple killing the product doesn't say anything about Craig's leadership skills. When Jobs returned to Apple he killed all kinds of stuff.
  I suspect Beats and Apple doesn't care if the company is making money. Further, the financials showed Apple would recoup the investment in 3 years (not to mention the immediate benefit of having whatever assets Apple wanted immediately). People also act like Apple can't influence the quality of Beats headphones going forward if it felt it was warranted.
