  Actually, swiping down from the entire screen space between the Dock and the top edge of screen activates the Spotlight search in iOS 7. That's about the same amount of space one would swipe right on iOS 6. Contextually and in terms of UI, it's actually more consistent. You'd swipe down similarly from that screen space to get search in Mail, Notes, Music app, Videos app, iTunes U (more or less), and similar apps where Search is not a prominent feature.

    And it's Apple's responsibility to make sure competing businesses are able to keep their employees? How does that logic work in competition?

At one point, there wasn't any income tax either in the US. It was Unconstitutional to tax one's wages. Interest income was however.
I can't wait to get my check for 1/7 of $1.
