According to that link, Google has a 65% share. I've seen estimates as high as 90%, though. Either way, Google has nearly 3/4 of the market. I think Apple may be making a huge mistake taking on the global phenomenon that is Google. Not even Apple, with its undisputed brand loyalty and cult-like following, will be be able to out-Google them.
Rubbish. Google more powerful than Apple...in what? 'Search engines?' AND..?
Google is one giant balloon and Apple are in a class of their own.
Google's stuff looks like it's made by nerdy, number crunching 'mee too' accountants. They're the M$ of internet/mobile computing. They are flat out awful.
I don't associate the word 'class' and Google in the same breath. I don't use their free crap web software of their crap mail service.
If Apple makes a search engine, even a semi-decent one? I go there. Straight away. Google have moved on Apple's turf in true turn coat style. Good luck to them.
Are Google ahead in OS? Computers? App store? Phones? Mp3 players? Digital stores? 'Coolness'?
I can't wait until Apple opens their data centre. If they do a Search Engine and can take 50 million Mac users with them...plus the pending 12-16 million more in Macs sales pending as from this year on...plus all the neary 100 million 'touch' users.
That's alot of search add revenue. Within Apple's eco system? Google are nearly irrelevant. I use Google for search. If they keep on with audacious move on Apple I'll stop using their search engine. Then what they going to do?
Google more powerful than Apple? Give me a break. Google sold what? 20 thousand phones, mere rebranded phones at that...and that's supposed to make them more powerful?
Do they have state of the art network of nearly 300 Apple stores that completely re-invented how we sell computers?
Innovation and Google? Where?
I'd happily use Bing if it meant a bridge to getting an Apple search engine ready and as a way of slowing Google down.
