Marissa Mayer wants Apple to ditch Google for Yahoo! as default iOS search engine - Page 5

post #161 of 173
That's nice. I'm sure Microsoft wants Apple to do the same thing. Is it too much trouble to change the default search engine? It only takes 2 seconds. I think what they should do is use all three and filter out the repeat sites.

Nope. Google will then "donate" to the DOJ and then suddenly the DOJ will investigate.
"If Safari becomes less useful as well, it's going to be third thing (maps, Siri, Safari) in iOS being second rate because Apple is having pointless feud with Google, and more reasons for users to switch away from what they already think is overpriced fashion toy."

This quote sums it up. It's contrary to the evidence. Siri is very useful. Safari as well w or w/o Google as default. Same with Maps.

 

Google's stuff has become second rate due purely to the fact that advertising is beginning to dominate everything they do and is interfering with the quality of their services.

 

Go on...

 

...cut the cord

 

...you don't need them.

Unobtrusive?..

 

...or easy to click on by accident.

 

Screw Google people can get by without them, who goes to search engine home pages anyway?

That would be AltaVista.

Depends on what one is expecting out of a weather app, but I agree Yahoo's app is very good.

It was meant to be a joke in that it is the new default Apple iPhone lock screen.

I don't put too much thought into doing it.

Way to unnecessarily quote a big huge, post and not have any reference to any of it in your response...

I have also had a Gmail account for the last seven years and had a small fraction of the spam (and spastic spam-filter) problems as with Yahoo and have never needed tech support. 

 

Not a popular observation on an Apple-booster site, I'm sure, but there it is. The only way to make Yahoo look good is to compare it with the steaming pile of rancid dingo chunder that was Hotmail (RIP).
