Apple is launching search engine to destroy Google — and you’re already using it |
“Paid Inclusion” is basically the ads that consumers think are content, but are really ads. You can see this on your desktop by doing a search for “used iPhone.” The majority of the screen real estate is now ads! In the example above 11 of the 12 links are advertisements! [...] I could see Apple knocking 10 points off Google’s search business here in the USA in the next couple of years by simply making search an advertising-free piece of Apple’s OPERATING SYSTEM! [...] Apple is leapfrogging Google by making search something that is built into the core of your mobile phone and desktop. [ user experience, frictionless ] [...] Tim Cook is painting Google, accurately, as the evil successor to Microsoft, and Google’s management team is reinforcing this by closing ranks and destroying their partners. [ If its free to use, ... you are paying with your usage, with your data, your identity, ... ]
