According to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal, Verizon Wireless and Google are in the process of finalizing a large-scale deal. If it goes through, Google would be come the default search provider for Verizon Wireless's phones. In return, Verizon would give Google a share of any ad revenue. The deal, which has been in the works for a year, is not yet finalized, and several issues have yet to be resolved. One sticking point is that Google wants to save information from user searches. Neither company commented on the Wall Street Journal story.

Who is going to want to have their searches saved?

One sticking point is that Google wants to save information from user searches.

More info they can turn over to the government. This is why I no longer use google.
To me it's not that big a deal really so bring it on...
have nothing to hide.. I don't search for anything that the feds would come after me for.

Here's a Suggestion!

How about replacing that God-awful OneSource with an internal version of Google's search engine? I might actually be able to find things from time to time. XD
Funny, I could find almost anything I needed in the old version. The new 'one source' sucks big time!

Android phones too?

Does this also mean VZW will be rolling out with Android phones too?? I hope so! Wouldn't that be awesome? 😁
Doubt it but never hurts to hope....
