Apple May Oust Google from iPhone in Favor of Bing
Bloomberg reports that Apple is conducting negotiations with Microsoft about bringing its search engine Bing to the iPhone. Bloomberg cites sources familiar with Apple and Microsoft's plans, and notes that the move would make Bing the default search engine on the iPhone. Google is the current default search engine in the iPhone's browser. Right now, users can choose Yahoo instead, but have to perform the switch manually. Bloomberg's sources indicate that the talks have been underway for weeks and may still fall apart before a deal is reached. Microsoft has already created a Bing application for the iPhone, and Google has a search app for the iPhone, too.
