Any way to make Siri use Google instead of Bing?

Title says it all.

Interesting. I meant by default.

If you say "google search", it opens safari, but it breaks the integration.

As far as I know, there isn't.

In my opinion I don't think it breaks the integration that much, since tapping one of the links in Siri would open Safari anyway, but I can understand why some people would prefer Google search links instead of Bing's.

Wait till the iOS 7 Jailbreak, someone will probably have created a tool.

I don't think it was Microsoft paying Apple to use Bing, more so as Apple trying to shy away from using Google's Services.
