    Just for fun, I decided to compare the default bookmarks in Safari 6 with the previous version.

    Safari 6

    Apple
    iCloud
    Facebook
    Twitter
    Wikipedia
    Yahoo!
    News
    AllThingsD
    BBC
    CNN
    ESPN
    NPR
    USA Today
    The Wall Street Journal
    Popular
    Amazon
    Disney
    eBay
    Flickr
    Rotten Tomatoes
    The Weather Channel
    Yelp


    Safari 5

    Apple
    Yahoo!
    Google Maps
    YouTube
    Wikipedia
    News
    CNN
    The New York Times
    Google News
    CNET News.com
    ESPN
    Los Angeles Times
    BBC News
    NPR
    USA Today
    Popular
    eBay
    Amazon
    Flickr
    Expedia Travel
    Orbitz
    Facebook
    Monster Jobs
    CareerBuilder
    Disney
    craigslist​


    What is immediately obvious is that all Google sites are gone (Maps, News, YouTube).
    New York Times (previously one of Steve's favourite sites, before they reported on Foxconn working conditions and Apple's tax evasion) is replaced with always Apple-favorable WSJ and AllThingsD.
    And Facebook is promoted out of a folder to a third place after Apple home page and iCloud.

    Isn't it amusing how the new default bookmarks reflect the changes in Apple's relationships with other companies?
