First Google Maps got its throat cut. Then Youtube got the boot. Does anyone think Apple is bold enough to remove Google from being its default search engine in iOS? Sure its something easily changed by the user, but the fact is most don't, which is a massive chunk of iPhone and iPad users that Google will lose the ability to monetize. It would take no effort on Apple's part to embrace Bing as its default engine. Bing was quite crappy at first, but it's certainly good enough to compete now, and most iOS wont know the difference. Edit: It's speculated that Google paid $1,000,000,000 to Apple to be the default search engine during the last round of talks.
