Google Paying Apple $100 Mil. A Year For iPhone Search Deal

There’s been talk that since Google and Apple are no longer the pals they once were, Apple might be looking to Bing to replace them as the search engine integrated into Safari and Mobile Safari on the iPhone. A new report alludes that that probably isn’t the case, as Google is paying $100 million a year to Apple in shared revenue for the privilege of being the official search engine of Safari.

The info comes from a source reported by Silicon Alley Insider, who also said that Apple also doesn’t have incentive to build their own because “there’s too many options” for search engines already.
