Is Apple Planning To Launch A New Global Search Engine?

On the 23rd of February, Techcrunch followed by the Financial Times reported that Apple had paid $50 million to acquire a start-up called “Chomp”. Chomp is an app search engine where you can find apps using keyword search. Intriguingly, it covers both iPhone and iPad along with Android. The team which created Chomp is already working at Apple on the company’s plan to replace the current “App Stores” with Chomp or a version of it.

For “apps” read “websites” and for listings read “rankings”, this is big world search and its happening all over again. The app world is now bigger than Google was in the year 2000 when Google had indexed one billion pages — since an app typically has several “pages”.

How Much is Google Paying Apple To Be The Search Engine On iPhone, iPad, And Elsewhere?
$1 billion.

Schachter believes Google searches on Apple devices resulted in $1.3 billion in gross revenue. He believes Google has a 75% traffic acquisition cost associated with that revenue. As a result, Google only gets $335 million in net revenue from searches on iOS and Safari.

Apple blesses Twitter as the social network of Mountain Lion, shuns Facebook -

The apple of Apple’s eye, Twitter, will soon be the default social graph and social network for all iOS and Mac devices, as Facebook once again gets the shaft.

Apple has integrated Twitter into OS X Mountain Lion, the next-generation operating system for Macs announced Thursday and slated for summer release.

Apple’s Siri Still Hates the British. And Southerners

Siri comes with support for five languages: three dialects of English (U.S., United Kingdom, and Australia), French and German.

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/12/20/apples-siri-still-hates-british-and-southerners/

A growing number of accented Americans have taken to Apple’s forums to voice their complaints in the only language Apple tech support understands: the written one.

If Apple “Onshored” iPad Production it Would Create 67,000 American Manufacturing Jobs!

That’s the conclusion reached in this study here:
http://simply-american.net/2011/11/30/comparing-apples-to-apples/

If Apple brought the assembly line for the iPad onshore into the US, it would create 67,000 manufacturing jobs right here in America. Obviously, Apple’s profit share would be destroyed since the American labor market would be payed much more than the Chinese laborers.

Siri: Why Apple will build, buy, or partner on a search engine: Siri is emerging as Apple’s game-changer that could put serious pressure on Google. But, first Apple needs to figure out web search integration.

http://www.zdnet.com/blog/btl/siri-why-apple-will-build-buy-or-partner-on-a-search-engine/64382

The revolutionary piece of Siri is what it does in Internet search. It’s early and Siri is still imperfect, but there are moments when Siri drastically streamlines the search process and gives us a peek at the future.

Below, Stewart Alsop, veteran venture capitalist, ex-tech journalist, and Apple watcher, says that Apple is developing a smart search architecture and is embedding its newly acquired Siri technology into all its devices and content. He also predicts that the iPad will soon become as large as a television!

Siri’s Sister Company Launches a Discovery Engine — Trapit, a startup that personalizes content with the same artificial intelligence technology that powers Apple’s Siri, is launching its public beta.

Trapit was unveiled in June as a system for personalizing content based on keywords, URLs and reading habits. The company describes itself as a “Pandora for content.” By using its A.I. technology, Trapit can identify related content based on contextual data from more than 50,000 sources.

    You could actually go in depth in why the Status Quo is limiting personal views and actions. More or less an influence in politics and social subconsciousness.
