Apple to Replace Google with Bing as Default iPhone Search Engine

According to an article in BusinessWeek, Apple and Microsoft are negotiating to replace Google as the default search engine with Microsoft's Bing. The main reasons behind these talks are the increasing conflicts between Apple and Google.

The two companies have started to encroach on each other's territories, with Google getting into the smartphone business, directly competing with the iPhone and with Apple's recent acquisition of Quattro Wireless, an ad company that targets ads to mobile phone users based on their behavior.

Hopefully Apple realizes that this is a mistake and will at least give iPhone Safari users the option to switch between the two.
