    I don't have a link to support it, but my iPhone fanboy friend told me today that apple bought a map company, so no more Google maps eventually, and their default search is going to be Bing!...

    Apple is like the crazy girlfriend that caught her boyfriend cheating. Banning Android from their existence is like the gf throwing out his clothes on the lawn.

    It's comedy, really. And obviously the higher-ups @Apple really don't have a clue in how to manage communities or understand letting something like this "slide" without comment will let business go on as-usual (no one would have noticed). Instead, they basically screwed themselves over such a trivial thing. <shrug>

    Wasn't Apple the dominate platform before Windows?

    That's what he said. He reads a LOT of forums and sites like endgadget. Not sure where this specific info came from though...

    And I in my own demented little way fight back by eradicating Bing from every computer that I control. I found one in the lab today that had a Bing infestation in Firefox. Since the students can't install apps, I think it came along with a Java update. :((

    No, they have never even been close to DOS/Windows in terms of market share.

    Jeremy, you're going to need to follow Sherman here over to the Wayback machine. Set the controls for 1978, Sherman. But Mr. Peabody, how will we get back when there are no IBM PCs in the world? Don't worry my dear boy, the Wayback machine runs on Apple ][s.

    Is this in a public or private school there? if its public shouldnt students be able to use whatever search engine they want? they get enough one sided teaching and propaganda as it is without censoring search engines
