Google and the DOJ


Google is the defendant in an anttrust case brought by the U.S. Department of Justice

I have been following the case, and now it has been revealed that Apple gets 36% of the Revenue Google generates from the Safari browser.

That’s estimated at $18 billion a year that Google pays Apple for putting Google as its default search option.

If Google loses the antitrust case, then Apple could be pushed into allowing customers to choose a search engine option when setting up an Apple device rather than having Google set as the default.

Or maybe not, because the case isn’t against Apple and Apple says it chooses Google as the default search engine because it is the best around.

Meanwhile Apple is developing its own AI-powered search engine.
