Microsoft, Apple To Be Search BFFs
Some people might describe Apple and Microsoft as bitter rivals, kind of like Leno vs. Letterman (you know what I mean, if you're into pop culture references). But their rivalry might really seem more like Leno vs. Conan, as both have found common ground and even helped each other at times.
Remember when Microsoft helped Apple with a $150 million loan back in 1997? Well, the modern-day version of this is some deal that BusinessWeek has been reporting on, which might put Microsoft's Bing search engine on Apple's iPhones as a default. Bing isn't Google-sized just yet, but this deal might give Bing the push it needs.
