Google will pay Apple $9 billion this year to remain the default search engine in the iPhone’s Safari browser, according to one Goldman Sachs analyst. That’s a hefty expense for Google, but will Apple end up paying the price when it comes to business messaging? According to Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall, Apple charges Google based on the number of searches iPhone users perform using Safari or Siri. If his $9 billion estimate is correct, it means Google is paying Apple roughly $10 a year for every iPhone user, as Cult of Mac reports. Hall predicts that number may climb as high as $12 billion next year, although other analysts have made lower estimates. Whatever the exact price tag, iPhone users acco

The Great Ghoul DuelCredit: Google It's nearly Halloween, and just as surely as the children will dress up as monsters and demand candy, we've got a new playable Google Doodle on our hands. This year we're working with what the search giant is calling "The Great Ghoul Duel." It's a competitive multiplayer arcade game that's likely to neutralize productivity at work today, especially because you can host private games with your co-workers. Starting it up is easy: just go to Google.com and click on the banner at the top. Here's how the game works, on a basic level. You move around with either touch, the arrow keys or the mouse, depending on your platform. It works a little bit like a competitive Pac-Man: you go out into the world and run into blue "sp

By Dave Simpson Law360 (July 20, 2018, 9:32 PM EDT) -- In a partial dissent from a decision handing Google, Apple, AOL and Yahoo a win in a patent infringement suit, a Federal Circuit judge on Friday slammed the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2014 Alice decision, expressing frustration with its definitions of “abstract ideas” and “inventive concepts.”U.S. Circuit Judge S. Jay Plager made clear that he wasn’t faulting the high court’s attempt to define an abstract idea, nor the Federal Circuit for following that formula — which led to a majority opinion affirming a lower court’s decision...

What's that? A week with nearly as much good news as bad in the world of privacy and security? It's true! Especially the privacy part.On Friday, the Supreme Court issued a hotly anticipated ruling in Carpenter v. United States, establishing that the government will need to get a warrant if it wants to track your location with cell sites. Meanwhile in California, it looks like residents might soon benefit from a privacy law that grants unprecedented power—in the US, anyway—over what data companies collect and what they do with it. And while this isn't privacy related, strictly speaking, Apple's new partnership with startup RapidSOS will push iPhone owners' locations to dispatchers during 911 calls, saving first responders valuable minutes and almost certainly saving lives.It's not all su

Editor's note: The following is a guest post from Andreas Reiffen, CEO of Crealytics.  Measured in advertising dollars, Google's pay-per-click search advertising model is still the unmitigated leader in monetizing purchase intent. Google's market share in overall search is somewhere near 85% in the U.S. and 91% in Europe — enough to warrant regulatory oversight for antitrust violations. No other ad platform comes close to it in being as equipped to capture all the consumer signals that allow the company to know where, when and how shoppers are searching for a product and target them at that moment. Except for one. Enter Amazon. Amazon's advertising business is still nascent, though it's now a multi-billion dollar program and the company is already seasone
