Google default search engine for ios

 

It looks like Google is willing to go to great lengths to keep their search engine at the top of the list in the mobile platform. So much so that they have agreed to share a percentage of their revenue with Apple to keep their search bar up, front, and center.

 

This is according Annette Hurst, Oracle’s attorney during a hearing in federal court. She specified that at one point in time, the revenue share was 34 percent, and in 2014, Google paid Apple US$1 billion.

 

Oracle Corp.’s filed a copyright lawsuit against the search engine giant in 2010 over claims that Google used its Java software without paying for it to develop Android. The damages Oracle seeks may exceed US$1 billion since it expanded its claims to cover newer Android versions.

 

According to Bloomberg, the transcript containing this information has vanished without a trace from electronic court records. This is no surprise as Google has requested for the transcript to be blocked saying the disclosure could severely affect its ability to negotiate similar agreements with other companies. Although the request was denied by the magistrate judge.

 

“The specific financial terms of Google’s agreement with Apple are highly sensitive to both Google and Apple. Both Apple and Google have always treated this information as extremely confidential,” said Google in their filing.

 

Google Voice Search
 
If you can say it, you can search for it.

You can now search Google by saying your search term, instead of typing it. This could be a convenient way to search if you speak faster than you type or if you’re not sure how to spell your search term.
 
Using Voice Search
Open the Chrome browser and go to http://www.google.com/. You’ll see a small gray microphone on the right-hand side of the search box.

 

Click the microphone or press Ctrl+Shift+Period (Mac: ⌘-Shift-Period) with your cursor in the search box to start voice search. When the large red microphone icon appears, begin speaking. You can press ESC or click the red button to cancel.
As you speak, Google will interpret your voice input. Afterwards, your results show up just as if you had typed the search term.
To improve processing of your voice input, Google may record a few seconds of ambient background noise in temporary memory at any time. This recording remains on the device only fleetingly and is not sent to Google.

 

Spoken Answers
If you ask your question to Google on Chrome, the answer can be spoken to you. The answer can be a fact, weather condition, stock price, flight status, sports score, currency conversion, mathematical calculation, and more. Spoken answers are only supported in English at this time.

Google’s Card-Style OneBoxesd

By on December 9, 2012

Google updated the desktop OneBoxes for definitions and local time to match the card layout from Google Now. The same layout is also used in the mobile search user interface for most Google OneBoxes.

 

 

 

The good thing about the cards is where they are more distinctive and is highlighted just below your just box, so very the user very hard to ignore it.

Google added another new amazing feature for their mobile search engine – Handwriting recognition.

 

Users on Android and iOS devices can enable handwriting support by tapping on settings over at Google.com and enabling Handwrite. You’ll need to be running iOS 5 or later on your Apple device or any version of Android other than Honeycomb to take advantage of the new Handwrite technology.

 

Amazingly, up to 27 languages are supported by the new handwriting feature which understandably works best in Google’s own Chrome browser. 3G have been waiting for this feature for sometime because it’s quite slow and counter productive to type using on-screen QWERTY keyboards.

 

The Handwrite feature is very new and it’ll probably take some time before it gets to a standard where it’ll be adopted on a wide-scale by the general population. However, auto-complete will still work when using the Handwrite feature , which should aid its effectiveness.

 

Watch the following video clip for their amazing new features

US Internet giant Google on Tuesday started building one of its three planned data centres in Asia to meet fast growing online demand from the region, the company said.

“More new Internet users are coming online everyday here in Asia than anywhere else in the world,” Daniel Alegre of Google said during a ceremony to begin work on the $300 million, 15 hectare (37 acre) site in Changhua county, western Taiwan.

“They are looking for information and entertainment, new business opportunities and better ways to connect with friends and family, near and far.

“That is why we are building data centres in Asia — to ensure that our users here have the fastest, most reliable access possible to all of our services, so they can continue putting them to work.

Construction of the two other data centres for the region — in Singapore and Hong Kong — started in December and will cost $700 million in total. Google also has similar centres in the United States and Europe, but none so far in Asia.

The search engine giant has faced stiff competition in Asia, particularly in the China market where domestic search services, including Baidu, are household names to a 485 million-strong internet population — the world’s largest.

Google is one of top money making company which focus on the search engine business. The search engine giant makes about $37.9 billion last year and most of the income is come from their Adwords advertising program.

Just Amazon itself already spends over $55 million in 2011 to advertise on Google Adword whereas Apple spend $17.9 million and Microsoft spend $16.3million. The most ironically is both Apple and Microsoft have their own advertising platform and yet they still spending so much of money to advertise on their fiercest rival.

Let’s view the following infographic show the summary of Google source of income for year 2011

According to a note by Macquarie analyst Ben SchachterApple made US$1 billion off Google last year by having it as the default search engine in Safari. He observed that Apple seems to be moving away from Google Maps, which doesn’t affect Google much. But if Apple decides to stop using Google for search, it could be a major blow to Google, since the iPad appears to be gaining a lot of popularity around the world. If the iPad overtakes the PC in the next five years and it becomes the preferred method that people use to make their search, then Google will be in trouble.

Schachter believes that Google searches on iOS devices resulted in US$1.3 billion in gross revenue, and Google has a 75% traffic acquisition cost associated with that revenue.This means that the Internet and software corporation only gets US$335 million in net revenue from searches on iOS and Safari.

I believe most of the people know about the web site whatismyip.com or IP2Location.com where you may get your public IP from these web site.With the Search Engine Gaint – Google, now you get to know your public IP address by enter the following keyword such as [My IP], [my ip address], [show my ip], [what is my ip] and other similar queries.

 

 

“Just like a street address determines the recipient of a letter, an IP address (short for Internet Protocol address) is used to identify computers on the Internet. When your computer sends a request, such as a Google query, it tags the request with its IP address in order for the response to be sent back to your computer — just like a return address on a letter. (…) When you type the query [ what is my ip ], Google will respond by showing you the IP address of the computer from which the query was received. In the simplest case, this IP address uniquely identifies your computer among all computers on the Internet,” explains Google.
