Microsoft CEO: Apple deal gives Google dominance in search

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella testified in Google's antitrust case on Monday:

Google's dominance of search means publishers and advertisers tailor their content to Google's requirements, making it harder for rivals like Microsoft to gain a foothold.

The default search agreement between Google and Apple is a core element of the case, which makes Google search the default search engine for Apple's Safari browser.

Nadella confirmed this argument in his testimony, describing the obstacles that search software like Bing faces in gaining more market share from Google.

Nadella said that getting this default position from Apple would be a "game changer."

He said that if Apple switches to Bing, Microsoft is prepared to provide Apple with all the economic advantages in the deal and is prepared to lose up to $15 billion per year in the process.

Nadella even stated that he is willing to hide the Bing brand in the search engine of Apple users. "If Apple reaches an agreement with Microsoft, it may use Bing's technology and build it into its own Apple search engine."

However, according to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, Apple’s AI director John Giannandrea leads a large search team.

The team has created the next generation search engine for Apple apps and is working to integrate the search technology, codenamed "Pegasus," more deeply into the iOS and macOS experience.

However, micro-LED screens are much more expensive than LCD, OLED and even mini-LED. Therefore, mass production of devices with micro-LED screens is not yet feasible.

The micro-LED screen is expected to be 2.12 inches in size, which is 10% larger than the screen of the current Apple Watch Ultra.

Tesla said several years ago that it planned to switch its standard-range vehicles to LFP batteries, which are more suitable for lower-range vehicles.

According to Teslarati, this car may be produced at the Texas Gigafactory and may be a product of the factory's newly upgraded production line.
