Google Paying Apple More Than $100 Million Annually For iPhone Search Deal http://geekapolis.fooyoh.com/?mid=geekapolis_gadgets_wishlist&page=1&document_srl=4561527 Rumors are floating around that Apple may or may not be building their own search engine. Which, sounds a little silly to me. One reason Apple might not want to build its own search engine: It's getting over $100 million a year from Google in its revenue share deal, according to our source. For Apple, that's not a lot of money. But, it's enough that it doesn't make sense for Apple to put considerable resources towards building its own Internet search engine. And, if Apple wanted more money or options, there's Microsoft ? with Bing and a big checkbook.
