Google, Verizon Wireless close to mobile search deal


Best friends Google and Verizon Wireless are expected to ink a deal that’ll really bring in the green (…) The deal would make Google the default search provider on VZW phones, and VZW will get a cut of search revenue.

Apparently there’s still a few issues being worked out. Google wants to save all the searches on its servers, for one. Imagine Google with that info: “People tend to search for XYZ while on their cellphone, let’s increase the rate for XYZ ads.” And then Google takes over the world, or some such.
