Apple and Search Engines
November 16, 2008 Leave a comment
If one is to believe the rumors, Apple is working on some sort of search engine wrapper for its mobile products. Other rumors suggest that Apple is building a search engine which I think is bunk for obvious reasons.
I can see why they would do that, the screen real estate is much smaller and the needs are likely different than when you are searching from a laptop or desktop computer.
Going further back, Apple had some involvement with WAIS and also released a search gateway product based on WAIS back in the mid-90’s, though I have forgotten what it was called.
