    Why Apply does not have own search engine?
    Microsoft has bing,
    Google has google search,
    Yahoo has yahoo search.
    why no "Apple search"?

    Because Microsoft (Bing), Google, and Yahoo are all software companies - whereas Apple is a hardware company.

    They don't make software; they run software.

    Is an Apple search engine a far-fetched idea? Maybe not. In a 2013 Seeking Alpha article Kevin Fulton said he thought an Apple search engine would be the company’s “next big thing” (though, of course, five years later, this still hasn’t happened). He said that Apple has been bolstering its technology portfolio in preparation for the day when it becomes independent from Google.

    Fulton said that, rather than competing directly with Google’s broad search capabilities, he thinks Apple will personalize its search offering.

    “The search engine will use machine learning and restrict the information only to relevant sources that the user trusts,” he adds. “It will be location and circle of influence based. Apple will implement its personalized search ability across the iOS ecosystem by integrating the improved Siri into apps and having loadable native commands to run those apps by voice.”

    I’m not convinced that we'll see Apple Search. However, I’m not as sure as I once was that we won’t.

    there was specific laws made designed to target companys running search engines.
    there was some jostling for position as anti-trust laws were being raised by companys that wanted to try and make more money.

    apple created their market position by being number 1 among people who used technical software anddidnt like the closed system of ibm as it was being captured by microsoft.

    by remaining out-of-the-market of search engines, apple have managed to stay clear of all the negative associations around anti-trust issues.

    apple have market dominance with computers now as portable devices and have total control of the market for search engines access to those users.
    they need not waste their time, money or market position to build their own when they can simply sit back and wait for the market to regulate its self as a third party user.

    they keep their hands clean and dont enter the social arguement of what is right and what is wrong for a search angine and how it sells advertising etc.

    To the contrary, a lot of their proprietary software is the industry standard; it’s why they can still sell Mac computers at ridiculous price points and people buy them. Build quality and proprietary software is top of the line.

    if they are the only ones who produce the commercial model and privatise the ownership of the system(company is a person).
    then they are the only ones in the market.
    from what i read apple were the first to produce a computer specifically designed for graphic designers.
    everyone who was anyone in the computer graphic design market had to have an apple.
    and so did the web site builders.
    that was their system of RAM & processing that was markedly different to IBM/microsoft they also put their own OS with it and designed the way it handled data differently(horses for coarses and their horse was clearly labeled by the industry as the best availible).
    apples ability to then sell to that market was used extremely well and they maintained their market edge.
    job well done.
    is their software the best ?
    thats a false statement if you cant use any other software or their isnt any other software on the market.
    thus ... your comment is a little confusing.

    Question; Does the Motorola chip require a different language than the Intel chip?
  13. bharaja Registered Member

    who can knows it ? why...
  14. RainbowSingularity Valued Senior Member

    irony or design ?

    this looks like a very good easy read
    easy to follow basic run of events in the evolution stages of the new memory systems and move of chips

    to answer your question ...



    short answer it looks like it is most liekly C though can be C or C+ or C++
    note ARM is what apple is moving to next so they say.
    and both use the same.

    Machine code/assembler is very different for both processors.

    Higher level languages can be identical, of course.

    I think why apple doesn't have any search engine because apple is a hardware selling smartphone company. It was established along with microsoft both were at manufacturing of desktop. So they never focused at that point of time.

    using Hackintosh is it using pirated software?

    is MACOS more stable than Windows?

    Apple might be number 1 but I totally avoid them. I prefer not to be controlled.
