It appears that in the iPhone 4.0 OS Apple has decided to remove references to "Google" in the Safari browser, changing the auto-complete button from "Google" to "Search," despite the fact that it will still use the Google search engine.
The move has started the rumor mill, with some reporting that Apple is set to change over to Bing as a default search engine, as a way to get back at Google for encroaching on Apple's smartphone territory with the launch of Android.
The tech giants are also now competing in the mobile ad market, with Apple starting iAd as a way to rival Google's potential purchase of mobile ad giant AdMob.
