Apple + Baidu = End of the Line for Google in China? [techwireasia.com]

Apple is moving away from Google. In a string of pearls kind of approach, Apple has first moved away from Google Maps service in its latest iPhoto for iOS release. Now if the recent news is true, Apple would be kissing Google's search engine goodbye in China.

...

Google's search share isn't impressive. Baidu is the leading search engine in China with 83.6% market share. Google doesn't even come close. With the growing popularity of mobile phones and the way Chinese devour their iOS devices, Google might be on its last leg in China.
