Apple search.

/Apple search.

So those of you who keep up with computer news may know that Apple is beefing up search in the next release of OS X, Weed Yosemite. If anyone still thinks this isn’t because the latest round of the Computer Wars are going to be between Apple and Google, remember that Apple has announced Bing as its default search provider for this new service.

Yeah. Bing.

It’s true I use Google (or, well, DuckDuckGo nowadays) for a lot of simple, single answer questions. Things like “1201/3012”, or “USD 9.99 in AUD”, or “current time in UTC”. Because I always have a browser open somewhere, and it’s generally easier than launching some kind of dedicated app. Being able to type these same questions into Spotlight and get the same instant answers?

Yes please. Do want.
