Back in the day B.A. (Before Android) Google was this very well built man who had a lot of data and lots of cool features like maps and YouTube. Very easy going, people spoke well of him. Then there was Apple and all her attractiveness, everybody wanted and still does want her. So they got together and it was a match made in techno heaven with everything minus the celebrity mash-up name (Apoogle? Googapple?)
Then this new girl shows up with her "alternative" operating system. Google kind of went gaga for her. Next thing you know Android is on half of the smartphones out there and Apple, well she's not happy.
In the last few months we've seen this blissful union of two techno giants start to fracture drastically. First the announcement that Google Maps will no longer be part of the new mobile operating system IOS 6.
Then the latest bit of breakup fodder signaling the end of these two companies' techno union is Apple's decision to no longer bundle YouTube as part of this new OS since their license has ended and they're not planning on renewing. Yes you can still download the app but that's not the point.
These Google apps have been part of the mobile Apple package since 2007 and in this clearinghouse fashion, Apple is basically saying to Google, "We don't want you anymore, we're tired of paying for your stupid license. And we'll make our own cooler apps. Nay nay nananay."
Google doesn't seem to mind one bit.
