Apple slowly dropping certain aspects of Google from its ecosystem is gonna put a little dent in Googles profits. I read somewhere that google makes around 2-3 billion a year from iOS licensing. Which is more than they make from their own Android OS. They have to make that amount up somewhere.

Notice they couldn't produce a single 'Street View' image for the article. That's got to say something about how 'functional' it is!

Nice, google trying to sidestep apple kicking them out of their native map app. Hey, integrate into all the competitors, sounds good :) wonder what the different licensing pricing is?
