Why Google Pays Apple $1 Billion a Year

Why Google Pays Apple $1 Billion a Year | Apple Research | Scoop.it

Google is expected to pay an estimated $1 billion to Apple in 2014 to keep its search engine as the default on iOS devices because, well, Google makes a huge portion of its mobile revenue from iPhones and iPads — enough to make rivalries disappear. Last year, Google paid $417 million for the exclusive search rights, up from just $82 million in 2009. Given the monster growth track of Apple devices, as well as the per-device rate Apple charges Google for prime search real estate, the exclusivity cost is expected to double over the next two years. And even though it seems a strange partnership for the sometimes rivals — they're competing over phone software, and Google's results show up in Apple's competing browser — the iPhone and iPad business is lucrative enough for Google's search advertising business that it might even be considered a steal.

 

As of March, something like 80 percent of Google's phone-search profits came from Apple, with only 20 percent coming from Android devices, per calculations from Apple Insider's Daniel Eran Digler. Google doesn't break down these numbers by device type, but in a court filling Google said it made $550 million in Android search revenues from 2008-2011. In 2011 alone, Google reported a $1 billion run rate for mobile revenues, which includes search revenues on Android and iOS, as well as sales from its Google Play app store. In 2011, Google made a little more than $100,000 from app sales, as you can see here:

Since Apple joined the Fair Labor Association in January 2012, we can praise the company efforts towards more transparent supply chain accomplished so far.

Steve Jobs’ Reality Distortion Field: Leadership or Bullying?

Steve Jobs’ Reality Distortion Field: Leadership or Bullying? | Apple Research | Scoop.it

"Steve Jobs’ approach to inspiring his employees was indeed bizarre. Yet as Isaacson states: “It infused Apple employees with an abiding passion to create groundbreaking products and a belief that they could accomplish what seemed impossible. They had T-shirts made that read ’90 hours a week and loving it.”


Steve Jobs did not respect any of "the management rules" you will find in books. But still, he made people build the best products and be proud of it.
If working with you is very hard, make it fascinating, at least.
