It must be at least a week since we last had a Google rumor, so Wired comes to our rescue with this juicy piece of gossip that involves Apple. They’re suggesting that Steve Jobs will likely, use Monday’s conference to tell the world about a partnership with Google.
One announcement I’m almost sure of, however : A far reaching, cloud computing partnership with Google. Both companies have been hinting about it for months, and it makes perfect sense…Google runs cloud based hardware and software better and cheaper than anyone in the world right now. How does it make money? By getting as many people as possible looking at advertising alongside search and other various software offerings. Imagine all the traffic from the following: You buy a Mac and you automatically get a free Google account.
With Google’s Eric Schmidt already on Apple’s board of directors- which has sparked many rumors about partnerships – it wouldn’t be too surprising to see this kind of partnership announced. It will be interesting to see the reaction, when two of the coolest brands in the world, join forces. Will their offspring be just as beautiful, or will loyalists from both camps reject the intrusion.
