Apple, Google

In a recent court hearing on Google's antitrust trial, Apple defended its controversial deal with Google that makes Google Search the default search engine on Apple devices. Apple executive, Eddy Cue, argued that the deal was in the best interests of users and that there was no valid alternative to Google at the time the deal was made.

The deal has been criticized by antitrust regulators, who argue that it unfairly gives Google an advantage over its competitors. However, Apple argues that the deal is necessary to provide users with the best possible search experience.

Apple's defense of the deal

Eddy Cue argued that the deal is in the best interests of users because Google is the best search engine available. They said that Google has the most comprehensive index of the web and the most advanced search algorithms. They also said that Google Search is constantly improving, thanks to the billions of dollars that Google invests in research and development.

Eddy Cue also argued that the deal is fair because Google pays Apple billions of dollars each year to be the default search engine on Apple devices. He said that this money helps Apple to develop new products and services that benefit users.

Google is not the only big tech company to be hit with monopoly accusations. Amazon is also on the FTC's radar.

The background

Critics of the deal argue that it unfairly gives Google an advantage over its competitors. They say that Google's dominant position in the search market makes it difficult for other search engines to compete. They also argue that the deal allows Google to collect more data about users, which gives it an unfair advantage in other markets.

Eddy Cue has responded to the criticisms of the deal by saying that Google's dominance in the search market is a result of its superior search technology. He also said that Apple users are free to choose their own search engine, and that many users do choose other search engines, such as DuckDuckGo and Bing.
