Google scared of Apple popularity?


Is Google insecure?. Is Google scared of the fact that Apple is more popular than itself?. Well the answer seems to be a yes as a report has stated that Google has resorted to loading the Apple iPhones with cookies from the advertising sites that users visit apart from Google. This in turn has led to the violating of the Safari Web Browser's privacy.

Safari Web Browser is used by millions of Apple users worldwide. With Google's violation, the user data can be tracked by it through the Safari Web Browser. This reportedly was done by Google to find out what the users are doing online. Apple's safari doesn't download cookies to phones until the user visits a particular website.

If found guilty, Google could be imposed a fine upto $16,000(Rs 8 lakh) per day. Looking at this one question that pops up is “Where is Google heading to nowadays?”.
