Why Google Doesnt Want the iPhone to DieGoogle has a vested interest in seeing the iPhone succeed.By Ed Oswald, Technologizer    Apr 17, 2011 7:00 amUs journalists and bloggers like to make a lot of the battle between Googles Android and Apples iOS, but it the search engine has a vested interest in seeing the platform succeed. Why? iPhones and iPads are simply sending the site a ton of traffic.Says Asia-Pacific president Daniel Alegre to AdNews:”Whenever iPhone succeeds, Google succeeds. I actually dont look at it as iPhone versus Android. iPhone is a very strong driver of query growth for Google. We also monetise apps through the iPhone..we actually benefit from iPhones growth.”
