Baidu coming to Chinese iPads, iPhones, pushing Google out

Apple is said to be planning to implement Baidu search on iPhones and iPads in China.

Apple is said to be planning to implement Baidu search on iPhones and iPads in China.

A Baidu product manager is said to have disclosed that Baidu had finalized an agreement with Apple to integrate the popular Chinese search engine. He confirmed that the Baidu-powered search will be available on iOS from June.

Baidu accounts for 83.6 percent of the Chinese market, according to MIC Gadget's translation of the original Chinese report which also suggests that the news doesn't bode well for Google, which will struggle to "gain ground in China".

China has become increasingly important to Apple. Piper Jaffrey analyst Gene Munster claims that China's growing middle class is going to help Apple reach a share price of $1,000.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
