Oh trust me, I rather leave the Ignorant comments to you. Since that is practically all of your comments, right? You're always so ready to criticize anyone or thing when it comes to someone or something taking a bite out of your beloved fruit. Like I said, good luck :).

They USED to use Google in Chinese iPhones, didn't they? If Apple had known anything about China, they would've used Baidu in the first place.
I will rejoice and throw flowers in the wind the day you stop commenting.

why the heck would apple want to buy baidu? the search market is already quite crowded and it doesnt offer any real benefits for apple-- they arent in the advertisement business unless you count iad.. which honestly is close to nothing
