For years, Google has been the default search engine on Safari for iOS, iPadOS, and macOS, but some new details and updates suggest that Apple may be looking to launch their own search engine. For example, a Coywolf report suggests that Apple is heavily investing in search positions due to an increase in job postings for search engineers. In addition to an increase in search engineer positions, Apple has updated its Applebot web crawler page. Apparently, the Applebot support updates mirror details that Google provides to webmasters and SEOs. So far, no news has been released surrounding development of a search engine, but Apple has enough to gain from a search engine, including a weakening of Google’s monopoly and continued control of the Apple ecosystem.
Wish, the discounted e-commerce marketplace, has submitted a draft registration to the SEC for a public stock offering. Wish, founded in 2010, offers over 70 million users access to deeply-discounted items. From home goods to apparel and electronics, Wish competes directly with industry giants Amazon and Walmart in offerings, yet Wish continues to set itself apart with its accessibility to users of every socio-economic status (e.g., no membership fees compared to Amazon’s $119 Prime subscription). Wish’s filing joins others like Asana and Snowflake as the tech IPO market expands despite widespread economic uncertainty.
Starting the week before the presidential election on Nov. 3, Facebook will ban political ads and will delete any posts that claim voters will contract COVID-19 if they go to the polls to vote. The action will only ban political ads submitted in the week before the election but will allow any ads submitted before October 27. Previously, Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, has been in support of political ads regardless of falsified information. “I believe our democracy is strong enough to withstand this challenge and deliver a free and fair election — even if it takes time for every vote to be counted,” Zuckerberg wrote in a Facebook post. This action comes after other social media companies like Twitter and Pinterest have banned political ads on their sites.
