Apple is indexing the web in ways exposed by security researchers

Security researchers have discovered Apple’s search bots indexing the web in new ways, exposing their more extensive reach.

Why do we care?

The story I’ve linked includes a security breakdown, but that’s not why I’m interested.   It’s been speculated that Apple is working on a search engine – and there continues to be evidence in the field that it’s happening.  

Apple adding search to its capabilities – which is certainly quite possible with the government’s investigation of anti-trust relationships around search related to Google – would be a significant development in the space.   

Apple is likely to enter the search business.
