shrugger writes “I picked up my BlackBerry this morning to do a search and noticed Bing as my default search engine. I thought this was very strange, since I didn’t pick this setting. I went to change it back to Google and, to my chagrin, Bing was my only option! Apparently Verizon has pushed an update that removes all search providers except Bing. Thanks a lot Verizon!” The Reg notes: “The move is part of the five-year search and advertising deal Verizon signed with Microsoft in January for a rumored $500m.”
