    This is very exciting news.

    Apparently Google and Apple decided that they would finally put an end to their bitter conflict. Apple's next phone, the iPhone 5, will be able to dual-boot between ios and Android operating systems.

    In addition, there will be a compatibility layer, similar to WINE for Linux, that will allow Android users to sign into iTunes and run ios apps on their phones, along with Android apps. Apple has also agreed to port their popular iWork office suite as well as Garage Band to Android.

    For its part, Google has agreed to share part of its advertising revenues from searches made on iPhones, with Apple.

    Scroll down for more information about this exciting deal.


























    Apple Fools!
