Google claims that Bing is stealing their search results and Microsoft isn’t denying the accusation. By assigning bogus queries to specific sites, Google caught Bing in the act. Strings of random letters bring up the same results on both search engines, but not until Google had assigned them to specific pages. In other news, AT&T is facing a lawsuit that states iPhone customers are being overcharged for data usage. Tests on brand new phones with no services installed were still charged for over 2MB of data. AT&T’s billing software has come under scrutiny before and this time it could be responsible for millions of dollars in charges. And finally, iPhone 4 pre-orders will be made available to existing Verizon customers starting February 3rd. If you’re making the switch from AT&T, Verizon will give you $212 trade-in credit for a 16GB iPhone 4 and $285 for the 32GB model. Have an older generation iPhone? They’ll take those too.
