Though Google these days has its hand in everything, from robotics to advanced AI, the company’s billions by and large continue to come exclusively from advertising. More to the point, 90% of the $66 billion Google generated in revenue in 2014 came directly from advertising-related ventures Not surprisingly, an increasingly important part of Google’s advertising machine is mobile search. In 2014 alone, 18% of Google’s ad revenue, or about $11.8 billion, came from searches done on mobile devices.

Many Mac users have complained about Wi-Fi issues since installing OS X Yosemite last fall, and Apple issued fixes in maintenance updates supposed to patch the wireless connectivity problems. In spite of those fixes, the problem persisted even after it became increasingly clear what Yosemite component was causing connection drops, and Apple did not publicly address the matter.
