Business Briefs: WiFi on Delta flights, and why Apple defaults to Google

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Here's a look at your top business and tech headlines from Cheddar on News 12:

Coming up this week on Wall Street, we'll see earnings from JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Citi Group and Delta.

On the subject of Delta, free WiFi could be coming soon to the airline's flights. Speaking at the Skift Global summit, the company's CEO noted that people can get free WiFi everywhere except planes, and he says he wants to change that. He said wireless upgrades would also change in-flight entertainment, as tablets are easier to service than hard-wired monitors. But he didn't provide a timeline for the free service.

There's a reason why when you search on an iPhone that Google automatically pops up. It's because Google pays billions of dollars a year to be Apple's default search browser. Business Insider reports that thee fee is more than $9 billion a year. Apple makes more on that deal than total fees from iCloud and Apple Music combined.

And actress Olivia Wilde is taking her talents behind the camera. She just wrapped her directorial debut, and she spoke with Cheddar about the importance of diversity in filmmaking.
