NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple (APPL) sucker punched Google (GOOG - Get Report) again -- at least if you believe a lot of media coverage about the latest turn in the hair-pulling fight between the two Silicon Valley giants.Apple released a test version of its coming iOS 6 operating system for iPhones and iPads without Google's YouTube app, which has been there from the start and, at least according to some media accounts, left the spurned Google struggling to react. The five-year deal will expire without renewal.
