Apple has once again taken a dig at arch rival and Internet giant Google by putting up a billboard reading “Were in the business of staying out of yours”, right next to Sidewalk Labs’ new headquarters in Toronto.

Sidewalk Labs is a subsidiary of Alphabet that also owns Google.

“Sidewalk Labs has published a three-volume Master Innovation and Development Plan (MIDP) proposal on how to develop Toronto’s eastern waterfront.
