Microsoft Concerned about 'Weak and Unusual' FTC-Google Settlement

DavidGilbert99 (2607235) writes | about a year and a half ago

Google 1

DavidGilbert99 writes "Google response to the conclusion of the FTC's antitrust investigation was unsurprisingly positive:

"The conclusion is clear: Google's services are good for users and good for competition."

Microsoft's negative outlook at the deal was equally unsurprising:

"The FTC's overall resolution of this matter is weak and-frankly-unusual. We are concerned that the FTC may not have obtained adequate relief even on the few subjects that Google has agreed to address.""

In reality, when it comes around to Microsoft and Google nothing will ever be settled. They will always be fighting to gain market share.

Back when google launched it was a friendly search engine many many years ago and friendly, but now it is just an appalling spy machine for government agencies as is microsoft and microsoft are controlled by the gov and are complicit with cofee https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_Online_Forensic_Evidence_Extractor [wikipedia.org]
or https://www.microsoft.com/government/en-us/pages/default.aspx [microsoft.com]

What I am saying is Google and M$ will prostitute themselves without a care in the world as long as they can rake in some cash from users and this goes all the way up to the highest governmental level in the advent of SOPA PIPA etc.

It is my prediction that Google will merge "" with microsoft within the next two years and Yahoo will side or merge with facebook.
