And, by definition, you are a waste of resources and should be torn in half. And fed to the dogs.
Even if Google has a monopoly in some market, they are doing nothing illegal by merely existing. Since you can't grasp this point, you really are too deficient to bother with.
And yet you found time to bother with me. How nice.
I was going to go through and explain every bit of my post so possibly you could understand what I was saying. However, a brief look at your previous posts shows that you are merely a bitter troll who has an axe to grind and has nothing to offer the conversation.

IOW, Google can unintentionally squish something that might have been really cool, and that invisible loss may ultimately not be in the public good.
I don't think there is anything unintentional that occurs when Google squishes a rival product or service. Google knows exactly what will happen when it enters a market that previously existed on a for-profit system and offers services and goodies for free that automatically work with its other services and goodies.
No spitting on the Bus! Thank you, The Mgt.
