re: Android's A 'Trojan Horse,' Microsoft-Backed Group Charges
Many people have gmail and gotten very used to Google's many services. If others want to compete in smartphones it behooves them to create a comparatively better device and OS that gives a better UX to use those Google services that they have gotten used to.. Either that or somehow build something that tops Google's many services on their own devices. Which at this point would be extremely difficult for any company unless they focus nearly all of their resources towards that goal. (looking sideways at Apple and MS.) I think the opponents have it reversed, It is not Android that is the trojan horse, rather it is the best integration of Google Services that is the trojan horse pushing Android.

WHAT? I said, "WHAT?"

Back when this internet thingie was just starting to really catch on (mid 90s), the major office supply chain at which I worked was getting $50 a pop for Netscape Navigator. Then there appears a free browser called Internet Explorer. That put an end to NN, and IE became the de facto standard.

With the shoe on the other foot, Microsoft apparently feels threatened by a free operating system. So now it's wrong to give something away for free?

What hypocrisy!

Microsoft is an expert on predatory pricing....

So how much of a stretch will it be before they apply this to Ubuntu Linux and/or any other flavor of Linux.

Microsoft needs to go away. In flames.

Fairsearch is a bunch of bullies just trying to take out Google so they can make their own billions of dollars. Google isn't doing anything wrong with their search services or android yet somehow all of these dreamed up issues are front and center and the pushover European Union is actually considering all of it even though it has already been thrown out by the FTC... what a load of crock...
