Google compromising itself? I still do not think so

Filed under: Uncategorized — ctrambler @ 2:57 pm

Mr Cooper wrote that Google had compromised with the EU the way Microsoft did not. It is a view point that is vastly different from mine.

Right now, I am willing to  give Google the benefit of doubt that it does nothing wrong. It is from my experience with Google search services. I do not  feel that Google is biased towards its own services. Me and most of my friends do not normally use Google’s own service to do our purchases.

From that standpoint I believe Google is taking the pragmatic approach. The complain from its competitors appears to be not on merit, but simply they cannot compete with Google. Nonetheless, the EC do want to ensure that this is not the case. If a compromise is to be made, why not?

Microsoft did resist. However, it did not do it because it needs to stand its ground. That, I can respect. It did it to gain advantage and even when it was told to, either by US Department of Justice or the European Commission, it refused to. In fact, the latest saga is its appeal was turned down by European Union’s General Court of Justice. In that saga, expect Microsoft to appeal  that decision.
