The largest search engine in the world has recently had a good talking to the European Commission. The matter is that the latter declared that Google has only a few weeks to come clean on accusations about abusing its dominance.
Joaquin Almunia, the competition policy chair of the European Commission, wrote a letter to Google boss Eric Schmidt, telling him about the concerns of the European Union. Now the European Commission is hoping that Google resolves all their concerns without any further measures.
But the experts point at the major problem of the search giant: no amount of threats really bother Google too much: they tend to be fines, and the company has more money than sense.
Joaquin Almunia claimed that restoring competition to the benefit of Internet users at an early stage is preferable to length proceedings, but these sometimes may become indispensable to competition enforcement. The competition policy chair of the EC said that the company has repeatedly told the European Commission that it wants to discuss its concerns. This is why he decided to give Google a chance to offer remedies to address the concerns that have already been identified.
For example, the European Commission is worried about the search giant promoting its own services in search way ahead of the competition. This issue has been discussed a lot in the press, but Google doesn’t seem to be willing to change things.
Meanwhile, Joaquin Almunia promised that if the company wants to cooperate and drafts a list of remedies, the European Commission will dedicate its staff to initiate discussions and finalize a remedies package.

|get a grip|
soon .. there will be only few giants havin 90% of the net in their pockets
- sure, google is great search engine, probably the best there is (and FREE),
but I don't like the idea, that Google or MS or Facebook will own most services
that overage John Smith uses on a daily basis, just because that would mean less
competition and eventually lack of it. It's never good thing, ya know ?
Therefore I would like to see everyone obeying the same (EU) laws.
And If not, be prepared to pay and work on other solution in the mean time.
Google became so popular, cause it was fast and show A LOT more results than the others.
Now ... there are few pages of "sponsored" links first and it doesn't show all results...
that's far away from a point of start for me ... and not in the right direction.
anyway cheers for the reed SAM

|haha juat seen other article about Google -- qoute ---|
A specialist in data protection from Germany has made Google reveal all of the information
that Google have been collecting from millions of German’s while mapping their country
with the use the of Google Street car.
Not only were the cars taking pictures and mapping the streets and surrounding areas
but they were also scooping up information from unsecured wireless internet connections.
Google alleged that it was an error with the computer software used and that it included some
developmental software unintentionally installed in the street car's computer programming.
The collected data included:
- Internet search history
- website postings
and more --- end of qoute
Hail Google, all torrent folks, cause it is !!

they were told to stop it
