>EU antitrust authorities are gearing up to fine Alphabet Inc. GOOGL, -0.35% GOOG, -0.24% up to $11 billion over antitrust issues related to its Android operating system, according to a report Wednesday in the Financial Times. Alphabet class A shares are down 0.9% in mid-afternoon trading and closed at $1,151.02 Tuesday. Margrethe Vestager, the EU's competition commissioner, is expected to announce the fine within several weeks but the exact size of the fine wasn't clear, according to anonymous sources cited by the FT.

>The EU announced the antitrust case in 2016 and accused the advertising giant of imposing licensing conditions for the Android OS that favored Google's products and apps over rivals. The EU argued that these activities, among others, amounted to making it more difficult to develop competing web browsers and other operating systems, which ultimately would reduce innovation and give consumers fewer choices.

See that actually concerns me a lot. We're going straight back to 2006 when everything was DirectX only because it was the only robust graphics API windows really supported, and then OpenGL 4.1 finally came around and made it not shit and suddenly everything supported both. Now we're going straight fucking back to DirectX only.

It's a good start. But it's a "and what next?" sort of ordeal; the only way to really hurt Google is to exponentially increase fines if requirements are not met.

I agree, its the very definition of monopolistic behavior and it confuses the crap out of me that Google, whose services work everywhere on everything is on the EU's shitlist, while Microsoft whose services only work on Windows somehow escapes with slaps on the wrist constantly.
Have they ever considered the reason why Google wins is they aren't tying their services to their devices?
If I want to play DirectX games I need Windows, if I want to use iTunes I need a Mac, if I want to use Gmail or Play Video it works on anything.

If they wanted to really put a stop to anti-competitive behavior they would require the use of open standards.

That view, while understandable, breaks essentially the entire canon state philosophy and excludes you from political debate, making it ultimately gimping. The most defining aspect of a state is that individuals give up on the notion arbitrary freedoms to know their freedoms with respect to others secured.

It's different:
>Apple does not have the vast majority of the marketshare like Google does
>Apple sells their phones and their OS directly, Google only provides the Google Services package, since Android is open source, it's up to OEMs to provide Android and modify it to work on porting them
>Google forces OEMs to include the full Google suite or they can't use Google Services in their devices: Google Chrome, Google Play Music, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Gmail, etc.
What this means is that devices either end up with duplicated programs (i.e. Samsung phones come with two browsers: Chrome and the Samsung ones) or that devices will come only with the Google ones.
>Google used to force OEMs to only sell devices with the Android operating system
This is one of the reasons why no OEMs offered phones with Windows Phone, Ubuntu Touch, Firefox OS or Sailfish OS.

>The EU announced the antitrust case in 2016 and accused the advertising giant of imposing licensing conditions for the Android OS that favored Google's products and apps over rivals. The EU argued that these activities, among others, amounted to making it more difficult to develop competing web browsers and other operating systems, which ultimately would reduce innovation and give consumers fewer choices.

It's absolutely true. Google forces the android licensees to ship their default apps like chrome, gmail and youtube. Bundling stuff isn't illegal, but when you have a monopoly position it might be.

You know what pisses me off?
Google never got sued for their dick move back when Windows Phone was still relevant (in Europe it had 10% marketshare).
They abused their market position by not only not providing official apps for Windows Phone, but also by releasing dummy apps (e.g. a Youtube "app" that is just a link to the website), preventing others from making replacement apps (Microsoft made a really good Youtube app, which they had to take down after Google got offended) and purposefully gimping their websites by delivering Windows Phones the wrong versions of those sites or just locking them out entirely based on user agent.

That was blatantly monopolistic behavior and yet they got away scott-free.
I really fucking hope they get fucked as deep in the ass as possible.

Also, fuck Microsoft for giving up on Windows Phone. It was the ideal compromise between iOS and Android, before they first made it more than Android and then just dropped it like a hot potato. Not to mention the gaslighting of the userbase, where promises of updates and upgrades were broken all the fucking time.

Good luck trying to get any apps whatsoever without allowing google to rape your privacy with google services since the play store is not accessible without it.

Even if it is technically possible to install things without the play store, they purposefully make it a giant pain in the ass to force your compliance and the average faggot won't bother so it's the civilian equivalent of a gun to your head.

They do have the last word on the budget and they appoint/vote the Commission, which is basically the EU government.

Bear in mind though that the EU is not a country / state, so it still looks like half international organisation and half politico-economic entity (similar to a state).
