I’m perpetually amused that Xeni’s go-to graphic for legal stories has the Chase bank logo on the bottoms of the pans of Justice’s scales.


the company abused its dominance of online search and advertising to crush competition and maximize profit

But isn’t that the whole point of Google’s existence? Colour me unsurprised.


Can Google counter-sue the U.S. government for providing contracts to companies who hire lobbyists and implements outright nepotism when it comes to IT? If not (no standing), then it doesn’t seem to be a fair playing field.

I’m not using Bing for multiple reasons, but it shows there is an alternative option…

Here the rabble comes
The kind you hoped were dead
They’ve come to chop, to chop, chop, chop, chop, chop, chop off your head

I can but hope. Maybe a fool’s hope…

I use Firefox, Brave, DuckDuckGo and Safari for my browsers on my iOS devices, with DuckDuckGo for search with all of them.
I do use Google occasionally, very occasionally, not sure there’s an antitrust issue with search, because there are alternatives; however, I’m certain that Google abuse their position by accepting bribes to ensure search dominance, which needs to be stopped.
