Google to stop treating EU antitrust remedy as a “promotional opportunity”:

Google and the European Union have been fighting for several years over Android's default search engine. Just like when the EU took issue with Microsoft bundling Internet Explorer with Windows, the EU Antitrust enforcers don't want Google using its Android operating system monopoly to prop up Google Search and Google Chrome. The solution the EU came to—just like it did with Windows—is a "ballot" system that pops up during setup and asks users to pick a starting browser and search engine from a list. The only problem? Google was charging companies to appear in this list. It was basically an ad vector. In a blog post this week, Google says it will stop doing that.

    Europe, being run by Jews, only gets cranky about "oppression" only when they're not getting their share of the cut. They're actually worse than even America when it comes to civil liberties. Europe is end-stage Judaism running Goy societies, and if America doesn't start gutting Jews from powerful positions, its fate will be the same. Gentiles will be cutted and gutted in the streets, while Jew-placed authoritarians legalize violence against Gentiles while catching-and-releasing felonious illegals and other criminals.
