If you have choices the monopoly in this case doesn’t exist. You can choose wherever search engine you like by default and if not you can [ very low ] you can search directly in the rest of the search engines. Same with the browser. Customer always choose e the best. In the beginning of the must demanding service of Internet search was [ and today] crucial. Altavista was the dominant player. Then Inkitomi. Suddenly in a dorm at Stanford University to graduate student solve the basic defect of this search engines with better rank algorithm: Ruby was born and renamed as Google. A new search engine in the future? For sure yes. May in some place a couple of genius or inside other company something even better begins.
The real battle as usual is in the capability to attract, hire and buy the greatest minds in this field.
BTW the DoJ must act favoring the customers.

What other search engine is worth using, I use DuckDuckGo? It’s interesting DOJ is not going after Alphabet.

You can change the default search engine, but can you prevent the people from changing the default to Google's search engine? Apple knows that majority of the users will switch to Google even if they set another service as the default search engine. So, why not go for a deal that yeilds easy money and satisfies the customers too?

Google has by far the best search engine. It's not a matter of monopoly, it's just that no one else comes near the quality of their search results. And it's not that a small company can come along and surpass them in the near future. A search engine at this level needs infrastructure, a lot of data and processing power. Only a few companies in the world have those capabilities, and they're all huge, they all raise monopoly concerns already. You could make them sell youtube or gmail, but that wouldn't solve this particular problem.

Watching WSJ videos about collusion and monopoly practices is like listening to the NFL talk about Colin Kaepernick…lol

Izix X December 17, 2020 - 9:21 PM

So the tech industry works as an Oligopoly. No news here.

王虎知 December 17, 2020 - 9:27 PM

While you hate apple so much yet google will make sure it will be alive to keep monopolies

Better title, How Apple and Google became a grotesque duopoly of evil.

If Google would just kill Google AMP, then I’d switch back to Google. Right now I’ll keep using Duck Duck Go.

Ervin Tagoe December 18, 2020 - 12:30 AM

Google is the absolute best search engine in the world. Period! The antitrust lawsuit is BS!

Keirnoth December 18, 2020 - 12:31 AM

Section 230 and antitrust pls. Break these up.

Why question google's default on Safari and not Safari's default on Apple?

DogCatCow Chicken December 18, 2020 - 1:29 AM

I already think Apple and Android have flipped rolls Android's expensive Apple's cheap

Francesco Varrato December 18, 2020 - 2:08 AM

Wondering how much of this duopoly could be avoided by just making these companies pay their due taxes in the countries they operate in.

Daniel Pan December 18, 2020 - 2:45 AM

Ewww News Corp. No wonder they complained.

prospecops December 18, 2020 - 2:55 AM

The problem is no one wants to use the second best search engine, just look at bing with its number one search being 'Google'. I personally think there should be a tech monopoly and status quo maintained, but it needs to have a lot more government oversight and transparency in regards to what their doing.

Emmanuel Olumide December 18, 2020 - 3:06 AM

What annoyed me is how they push ads to every streamed video

cheapcigar December 18, 2020 - 3:36 AM

Awesome

All the iPhones screens are made by Samsung yet they’re each other’s rival.

Daniël December 18, 2020 - 5:04 AM

DOJ: GOOGLE, DID YOU ORDER THE CODE RED?!
Judge: You don’t have to answer that question.
Google: I’ll answer the question.
You want answers?
DOJ: I think I’m entitled too
Google: YOU WANT ANSWERS?
DOJ: I want the truth!
Google: YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

Dhruvil Naik December 18, 2020 - 7:00 AM

And there are android and apple users arguing over which is better??

Mohamed Baradji December 18, 2020 - 7:16 AM

Idc what anyone says, Apple is pretty bad. Siri, Apple Maps and safari should be way better for the expensive products they’re on. I’m glad google was able to make a partnership because chrome is better than safari, Siri is a joke, and Apple Maps sucks for telling you information about the places you want to go to. -coming from an iPhone user.
