Google Poised To Settle EU Anti-Trust Probe 55

Rambo Tribble writes "Reuters is reporting that concessions by the Internet giant have paved the way for a resolution to the long-standing European Union investigation into Google's alleged anti-competitive practices. From the article: 'A settlement with the European Union's regulator would mean that Google, the world's biggest internet search engine, would escape a possible fine of as much as $5 billion or 10 percent of its 2012 revenue. Such an outcome would mirror the company's success in the United States last year where it received only a mild reprimand from the Federal Trade Commission, which said Google had not manipulated its website results following a 19-month investigation.'"

    It is unacceptable that the world's searching and data-mining technology is for the better part originating from one country.
    (Yes, this means more projects like [])

    I'm still waiting for a P2P search engine that is efficient, secure, and returns useful results.

You have a tendency to feel you are superior to most computers.
