Dipshit: Microsoft vs. Google

Someone broke somebody’s toys on the playground last Tuesday. Microsoft is getting a taste of it’s own silicon hidden valley ranch dressing by suing Google over antitrust matters. Microsoft whines alleges that Google is pushing it and other 4 competitors out of the European Market. The European companies that have joined in the anticompetition lawsuit include UK price comparison site Foudem and the German shopping site Ciao, which is currently owned by Microsoft.

In an article by Andrew Couts featured on Digital Trends.com, Microsoft says that Google refuses to share it’s toys by giving preference to its own search engines and not allowing Microsoft search engines, like Bing and Yahoo, to perform fully informed searches. In human speak this basically means searches made on Bing instead of Google will result in half-ass information, specifically when it comes to YouTube.

Ah! How quickly memory fades with the passage of time. Wasn’t it just a little over 10 years ago that Microsoft was slapped with a similar hand of truth? Do we not remember anti-trust laws being invented FOR Microsoft, who at the time was considered one of the biggest monopolies in history? Perhaps a time out will do these two companies a world of good. Or we can follow the wisdom of Michael McDonald
