Happy Friday!
My favorite article this week is the Google Search Result analysis by Markup.
Google is facing possibly multiple antitrust lawsuits from the federal government and many states is up in the air.
Why? Google is more likely to prominently show information or advertisements from its own computer systems or scraped from other companies’ websites — and keep you within Google’s digital walls. Google isn’t a front door to the internet anymore. It’s the house.
Another issue is Google planting its familiar search box everywhere. It’s the built-in search function on iPhones — a prime spot for which Google pays Apple billions of dollars each year. And in many cases, Google has deals to ensure that its search box has a pole position on Android smartphones.
Same question here: Do Google’s actions unfairly hold back competition?
Here are the top mobile news this week >
