Trump slapped tariffs on steel and aluminium imported from the European Union, and is considering extending these to include imported cars. "They truly have taken advantage of the USA, but not for long!" And it's a big reason why President Trump, whether you agree with his tariffs or not (and for the record, we don't), is at least not a hypocrite in imposing them.
Android is an open-source operating system that Google lets cell-phone makers use for free. Now it seems that Android and Chrome OS may soon be replaced by Google's Fuchsia operating system that holds the potential to unite all of its devices under a single operating system umbrella and is seeing increasing investment and capital put into its eager development.
Google's parent company Alphabet now has less than 90 days to alter its business practices or face penalties of up to five percent of its average global daily turnover. This new sanction is said to be near to double than the previous record European Union anti-trust had levied which was about 2.4 billion euros.
As a consumer, I'd like all phone makers, whether their gadgets run Android, the iOS, Samsung's Tizen, Linux or something even more exotic, to offer me a choice of apps. Apple doesn't do that; you can, for example, install Google's Chrome browser and Google Maps on an iPhone, but they won't launch by default when you click on a link in an email or another app.
Google does promote its own services as being optimized for Android, and backed by "cloud" computing capabilities for backing up data and being able to shift seamlessly between devices such as smartphones and laptop computers.
We were already concerned about the impact on the future of Android of the still ongoing Oracle v Google lawsuit.
The European Commission first began scrutinizing Android in April 2015, after a complaint by Fairsearch - a trade group that originally included Microsoft, Nokia and Oracle among its members. An antitrust dispute in Russian Federation, for example, prompted Google to change its design to offer people a choice of search engines when they set up their phones. Vestager added by saying that the commission has made a decision to find the Google about 4.34 billion euros for breaching European Union antitrust rules.
