    ;))

    Joke aside, for Google Search, Bing can more or less take place. For Gmail, we have plenty other choices. And plenty of them are privacy focus.

    Only YouTube is hard to find an alternative, considering the huge investment to maintain all of that streaming infrastructure.

            If governments were not filled with brainless individuals, who only want other peoples hard work & money as their own: they could have produced a similar type of corporation and NOT winched. Don't pay the fines and cut off their use of Google sites.

                  Apple been trying to take down all competition and doubt they will stop any time soon. Biggest competitor Huawei is out of the way, growing Xiaomi is on sight and well Google, that Apple always like to copy.

                      Someone please enlighten me, when a company getting fined millions of dollars for antitrust or capitalism, to whom they should pay this sum of money? To government or the second party or both?

                        Very well done France ! Hope this will start happening more often.

                          Europeans are unable to innovate on their own, so they need to gather income from fining foreign companies haha

                            Countries and the peple behind the countries i.e. Government, President, Prime M inister etc shouldnt be afraid of such companies and should fine them ever more.
                            Every penny in caselike this helps country to grow and money spent will help to make things in country flows and works to satisfy its citizens in a good deeds.
                            Luike for example better public transport.

                                  more countries need to sue more big companies, if they don't they will they're untouchable and will continue with their shitty ways.
