Thang kod the FTC is protecting us.
Now that big bad google might have to divest itself from anything that isn't "search" or "advertising" and break off those other units, (like little baby Bells).
And all of US consumers will be better off -- um... except that isn't how it works.
"Google" will charge the baby-bells more for advertising on big bell, and the baby bells will charge more for services and products because they have to pay more for advertising, and US consumers will pay more and get less.
When corporations get in bed with government it's the consumer who usually gets phukt. (I think that's the Vietnamese spelling for "capitalism in the name of freedom of choice and democracy" .... at least it was when I looked it up in my DOW Chemical sponsored dictionary).
