---- Google given EU anti-trust deadline

This change in tone is very peculiar to me, Google has already been addressing the complaints since day one. EU regulators promising to end the investigation if they get a text from Google is plain bizarre. It smells like the decision is done and paid for already tbh and this delay is a formality. It all sounds great but makes no real sense.
EU competition commissioner Joaquin Almunia said he had "decided to continue with the process towards reaching an agreement" to settle the investigation.
There you go, innocent for lack of gumption to get to the bottom of the question. That's impressive considering this was the F.T.C.
restrictions on advertisers from moving their online ad campaigns to rival search engines
Where did that come from? They start out going after google and now want to limit the advertisers instead? Bizarre...
