Re: The Attrition Game

Fun fact: NOBODY knew what an acceptable solution looked like, and only Google was working to find one. It was in all the other parties interests to not agree they found one.

It's obvious; any solution that does not impose conditions that abuse a monopoly position would be acceptable. So, that means offering Google Play Services to all and sundry, not just those that agree to make Chrome, Google Search, Google Maps, etc the default burned-in un-removable tools, prominently placed on the main screen in specific positions.

This action by the EU is starting to head in the direction of preventing Google from using Android as a user tracking / monitoring system. And that would be a very good thing.
