Re: I feel fortunate

Google has the power here and yet they act like the victims.

I'd like to note here that Google got fined billions by the EU for wielding that very same power you want them to use now.

Well, they used that power to force phone makers to preinstall Google apps like Chrome and YouTube and Google Maps, but the mechanism is the same. I'm not sure that "the ACLU made me do it" is a valid counter to EU regulations.
