Japan unleashes regulation Kaiju on Apple's and Google's app store monopolies

Google crippled microSD card performance 'for security.' Offline maps can't use them anymore unless you use an alternate app store, and possibly ADB commands.

I've had the Google Play Store overwrite my F-Droid OsmAnd with it's own crippled version without permission TWICE, and both while I was on vacation in a place where Google Maps has nothing but paid promotions.
