The EU is open to banning some Google (GOOG) services if settlement talks with the search giant over its integration of complementary services within search results fail, says antitrust chief Joaquin Almunia. Google offered several concessions in April, including offers to separate links for its services within results, and to display links for rival services. But Almunia stated last month he plans to demand more concessions following harsh feedback from Google rivals. (FTC letter) (EU Android probe)

    It used to be that America led the way in freedom, privacy and democracy. Not so much any more, due to uninformed voters. Now it is the EU for privacy at least. Not sure about freedom and democracy since they are being strangled everywhere people are too lazy to understand that free services means the eventual loss of freedom.
