In January of this year I asked if Eric Schmidt is cozying up to President Obama to protect a Google Monopoly. I took some flak for the post but the reality is the reality – the company seems to be taking over every facet of tech from book readers to voice to video to unified communications to cloud computing to photo sharing to video serving to office applications. Should I go on? How about turn-by-turn GPS?
OK, I’ll stop but that won’t stop others like the Chicago Tribune from picking up where I left off and asking serious questions such as whether Google’s ability to use its revenue from its monopoly position in search to wipe away competition in other industries is fair or not.
