EU demands Google change its mobile services
But anti-trust talks might break down
EU anti-trust watchdogs are demanding that Google makes broad changes to its mobile services. Talks to settle an antitrust investigation are being carried out behind closed doors in the hope of avoiding an expensive trial.
EU Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia wants to reach a settlement with Google which may face formal charges if concessions about its business practices are not made.
According to observers Google might just say sod it and go to court. Talks are on a "knife-edge" and their future will be decided next week. Google has submitted revised proposals to the European Commission after pressure from the EU watchdog to answer complaints about its business practices.
