A few (non-exhaustive) points that caught my attention while reading the new Google antitrust case – U.S. version.

Link: justice.gov/opa/press-rele….
1– Although the background part talks quite a lot about "specialized search providers such as Amazon, Expedia, or Yelp", the part about anti-competitive practices is solely about (potential) foreclosure against other general search engines. Weird.
2– This is not an accurate portrait of how tech companies work. There's no certainty in digital markets – as shown by Google numerous failures (you know, Google Glass, Google+, Hangouts…). For an empirical work illustrating this point, see @competitionprof latest book.

Yeah, don't anyone hold their breath. #othershoewilldrop
