    [–] Google faces record EU fine over Shopping service SharkGlue -1 points ago in technology

    They show their shopping results at the top of their own page - which are paid ads.

    No, above links labeled ads, they will often have a scroll bar linking to other stores. This is the issue. They have put they're Price Comparison Store front and centre and relegated competitors to the back pages.

    You don't pay google to search

    You pay with Data, this is the case in the eyes of the EU.

    This is like if there was a tv channel that was the best and all other tv channels were so terrible that very few people used them. So, that's not "fair" therefore the government should make ABC play NBC's ads for free.

    The EU holds near monopolies to a higher standard than smaller competitors. Google is more like a TV maker that will only show you it's channels, and they owned 90% of the TV making business. To use your analogy

    But BRAND1 is clearly better. They are so good to their consumers compared to asshole BRAND2

    So how would a monopoly like Google do in a Free Market? Let the little guys grow? Or crush then?

    No silly, this was specifically about Price comparison shopping sites. Not all sites.

    If only Granddad would not make vague gripes about something. I can google the definition of Monopoly, but that gives me a little insight into what my "generation doesn't understand". A link or even a book title would be nice

    -.- you're taking this as a comment on EU

    You were making a disparaging remark about a specific person who works for the EU. Do your words hold no meaning?

    If the EU had mandated certain specific changes you'd be bitching about government overreach. Maybe your government is shit, but the EU has been overall excellent for its citizens.

    How is Google controlling what you see better?

    [–] Google faces record EU fine over Shopping service SharkGlue 7 points ago in technology

    Not about ads. They always put their price comparison service at the top of the page, while others were pushed to the fourth page of results.

    They mark very clearly what is an ad in the search results. So I know what to skip

    In the short term, some natives may lose work but the number is not statistically significant. In the long term, immigration boosts the economy, by creating more jobs and more markets

    Except, most jobs held by illegals are not wanted by citizens. They're usually the hardest jobs such as harvesting fruit.

    From a European study:"Our results show no evidence of natives and immigrants substitutability in the Portuguese labour market. The overall strong complementarity result, i.e., that immigrants do not displace natives"

    Removing millions would devastate industries, in particular farming.

    "This worker decline by itself would reduce private industry output by between $381.5 billion and $623.2 billion."

    This doesn't account for the spending force of illegals which would shrink businesses further.

    If only we could figure out why.

    Trump is a national and international laughing stock and Obama is respected. Easy to laugh at the clown, and good for ratings

    Most voted for Trump because they thought he would shake things up, and that Clinton would be more stable continuing on with Obamas policies. So how would she have destabilised the US?
