EU case against Google centers on value of price comparison sites
Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:52:28 -0400


EU accusations that Google is abusing its dominant position in web searching to favor its own sites over rivals' center on a controversy nearly as old as the Web itself: do shopping comparison sites help consumers to make better choices, or do they simply link to other sites they don't control? Google has long held the lion's share of the market for how consumers search for websites in most countries. These complaints focus on the constantly evolving formulas Google uses to determine which web links rank higher on its search result pages in terms of value to users. Since 2009, a dozen European and U.S. companies have protested to the EU about their treatment by Google.

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 07:01:59 -0500


It has often been said that women follow fashion more to compete with other women than to look attractive to men, but if the preferences of the poor neglected male were accorded greater attention, there is no doubt that fashion trends would favour the fuller female figure.
