Google Last week, when Microsoft's attempt at buying Yahoo stranded, Steve Ballmer specifically mentioned Google, and how a possible deal between Google and Yahoo would limit choice and competition in the marketplace. Google explained yesterday how it would fend off possible antritrust concerns following an ad-sharing deal with Yahoo. In addtion, Google noted the irony in Microsoft's complaints.

This is an interesting debate and I always thought anyone in an utterly dominant market position is a monopoly by basically establishing standards within that industry.

Alternatively the company which creates barriers to forestall the change in standards is not just a monopoly but stifler of competition.

I think thats where Google and Microsoft differ.
