Windows The moment Microsoft announced it would lock other browsers out of being installed on Windows RT, we all knew regulatory bodies the world over were wringing their hands. Today, this has been confirmed: in the wake of an investigation into Microsoft not complying with the existing antitrust rulings regarding browser choice, the EU has also announced it's investigating Windows 8 x86 and Windows 8 RT (ARM).

Putting aside the slightly conspiracy theorist nature of that post, Im inclined to agree. As a citizen of the UK, I believe I speak for most of us brits when I say that we too are tired of the EU sticking its nose into every little thing that really doesnt concern them, while ignoring or glossing over the fact that an increasing number of influential EU member states are on the verge of bankruptcy and the Euro currency is losing value by the day. While Im not one to defend large corporations, least of all Microsoft, I am getting tired of the beurocratic nonsense that is the EU getting involved in something that nobody but their 3 members is concerned about. And while Im on the subject of corporations, Apple need to quit being little girls and back off of Samsung and Google too and deal with the fact that Android is no longer the inferior new kid on the block, but a serious and quite impressive contender for the mobile space. And thats from an Apple fan.
