Google "Google is offering major concessions on how it displays search results in Europe - including a better labeling of its own promoted content and displaying links to its competitors - to appease concerns it might be abusing its dominant market position, the European Union's antitrust body said Thursday." Smart. Takes the wind right out of Microsoft's sails.

Microsoft was using the EU as a club. Microsoft threw a load of garbage at the wall to see what would stick. But Google easily side stepped it. What this did do though was bolster Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.
