Internet & Networking Earlier this month, news got out that the European Commission is charging Microsoft with unlawful competition regarding its bundling of the Internet Explorer web bowser with Windows. At the time, information was scarce, but thanks to Microsoft's quarterly filing at the Securities and Exchange Commission. we now have a little more insight into what the EU might force Microsoft to do.

The EU targeting a US company under the pretext of "antitrust."
This hardly qualifies as news. The easiest way for Microsoft, Intel, Google and Apple to counter these attacks is to convince the US to launch similar "antitrust" investigations of STMicro, ABB, Siemens, Nokia and Volkswagen. The US will shake down these EU based companies for billions and then reimburse Microsoft, Intel, Google and Apple for the legal fees they've incurred fighting these clearly meritorious EU's investigations. Rinse and repeat as necessary.
