For one thing, the Europeans don't see why they can't do better than these American firms. After all, how hard could it actually be to develop a search engine? It's child's play. Thus, the Google dominance must have to do with onerous business practices.

Why should the EU be telling Americans how to run their businesses? As it now stands, every merger coming up has to be discussed with the EU in mind. Will the EU let two American companies merge? Will it? Won't it? Fret, fret, fret.
Hey! What does the EU have to do with it?
And yes, this whole situation is a pet peeve of mine. Microsoft should tell the EU to shove it.
