Google Slapped With $2.7 Billion Fine in Europe Over Online Searches

1 hour ago

Alphabet Inc. — the parent company of multifaceted tech giant Google — has been hit with a massive €2.4 billion ($2.7 billion) fine by the European Union’s antitrust regulator for favoring its own shopping service over competitors in search results. The penalty was more than double the previous record for an EU fine, when Intel was slapped with a €1.06 billion fine in 2009. “Google abused its market dominance as a search engine by promoting its own comparison shopping service in its search results, and demoting those of competitors,” said Margrethe Vestager, the EU’s antitrust chief. “What Google has done is illegal under EU antitrust. »

‘The Keeping Hours’ Review: Carrie Coon and Lee Pace Grieve, Repetitively

10 hours ago

As “The Keeping Hours” begins, seven years have passed since the death of Mark (Lee Pace) and Elizabeth’s (Carrie Coon) child. Six years have passed since the once-happy couple split. These are unpleasant anniversaries, which doesn’t make them any less difficult to remember, or to forget. In the interim, Elizabeth has done what she could to move forward: She buried herself in writing a book, detailing her experiences with death and rebirth. On the other side, she found a new husband, two children, and a white picket fence. Her picturesque vision of adulthood has remained intact. Conversely, Mark has slipped into. »

Larry Flynt Might Help John Oliver Win Lawsuit Over Foul-Mouthed Squirrel Gag

14 hours ago
