Re: Apple

If manufactures don't want to use android they should go and do what google did and build their own OS.

The problem they have with Google is leveraging their dominance in smartphone OSes to further their massive dominance in online search and advertising. What usually triggers these type of actions (especially in the EU which is more aggressive policing it than the US) is that sort of leveraging. Just having a dominant market share isn't a problem if you aren't using it to control other markets.
