It'll be like the browser choice fiasco

What's Internet Explorer's market share again? This, and even more the unbundling of the media player from Windows did provide the framework for more consumer choice. Otherwise by now most online video would probably be DRM'd WMV or MOV.

The judgement doesn't have to mean the demise of Google, just as the ruling against Microsoft meant the demise of MS; in fact it's earning more than ever and that's despite fucking up mobile internet completely.

So, what we need are more rulings against such vertical integration. Roll on alternative app stores, music players and browsers for IOS devices…
