Apple deserves a fine from the European Union, too

The very big fine that the European Union has inflicted on Google could seriously undermine the future of the most widespread operating system in the world.

It does seem that whatever arguments Google could come up with to suggest that Android users can exercise choice - such as having 1,300 brands powered by Andriod with 24,000 different devices and device owners being able to remove preloaded apps and replace them, this will not mollify Magrethe Vestager.

According to a report when Google was asked about the upcoming plans then a Google executive said in a statement: "Fuchsia is one of many experimental open source projects at Google".

Vestager said the firm's practices have "denied rivals the chance to innovate and compete on the merits".

Android is technically an open-source operating system that Google lets cellphone makers use for free. The operating system is expected to run on the ARM64 and x86-64 platforms, and due to its diversity and adaptability in framework, it is considered to be a revolutionary forth coming system that can run on any device ranging from the tiniest of chips to the largest of PC computers. Among those with an opinion to share is none other than Donald Trump who used the fine as a way to paint the USA as a victim at the hands of Europe. The US is now also considering taxes on imports of European cars. Well, The giant search engine Google Images sure thinks so. "I do work with tax and I am a woman so that is 100% correct", she said, but added: "I very much like the U.S.".
