The European Commission says bundling certain Google apps into Android could be illegal
The European Commission yesterday stated that they had begun an investigation into Google to find out if they have breached competition laws in their relationship with the Android operating platform.
This investigation has three main points, all related to whether Google is unfairly using its position to establish itself ahead of its rivals.
In an official memo, the Commission says it is looking into whether the pre-installation of Google apps, such as Maps and Chrome, on Android smartphones has ‘illegally hindered the development and market access of rival mobile applications or services.’

Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows. Starring Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”), Oscar® winner Charlize Theron (“Monster,” “Prometheus”), Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: Days of Future Past”), Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max,” “Sleeping Beauty”) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”).
