Google’s single best line of defense

November 8, 2011

Dan Kaplan at TechCrunch translates what is the real meaning of Google Chairman Eric Schmidt’s words* to the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy, and Consumer Rights:

“You don’t have to fear our power, Google says, because something will inevitably come along and take it from us.”

Meaning that the government should stop asking about privacy issues, and stop looking into the unfair competition acts done by Google, in a nutshell; leave us alone because we’re falling. That is so naïve.

* Note: Just in case you’re wondering what Eric Scmidt’s original line is: “History shows that popular technology is often supplanted by entirely new models.”
