  1. Proof that the fine imposed wasn’t that much serious.

  2. They probably make way more with the data than the fine will ever be. They’ll continue shady practices just like all the banks do. They should target the people and put them in jail, not fine the company if they actually want them to stop.

  3. Google will still continue to do this shady data collecting stuff. I wonder when will the EU get into the bloatware shit Google puts on Android devices because, honestly, I’m super annoyed with the fact that I can’t uninstall Chrome from my phone.

  4. That’ll be paid off pretty easily

  5. I want the US to form the **A**merican **N**ational **A**nti-trust **L**iaison so I can see the headline “Google is facing an ANAL probe about…”

  6. Turns out if your fine isn’t at all punitive they’ll just roll it in to being part of the cost of business. They made a lot more than $1.7 billion for what they did that got them fined $1.7 billion.

  7. Seems like every month we see a story like this. This is how google and facebook work. They use data and serve ads. that’s their whole business model. Why is this a big deal in 2019?

  8. Yeah let’s fine a multi billion business with money.. Not even a slap on the wrist if you ask me

    That’s like me getting a 5$ fine for spying on someone 24\7 on every aspect in their lives

  9. Would those questionnaires contain open-ended or option questions in unbiased ways, or could some questions be framed in a way to induce only Google-negative answers? You know, silent manipulation to ensure Google gets bad feedbacks overall (only discussing about general/open questions, not all). Just curious, as the exact content of questionnaires is not given.
