European Commission wants Google antitrust reponse in January

The Commission and Google have 'substantially reduced' their differences in how to address concerns

The European Commission has given Google a January deadline to respond to the European competition agency's concerns over alleged antitrust behavior by the company.

The commission expects Google to "come forward with a detailed commitment text" addressing antitrust concerns in January, Joaquín Almunia, the EC's vice president for competition, said in a statement. Alumina met Tuesday with Eric Schmidt, Google's executive chairman, in Brussels.

The EC and Google have "substantially reduced our differences regarding possible ways to address" four competition concerns voiced by the commission, Almunia said.

The commission launched an antitrust investigation of Google in November 2010. Discussions with Google to resolve the commission's concerns began in July.

The commission's concerns include the way Google displays the search results of companies that offer competing services and exclusive agreements for the delivery of Google search advertisements on other websites.

After Google responds in January, the commission will issue a response that could be the basis for formal commitments from the company, Almunia said.

Google, in a statement, said it continues to work cooperatively with the European Commission.

In a statement, Fair Search, a coalition of companies critical of Google, praised the commission "for seeking to extract a binding set of commitments from Google to end biased search results and other potential legal violations he has identified, and to submit that proposal for market testing before determining if it resolves Google's abuse of dominance in Europe."

Eric Schmidt/Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler/Angela Merkel/Ed Feigenbaum/Kaifu Lee, etc. had lost his credibility when he got involved into fascism crimes which had endangered human lives
——————————————————
There is actually a war between fascism and anti-fascism, at this stage, fascism still prevails in our lives, Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler are just front figures we could see in this fascism circle, there is a whole pack of fascists behind them
Eric, as we can see, starting from Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity case on Stanford campus back in 2004, many people, including Gabriele Scheler, Sebastian Thrun, you Eric Schmidt, Professor Ed Feigenbaum of Sebastian Thrun's boss in Stanford Computer Science department, a big donor CCC of Stanford Computer Science department, and also Eric Schmidt’s colleague in China Kaifu Lee, had made contributions to such fascism crimes which had cost human life of Stanford student May Zhou and crimes which had retaliated on victims and almost cost life of the victim as I am …
… … and someone who had provided legal coverage for your fascism crimes, including a powerful officer from Santa Clara DA Office, namely ZZZ (and after ZZZ, another officer YYY), and the officer VVV who’s in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s case and who had further collateralled with your side(suspect Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side) to conspire and curse victims( Stanford, May Zhou, me) in every possible way since 2006 till today; and maybe include the officer RRR who insist on May Zhou’s death as a suicide or accident, even though I had clearly pointed out who’s involved in May Zhou’s murder case …
… … and someone who could provide political support for your fascism crimes, including top politician from the country of Germany whom we all know — Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, and maybe include a retired top politician from UK as well, etc. and more and more to find out later …
—————————————————
I believe, though some names missed out, all names mentioned in the above comment are part of this fascism circle

Q&A about Fascism crimes on land of Palo Alto which Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler/Ed Feigenbaum/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel had involved and which were covered up by certain malicious officers with miscarriage of justice from PaloAltoOnLine DOT COM
===============
Ducatigirl,

Don't try to fool the public;

>>>You are obviously very upset.

You said it; as a victim of a series of fascism crimes, I am further victimized for many years by certain malicious officers in the judicial system ZZZ/YYY/VVV/RRR who chose to join this fascism circle; miscarriage of justice is going on
..........................

>>>how is an extremely intelligent and educated woman like Angela Merkel involved?

--- "extremely intelligent and educated" would not guarntee innocent in an extremely secret and extremely intelligently-plotted crime; I have clearly stated how Angela Merkel involved: during their fight with Stanford over Stanford ruling against criminal activities of Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun/Eric Schmidt;
..........................
>>>what does this have to do with online learning, anyway?
--- Such fascism crimes Sebastian Thrun involved into would not be tolerated anywhere in human society, including in this article; do you want to be taught by someone who had caused killing of an innocent student?
..........................
>>>he has harrassed Eric Scmidt, CEO of Google, claiming that he is trying to kill him and that he killed May Zhao in 2007
---Eric Schmidt, ex-CEO of Google, and powers behind Eric Schmidt, had for sake of Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler, systematically gone after each private relation I have in this world, and manipulated them to deceive me, condemn me, be hostile to me; Eric Schmidt/Sebastian Thrun/Ed Feigenbaum/Gabriele Scheler/Angela Merkel's side had almost taken my life; Yes, they had killed May Zhou in 2007, did I make it clear to the public? Why don't you ask them to deny it to the public?
..........................

>>>Peter, I promise you that Eric Schmidt does not even have a German accent.
--- Schmidt is a surname of German origin; Schmidt fought for German scholars Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler, and Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel tried to reinstall Eric Schmidt's power by setting up coups in Stanford and Google;

Q&A about Fascism crimes on land of Palo Alto, CA in which Sebastian Thrun/Gabriele Scheler/Ed Feigenbaum/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel had involved and which were covered up by certain malicious officers with miscarriage of justice
===============
Ducatigirl,
No matter what kind of relation you have with Gabriele Scheler, or even if you are Gabriele Scheler herself, when you got the idea that:
>>>"He has also filed some false police reports, which PAPD has been kind enough not to prosecute him for, as in the case of Gabriele Schiele, a German student"
------ Don't believe in Officer VVV (same as ZZZ/YYY/RRR) who's in charge of Gabriele Scheler's accusations; VVV had already lost his/her credibility after being cowardice for so many years in light of my public challenges; don't believe in this officer, such an officer namely VVV is fooling around with all people involved, including with criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler, with Stanford, with Google, with Sebastian Thrun/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel, and with victim as I am, etc.; VVV had made up the case to curse me and to cover up real crimes, but VVV dare not clarify the case with me with confrontation; Don't believe in anything VVV told you in name of judicial authorities; VVV had no credibility as an officer at all;
--- The crimes are not only coming from those fascists who had committed these crimes, but also from certain malicious officers in the judicial system, especially VVV, who’s miscarriage of justice;
……………………………..
P.S. Gabriele Scheler’s atrocity case on Stanford campus [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler ***t.cn/SXQ6Rj*** attention to the 7 photo evidence to show how cruel these fascists are]

>>>He has also filed some false police reports,
--- Stanford Police wrote the report after serious investigation in 2004; It is Gabriele Scheler who filed false police reports, I did not; and that's why in police report, Gabriele Scheler is clearly defined as a criminal suspect while I am a victim; [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler]
Gabriele Scheler must have recanted her testimony and gone to another place to file further false reports such as 'sseexxual assault', but the officer ZZZ/YYY/VVV who's handling Gabriele Scheler’s accusations had made up the case on Scheler's recanted testimony without even interviewing me once; so in Gabriele Scheler's case, ZZZ/YYY/VVV had collateralled with criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler to file false police reports;
.............................
>>>PAPD has been kind enough not to prosecute him for, as in the case of Gabriele Schiele, a German student.
---Such a shameless claim from you. Though I didn't know the case is handled at PAPD, would you tell me the name of the officer "who's been kind enough not to prosecute" me? What's his/her contact? from which agency?

I always heard there are officers who tried to prosecute me on Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun's accusations, and they had actually molested my life underhandedly, and I had challenged such officers to show me their real identities and bring them on directly to me, and let's clarify the case with confrontation; my contact [caomingpeter AT 163 DOT com] , but they never dare;

I am open and eager to learn real identities of such officers who try to prosecute me; I have a lot to say about Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun/Ed Feigenbaum/Eric Schmidt/Angela Merkel and miscarriage of justice from officers ZZZ/VVV/YYY/RRR, etc.

Do you mean such figures like Gabriele Scheler and Sebastian Thrun would still be allowed to live around Stanford after their misbehaviors had caused so much crimes which had cost life of an innocent Stanford student as May Zhou is and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me? Would Stanford police/PAPD allow them to still be there? Who's going to be responsible for the dire consequences of their fascism crimes?

Do you mean, even though such malicious officers didn't fulfill their responsibility to prosecute criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler for years, now they want to turn back and prosecute victim as I am? I mean, come on, and bring them on directly to me

Sebastian Thrun, a Germany Scholar who had got Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit when she visited Stanford in 2010, had partialy left Stanford Computer Science department because he is in debt to Stanford people with his involvement into Stanford student May Zhou’s death, he is not innocent in an unsuccessful plotted murder on me either and I have been cursed by powers from Sebastian Thrun’s side for many years. Sebastian Thrun dare not deny to the public his involvement into such fascism crimes till today and I am still waiting to see why he dare not

I believe Chancellor Angela Merkel had monitored and invovled into Sebastian Thrun, Gabriele Scheler and Eric Schmidt’s fight against ruling from authorities of Stanford and authorities of U.S. over their unruly criminal behaviors on campus of Stanford, and which ensued a series of crimes, including killing the innocent, conspire life of the victim, terrorize/extort authorities, corruption, miscarriage of justice, discrimination against Asian, all on land of America, etc.

Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Germany, had provided political support for a series of fascism crimes which related to a cold-blooded killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou (a girl of U.S. citizen, Taiwan origin, MIT alumnus and Stanford Ph.D. candidate) as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me, all started from an on campus atrocity case in Stanford University [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler ], in which an extremely irrational Germany lady named Gabriele Scheler had bitterly assaulted me. Chancellor Merkel might as well back up a coup in Stanford after she visited Stanford in 2010, though it was cracked down by California Judicial Authorities in time. It is an interesting question of how much Chancellor Angela Merkel had involved into such series of fascism crimes on land of America. I bet with the intervention of Germany power into these cases, such series of fascism crimes would never be clarified and such fascism crimes on land of America would never be concurred by U.S. Authorities. A very serious offending to the dignity and sovereignty of people of the United States as well as to the whole world of humanity

Also, other than Angela Merkel of Germany Chancellor, it seems there exists a power center of anti-authority in Stanford Computer Science department in this fascism circle to support unruly criminal behaviors of Sebastian Thrun's side

Someone from inside of this department had made Stanford Computer Science department play a big role in such series of fascism crimes ((e.g. Sebastian Thrun's boss in Stanford Computer Science Professor Emeritus Ed Feigenbaum, who had peeked my emails, manipulated my friends and relatives to deceive me/condemn me/be hostile to me, which police told me is crime; and a big donor CCC who manipulated the handling of this case with discriminative favor of Gabriele Scheler/Sebastian Thrun in Stanford, and more, Thrun's student and colleagues had for sake of Thrun (possibly with guidance of someone as Feigenbaum?) falsely accused me at police which I believe is another set of crime ... professor teaches students to commit crime ... professor Ed Feigenbaum of Sebastian Thrun's boss in Stanford Computer Science department is a crime supporter... details later … )) which is highlighted by the killing of an innocent Stanford student May Zhou as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me.

But would anyone from Stanford Computer Science department be willing to live under its shadow of such fascism crimes? or would anyone from this department give moral or spiritual support to such fascists who's misbehavior had caused cold-blooded killing of an innocent student from their own school of Stanford? Can anyone take place of these fascists to clarify their legal responsibilities and face legal consequences of their fascism crimes? Can anyone in this department answer the question: what's the motivation behind May Zhou's death?

For sake of their own fame, Stanford Computer Science department has the responsibility to go after those fascists to make them pay for their crimes

Also, Kaifu Lee, who had abused his relation as a classmate with Obama, and who served as a cat's paw in this fascism circle which involved into killing of the innocent Stanford student May Zhou, as well as an unsuccessful plotted murder on me, had publicly humiliated the Romneys with a racy post on his weibo site right after the election is over; The likely motivation of Kaifu Lee’s such racy action is to bum for supports from Classmate Obama and Bill Clinton to force Google to re-enlist him, though he had betrayed Microsoft to join Google in 2005, and later abandoned Google in 2009, actions from a very despicable soul;

As a reminder, till today, that racy satire post on Kaifu Lee's weibo site displayed on 2012/11/07 http://tiny.cc/4egkow (Chinese version of twitter, Kaifu Lee has over 20 million followers there) to humiliate an innocent woman, Romney’s wife, (which at the same time tarnished the image of Obama), is still alive on Kaifu Lee's weibo site;

But a man with education should never publicly humiliate an innocent woman, even if she is wife of a presidential candidate, and especially after the election is over; Kaifu Lee, as a public figure owe Romney’s wife, as well as owe the general public, a formal apology over such a despicable behavior from him;

The problem with Gabriele Scheler’s campus atrocity case [Stanford Police Case Number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler ---t.cn/SXQ6Rj--- attention to the 7 photo evidence] is that Gabriele Scheler’s side had recanted their testimony after Stanford police investigation in 2004; there are certain malicious officers (e.g. ZZZ mentioned above) who chose to stand on this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler’s side and collateralled with Scheler to conspire victims(e.g. Stanford, May Zhou, me, and later on Google as well) in order to cover up their crimes while applying retaliation on victims, but Scheler’s side dare never show me any of their evidence nor testimony (mine were post on the web) which they used to molest victims for years, and most of all, such malicious officers do not want to see this case from being clarified
But without clarification of this case, more and more retaliatory crimes were committed from Eric Schmidt, Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side, which is highlighted by the killing of this innocent Stanford student May Zhou and an unsuccessful plotted murder on me, and I bet more would come if this case remain unclarified as it is now
So the point at this time is, who is this officer, namely VVV, in charge of Gabriele Scheler’s accusation of seeexxual assault? (Is VVV from FBI?) and who had underhandedly made up numerous accustaions against me at authorities trying to intimidate me from clarifying such fascism criminal cases, and to terrorize others from ruling against those fascism criminals; VVV is miscarriage of justice and I hereby publicly challenge VVV to bring on details of Gabriele Scheler’s accusations direct to me and clarify the case with confrontation at authorities.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
