Financial Times, April 15, 2015

The Financial Times had details of the expected action in its Wednesday edition, noting the EU’s move could eventually force the search giant “to change its business model fundamentally and pay hefty fines.” Brussels will also investigate whether Google’s smartphone software Android forces phone companies to favor the U.S. company’s own applications and products.
