Schmidt Goobris: "we should have 100% share"

Google's CEO Eric Schmidt told Forbes: "Our model is just better." "Based on that, we should have 100% share" -- per Forbes cover story: "When Google runs your life."

This is a remarkably ill-advised admission when Google is:

  • Seeking FTC antitrust approval to buy the leading mobile advertising marketplace and direct Google competitor Admob;
  • Seeking DOJ and court approval of the Google Book Settlement;
  • Seeking to avoid FTC privacy regulation and congressional privacy legislation;
  • Seeking to gain special treatment and an exemption from the FCC from pending net neutrality regulations supposedly designed to address anti-competitive behavior.
