FairSearch a Microsoft Front Group, Designed to Incite Politicians Against Google

Summary: More Microsoft-funded lie tellers, whose purpose is to unleash antitrust action against Google, get unmasked

TECHRIGHTS has spent a considerable amount of time exposing anti-Google groups which are funded by Microsoft. Sometimes these are one-man (or woman) entities, e.g. Ben Edelman.

Microsoft often uses “consultant” trick for passing a bribe and FairSearch seems to be one such example. To quote:

But Athey isn’t just a professor. She’s also a consultant to Microsoft and has the role of Microsoft’s chief economist. The Microsoft connections weren’t listed next to her name on the agenda, but at least they were made clear in her introduction to those at the event.

Microsoft is using lies again. As the author notes: “That’s not true. Not only is it not true, it’s impossible. It’s impossible because Android code is released to anyone to do anything that they want with. But if just being impossible isn’t enough proof, how about proof of Android devices that have dropped Google as the default search engine?”

Amazon put Bong inside Android. Others too put other search engines in Android, so clearly it is not verboten, it is just disgusting when Microsoft spying is put in place in exchange for kickbacks.

    Roy, I have a minor editorial question, and I’m not trying to be difficult… this is an honest question. In the summary, does ‘lie tellers’ have a better fit than the more concise ‘liars?’ I’m not being critical, but curious.

    Regards.

    Like all articles, I wrote this between sets at the gym and at the time, if I recall correctly, I wanted to write “mouthpieces” but thought it would sound more juvenile.

    The man behind Curl, Daniel Stenberg, criticises Gemini; but it's not clear if he even bothered trying it (except very briefly) or just read some inaccurate, one-sided blurbs about it

    With the Tux Machines anniversary (19 years) just days away we seriously consider abandoning all social control media accounts of that site, including Mastodon and Diaspora; social control networks do far more harm than good and they’ve gotten a lot worse over time



  12. Anonymously Travelling: Still Feasible?

    The short story is that in the UK it's still possible to travel anonymously by bus, tram, and train (even with shades, hat and mask/s on), but how long for? Or how much longer have we got before this too gets banned under the false guise of "protecting us" (or "smart"/"modern")?



  13. With EUIPO in Focus, and Even an EU Kangaroo Tribunal, EPO Corruption (and Cross-Pollination With This EU Agency) Becomes a Major Liability/Risk to the EU

    With the UPC days away (an illegal and unconstitutional kangaroo court system, tied to the European Union in spite of critical deficiencies) it’s curious to see EPO scandals of corruption spilling over to the European Union already

    This third translation in the batch is an article similar to the prior one, but the text is a bit different (“Patente ohne Wert”)

    SUEPO has just released 3 translations of new articles in German (here is the first of the batch); the following is the second of the three (“Kritik am Europäischen Patentamt – Patente ohne Wert?”)

  19. HMRC: You Can Click and Type to Report Crime, But No Feedback or Reference Number Given

    The crimes of Sirius ‘Open Source’ were reported 7 days ago to HMRC (equivalent to the IRS in the US, more or less); but there has been no visible progress and no tracking reference is given to identify the report

    One week ago we reported tax abuses of Sirius ‘Open Source’ to HMRC; we still wait for any actual signs that HMRC is doing anything at all about the matter (Sirius has British government clients, so maybe they’d rather not look into that, in which case HMRC might be reported to the Ombudsman for malpractice)
