This naughty behavior has landed Google in deep trouble with nearly 40 out of America’s 50 states, and the company will have to pay a fine to the tune of $17 million. That’s honestly a drop in the bucket and will likely not stop Google from pulling this sort of stunt again. Let me remind you that there are plenty of other countries where iOS devices are sold, so what’s to stop Google from doing this in Italy or France or the UK?
Anyway, what does Google have to say about all this?
