Microsoft’s CEO, Satya Nadella, testified in the Google antitrust trial, claiming that the big tech company’s unfair tactics helped it become the dominant search engine, subsequently hindering the success of his company’s rival, Bing. Following the hearing, Steve DelBianco, president & CEO of NetChoice, took to Twitter to express his thoughts about the testimony.
“Spent the morning in courtroom where our government wants to force Apple to make Bing the default search engine on iPhones. Microsoft CEO testimony established 2 things: 1. Microsoft invested in mobile search early on, but failed to keep up with Google search quality. And 2. Users change defaults easily when they want to use another browser or search engine. This case is not about consumers, but is all about our government intervening in a market that works very well for consumers today,” DelBianco tweeted.
