Springtime for Google

You were probably expecting like bobbleheads of the Runaways?...Nyet.

Consumer Watchdog, the Santa Monica group that's proving a perpetual thorn in the side of Google Inc., plans to call on the Justice Department to launch an antitrust action against the search giant and seek remedies including a possible break up.

The consumer organization, which won grants from the Rose Foundation of Oakland specifically to investigate Google's privacy practices, plans to make the announcement at a news conference titled "The Antitrust Case Against Google" in Washington today.

"We, as an organization, have concluded that there's enough evidence on the table to warrant this, to go beyond the reactive steps that the regulatory agencies have followed up until now," said John Simpson of Consumer Watchdog.

It remains to be seen whether the Consumer Watchdog's bite equals its...... bark.
