RE: Google's conflict with Acer and Alibaba
Okay, so I am late on this story. Google's strategy is nothing short of a conglomerate seeking widespread power. Yes, it was unfair mostly to Alibaba because think about ... Alibaba was and still is a significant threat. Look, I first came across Alibaba in 2006. It wasn't this huge online retail presence that it is now. Anyway, this article is from 2012 and I read 2 weeks ago that Alibaba has already set offices up in New York, though it may have trouble in the revenue department as they are equally leveraging marketing dollars to gain a increase in sales. Sometimes, this ruse can go wrong because you end up breaking even or losing money. There's more to this story but I don't want to make my response too long.
