FTC Ramping Up Pressure in Google Probe

It is never a good thing to feel pressure while you are being probed. I mean....that's what I heard anyway. eek!

Antitrust regulators are examining key areas of Google's business in its ongoing investigation of the company, suggesting potential threats to its plans to expand its business beyond its search engine business. Federal Trade Commission lawyers have been inquiring into whether or not the Mountain View, Calif.-based company prevents smartphone makers that use its Android OS from using competitors' services.
