Microsoft and Google: We are After the Same Thing Aren't We ?

"...Microsoft and  Google have agreed to abandon all regulatory complaints against each other."


After Billions safely tucked away in bank vaults, these two have come to an agreement to stop wasting it on lawyers ?   


How magnanimous of them.

The regulatory environment demands cooperation.
This really goes to show, I think, how ridiculously burdensome and meddlesome the regulatory environment has become.  European and other countries want to prevent information sharing almost entirely while the US and the other Five Eyes countries, as well as some Middle Eastern and APAC countries, want to make it easier to get at citizens' information.  Add to that all the hackers working steadily away at compromising systems, and it's become a near-can't-win environment unless these mega-corporations team up together.
