Re: Have the Big Tech Giants got too much power ?

Of even more concern than the actions of individual Big Tech organisations is their concerted action. This could happen even if they are broken up. Of course, you expect them to work together for the purposes of lobbying their home governments (say to ban foreign competition, attack foreign tax regimes etc.). However, as illustrated in the case of "Parler", Amazon, Google and Apple worked together to eliminate this source of competition. Considering that Apple and Google (Android) between control a significant majority of the smart phone market, any demonstration that they act together to further their common interests is especially worrying.
