    Google has been long overdue for a breakup, in my opinion. How they get away with multiple monopolies (especially when other companies get broken up or penalized for looser ones) for so long eludes me.

    Also, I'm in the camp of "They wouldn't because it's going to get rejected anyway."

    They have reasons, but as they're now an OEM (via Microsoft Mobile, formerly Nokia D&S), they can't get away with a vertical monopoly. (Not until Google stops lobbying lawmakers.)

    I don't know why Microsoft would buy a company that is losing money anyway in an area they're not going for.

    They already bought one company that was losing money, but only because they wanted to keep making Windows Phones.

    The answer to that would be no. Just like Boeing cannot have its own airline per the Air Mail Act of 1933 or 34, similar legislation has been passed forbidding these types of corporate umbrellas. Remember Ma Bell in '84?

    Yes; it was not nearly as bad as Pa Bell in 2014.

    "Can Microsoft get the FCC to...."

    No matter how you end that, the answer will most likely be no.

    Google is not an ISP.

    I doubt that the German government would allow Microsoft to take over Deutsche Telekom.
