Lucky me, I made it to the NYT again, on the Google investigation. See here.

To be honest, my quote is very lame.

I had a better one though. But it did not make it through.

James Kanter reveals it on twitter: ‘Enforcers risk becoming Don Quixote figures, tilting at windmills.

The point is: 4 years to solve a high-tech case under a settlement, come on…

4 years ago, Nokia was the worlwide leader in handsets. And Blackberry was the dominant smartphone player.

In those sectors, 4 years is an eternity…

And antitrust enforcers may not be far from Quixote, who fell into the illusion that he was fighting a cause that matters, i.e. fighting giants which in reality were innocuous windmills.
