One still unanswered question:
How is it EU can tell Google and Double Click they cannot do this merger when both are US companies? Sure, they can deny the merger in EU, but it would still go through in the US, and Double Click would still be owned by Google, so they can't stop it due to lack of authority.

How To Google "Ariane" and "Google"!
Purchase a few DreamLiners and hire programmers to live and work aboard. They never have to leave the planes. The exceptional programmers (workers) get to work, eat and live aboard AIRBUSES and CONCORDES - all for FREE!

Develop a superior Space Port to that of Ariane and deliver superior launch and communications services. ;-) !
