Comment Re:Competition (Score 1) 280

But if you have the only supply (Like you invented it and you keep how you make it secret) then there is naturally no competition as long as the situation remains the same.

And, precisely because there is no competition and it is difficult to impossible for new players to enter the market, you no longer have much incentive to innovate or keep your prices low. Consumers suffer accordingly.

It should be obvious to anyone with a brain that Google is going to become the next Microsoft once it succeeds in destroying the current one. And at least the current one doesn't have satellites watching us.
