Iowa’s Attorney General Tom Miller hails the judgement finding Microsoft guilty of using predatory practices to bury competitors. A federal judge has ruled the computer company used high-tech shakles to monopolize the web browser market. Iowa was one of 19 states involved in the case.Miller says consumers are better off when there’s competition. He says the decision is broad, conclusive and compelling.If the judge’s ruling stands, Microsoft could be broken up like A-T-and-T was when the telephone company was ruled a monopoly. Microsoft executives say their “passion for being the best” was misinterpreted, and they vow to appeal the case. Yesterday’s announcement was expected by Wall Street investors. The “tech heavy” NASDAQ lost a record three-hundred-49 points.
