How (and why) would the US DOJ actually split up Google, and what would that look like? What similarities are there to the infamous DOJ/Microsoft case of the late 1990s and early 2000s? Will this last beyond the US election cycle, and what (if any) effect might it have on the ACCC’s own probes into Google’s business conduct?

Meanwhile, Google and Amazon are going head to head with cheap HDMI streaming dongles. Google’s got its $99 Google Chromecast with Google TV, while Amazon’s offering up the Fire TV Stick Lite for $59 — but are either of them actually worth buying?
