Alphabet’s Google along with technology trade groups have griped to the Federal Trade Commission about allegedly unfair business practices in the cloud, including by the industry’s number two by market share Microsoft, according to a report published by Reuters. Seems like Google is following Apple’s footsteps as the subsidiary of tech behemoth Alphabet Inc., is looking to establish partnerships with Indian suppliers for the local manufacturing of its Pixel smartphones.
