The View From Here

So the U.S. OKs DoubleClick. Sounds good, but don't forget Europe is still pondering the matter, and they like to be tougher than the FTC.

Yeah, but Europe is tough like the guy who throws a few extra rabbit punches in, after you're on the floor. If the U.S. had found problems, Europe would have found a few more. But, with the FTC extending the glad hand, Europe will likely do no more than grump and snort.

So, it comes down to execution. But don't worry - Larry and Sergey are in the sweet spot. They have been anointed. They can't miss.
