A recent study shows that most Americans would consider purchasing a non-petrol vehicle. But, the cost of electric and natural gas cars are keeping them from making the switch. Consumers are willing to change their behavior, but won’t pay a premium to do so. In other news, Microsoft filed another antitrust complaint against Google with the European Commission. Google has nearly 95% of the European search market and is being chastised for serving its own products, like YouTube, as favored search results. Microsoft even claims that Google is blocking access to other information to further rig the results. And finally, a recent report shows that 95% of workers have purchased at least one device that they use for work.
