"Following Nancy Pelosi’s “poor Tim” comment earlier this week, Apple today is again the target of yet another politician. This time, Massachusetts senator and potential Hillary Clinton running mate Elizabeth Warren has slammed Apple, Google, and Amazon for using their size to “snuff out competition.”
Warren’s comments came during a speech in Washington at event called “America’s Monopoly Problem.” Warren gave different reasons for calling out each of the three tech companies, but the general trend was that each company uses their size and power to “lock out smaller guys and newer guys.”
Specifically referring to Apple, Warren accused the company of placing conditions on competitors that make it harder for them to offer their own services, specifically referring to Apple Music. Apple “has placed conditions on its rivals that make it difficult for them to offer competitive streaming services,” Warren said."
