Looks like Google might be in some hot water again on the international stage, this time in India. Reuters reported that four sources claimed that the Competition Commission of India (CCI), the country's antitrust watchdog, is investigating accusations against the tech giant that allege that it is abusing Android's dominance in that market to crush other competition.

IRS agents won't ask you to pay back taxes with iTunes gift cards, and unverified images on a Google Maps listing don't necessarily represent the business owner — what seems like common sense to you and I can end up causing a lot of pain and anguish to less discerning individuals. Twitter user @DrunkenPandaman stumbled upon one such instance today, where the Google Maps listings of liquor stores across India are being flooded with thousands of images having phone numbers on them, seemingly promising home delivery for an advance payment — an obvious scam, that seems to be working.
