That rivals and how much water is going to be. To a -- on the porch with all these major and -- competition in of antitrust probes. We will find out the big companies especially in the tech industry always end up with a certain race and that's what happens with Google's lead get away without. Conceding anything of the core business which is the search engine. Parents it appears that yes rivals competition from all -- -- usually much more efficient. To protect the consumer which is usually. The main. Driver behind as it probes in the case of -- grew we see that. You know this mean the competition from from that with the likes of you who selects from the people and consumers can always change into different -- attention. And -- different and and I dressing in in the box and I knew you could carry two. Google rivals -- have. Well I think it's -- yeah I I know Roberts.

Microsoft unable to make much of a mock concern of Smartphones and tablets and then this line eventually Google is destined to be destined to have the same fate. And that's quite a bold thing to say well you're you're you're you're. Releasing that group has been forced to buys smaller rival -- Netflix. Yeah that you -- and others. Because of them start ups or food companies product companies were investing in an area as we didn't have any idea. Consumes. Would go until less this what will happen as well.

Stuck up on the government debt deemed very liquid. That banks up to Vista had a lot of liquid assets under the U. To affirmative. Guard against possibly see that there would be equipped to run on the bank consumed regularly to have been very careful about that. And the banks are asked to look at stock up on government debt because it is very liquid on the other hand on the capital -- Government debt is risky so the Maurice tuchman covenant that an employee had -- As of something had had to give regulators this is a big renters -- that we were commenting on. Regulations are about to give him more time three more years to comply. With the integration. Within. Within that time that might revise the ratio as well let's suppose that says the regular regular tracking down a little. Oh of course they RB -- -- circumstances and facing Susie question is the president is what these illiquid -- and it. Foreign bank and that's and that's something that helped so.
