Tomorrow’s cover today: concern about the clout of the internet giants is growing. But antitrust watchdogs should tread carefully.

Update: As a few folks have noted, perhaps the most interesting thing about the graphic is the company not included: Microsoft. Ouch.

Sure they’re included — they’re in the capsule. Safe, but not necessarily going anywhere for a bit. 
But to drag the analogy out far too much, it can also be noted that sometimes the best way to win is not to play the game. If Microsoft can stay just far away enough from that cannibalistic fracas, it may emerge king with its solid (and increasingly better-designed) lineup of products & services.
