I wonder if the new keyboard is authentic in missing the debounce that occasionally use to lead to ddoouubblle characters when typing.

Re: Not Okay Google
You are right.
It is a minefield, although the tech is amazing.
For a while I strongly suspected that the mics were pumping my in home data away to a dark place without the use of a key word.
Without the use of the OK/Hey google trigger word, I have not given permission/consent for my data to go anywhere!
Thus GDPR is clearly breached. This is a crime and for this there is a cost.
Google broke the law.
Pucker up Alphabet - think of it in lieu for the taxes you avoided.
Not a government problem
If industry is running out of trained staff, why didn't it train more people. I'm not talking about now, but 15 years ago when the problem started to emerge. Business has relied heavily on 'the market' providing staff trained in the skills it requires. The pool of people dried up and instead of pushing full steam with training, it became a long running issue for immigration and the government to sort. The issue belongs to industry and it's time that it took ownership of the problem rather than lobbying to scoop more from overseas.
Aha! Reading the title, I was slightly hoping that this would be full video conferencing Skype, in other words something new. I guess the news-worthiness of this is spectacular level of "late" and "nothing new" from a company who had once operated in leap and bounds. Skype must be under huge pressure to up revenue, if the stories of ebay wanted to cut their losses are true. Folks savvy enough to install skype on their mobile will be also quick to find a more versatile product.
With my three 3.5G phone there's about 1.2 MB down and 80k up, so enough for thumbnail video&speech. Maybe FRING will be the first to find a way to access the front facing camera in symbian phones and bring the IM experience to the handset.
