Welcome Skynet + NWO. Think I'm goofy huh? All the apathetic will just wait, see, and be oh so astonished: "how did this happen to us".

Who gives a care about 'royals'. What's the fascination? Are they all descendants of Mary Magdalene?

Real Computing

Tablets, slates, whatever you wish to call them, they're all for the fanbois, not for real computing.

One Size ...

Apple and Microsoft building one-size-fits-all AND you will abide? I suppose it's the new philosophy. W7 isn't so bad, but ML is in the cloud. There are plenty of Linux distros to chose from, for personal use. For work, I'll play on an etch a sketch if they want to pay me.

Google may face grilling by MPs over 'immoral' tax avoidance

He Said, She Said

"The firm said in an emailed statement that it makes a "substantial contribution to the UK economy through local, payroll and corporate taxes".

"We also employ over a thousand people, help hundreds of thousands of businesses to grow online and invest millions supporting new tech businesses in East London...."

Emailed? Don't they use letter-head any longer? Substantial contribution to the economy at 1.5%?

And with the mention of employment, the extortion threat. They are indeed immoral. No social responsibility. Just modern day robber barons.

"There certainly are good, thoughtful contributors at Wikipedia, yet huge swathes of material – encompassing biographies of living people – are governed by anonymous fanatics with an axe to grind."

I believe the readers can arrive at their own conclusions without the UK nanny state intervening.

Due Diligence

I'm sympathetic to Mr. Honan's loss. I've been burned myself and in retrospect I could have avoided it by more carefully considering what exactly it was I should be doing.

The Apple iCloud and the like have been rammed down the publics' neck in a marketing blitzkrieg to gain and further control of users data, apps, hardware, communications, location, and travel, spending and social behaviors. What gives?

It's ok to 'just say no'.

Re: Helping people find jobs

With $32+Trillion hoarded in off-shore the vaults, where is the consumer 'demand' to create jobs that manufacture products or provide services, in a deficit driven economy? Someone please make a rational economic evidenced-based argument to the contrary. Thank you Christoph for the reality check.
