Re: As a non citizen

I love reading english. English. Especially when it is written in a British non-murrican way. Even more if it is on purpose. Top it off with British Humour and me is bliss.

Take that, America! Huawei flips Trump & Co the bird after reporting double-digit % rise in sales and profit

Louis Schreurs BEng Bronze badge

I am sad that I bought into the Apple eco-sphere just recently.

Only because it is American. My disdain for the American atitude has never been bigger.

Budget considerations prevent me from moving right now to another provider of smart-hardware.

Never gonna fly Boeing again also.

I hate Trump for destroying my dream of a Christmass on Chateau Belvédère in Central Park, New York.

It's over 9,000! Boffin-baffling microquasar has power that makes the LHC look like a kid's toy

Louis Schreurs BEng Bronze badge

clickbait

I can be wrong, it's a morning after an evening of satisfying potsmoking, but the thing has roughly 2 times the power of the LHC. At first I thought it was an American reporter bashing on a contraception located in Europe. But no.

A kid's toy has the power of a grown-up's toy orders of magnitude smaller. Not half the power.

What a kid's idea of a title for this in essence rather interesting article. Also the usual sarcastic title-appropriation on The Reg isn't applicable to me. What a bummer.

Trump shouldn't criticise the news media, says Amazon's Jeff Bezos

Louis Schreurs BEng Bronze badge

Re: Media? Does he mean news reporting, cause it's not the same.

- Reagan introduced legislation that allowed for biased news reporting, before that it was legally required to report both sides to a story

- Assessed from a distance, your USA politics 'left' is just right in the middle, USA's citizens are so self-obsessed and self-absorbed that they can't see beyond their closely guarded (national-, moral-) borders. You don't have a 'left'wing party, only a centrist political party and a right wing political party.

So Dutch here, hence not familiar with US situation, and perhaps missing the point of this article completely, I admit in advance, but here where I live, if I don't have a connection to a Cell transceiver, visible on my mobile (Cell) phone: no antenna, then I am not connected to the network and will not be able to make a phone call?????????????????????
