Is Putin strong? I think he overplayed his hand, it's made him look weaker than before.

Well that's in your opinion, personally I'll be replacing the phone either way long before the battery needs replacing, so I'd prefer it be as thin and small as possible with the largest capacity battery possible without any compromise to make it reoveable. So I'm totally against this mandate from the EU altogether.
Whenever I hear a company talking about "culture", all I hear is brainwashing. Nobody truly believes in a companies culture, they just keep their mouths shut and nod their heads in agreement while thinking, yea sure. If companies really believe their employees embrace their designated company culture they are just fooling themselves.
Also, how do they actually know its easier to get people to believe in a company culture from the office? How have they found out less people follow their culture while at home? How have they even measured how many believed in the culture while in the office?
Given the employees, collectively, have the power, they really should just not go back in.
You do, but it's a relatively rubber stamped process. Even individuals have easily managed to get high court seizure orders on large companies. The high court enforcement officers just turn up at the head office and they either pay or they take things out of the office worth enough at likely auction sale value.
If you have a Samsung phone, just install the apps into the secure folder instead of the main phone. It will only have access to what else is in your secure folder. Just make sure when anyone us going to check, you already have the app open and don't go searching into the secure folder in front of them.
OK, so given this has been brought in to stop waste. If what you are saying happens, which obviously it will have to eventually. All new devices will have to follow the new standard and everyone that buys any new device will throw their cable away. How on earth does it stop waste?
You say that people will only throw it away when their device is no longer required, that's exactly what happens now. I've never needed to buy a different cable spec for the same device in its lifetime. Once two, maybe 3 standards are in force, you'll have devices of different ages snd again, different cables for all of them, that you throw away when you buy the new standard device.
It will either block innovation or it won't work at all. If they agree new standards due to improvements, once all the manufacturers switch over (imagine how long that will take to get through EU legislation) then everyone will throw their charging cables away again to adopt the new enforced standard. Either the tech never improves, or the waste continues. Just, at the behest of the EU instead.
The problem is, people just will never implement exactly to spec, which is difficult anyway with a continually evolving spec. They will introduce bugs by mistake, not have time to fully implement a feature to all of the specs detail. As a dev I'd rather one underlying browser engine to target, at least I know that if I write code that works, it will work in all browsers using that engine. Rather than having to find the common base of what works between 4 different implementations of the same language.
I in some respects agree. But a company doesn't exist in isolation. If they have been caught napping and have to get a competitive product out, that's time critical. It doesn't really matter if you have to replace a few employees who couldn't or didn't want to do it. The company might not exist at all unless the product gets out sooner rather than later.
The biggest problem from a devs point of view is that until the very last versions, the debugger was awful! How did they not realise that if you want things to look and work well in your browser, making it easy for devs to do so is the number 1 goal. It took them too many years to realise that. I have no idea why! They must have continously got feedback from devs who make websites within Microsoft!
They could be paying Google for that service, oh clever one. Do they get your sympathy then? Paid for or not, if a a company goes brankrupt, good luck getting your data out of them. I presume you are paying for two services? When for redundancy reasons only, two free ones would be just as good.
