Fork it! Google fined €4.34bn over Android, has 90 days to behave


Re: what about Apple?

You can use whatever you damn well please on Google products. Most people don't want to though because when products seamlessly integrate, love is easier


Re: The big big question

Windows 10 has been known to automatically change your default programs to Microsoft defaults, and makes it hard for regular users to change default programs. This I see as more of a concern than whatever this Google thing is all about. Still not fine worthy. The EU is increasingly power hungry


Re: Yee Haw!, Eeh Haw!

There seems to be a lot of pro-EU comments like your own. Are your parents part of the EU and give you some of the fine money as a treat for dropping anti US-UK propaganda?


Re: I'll still want a phone with Google's Android implementation.

Yeah, there's a reason for brexit


This is ridiculous. Google dominates because it does things good. You buy an Android or Chromebook and you have instant free access to gone drive, docs, calendar, etc. On top of that, you can easily install third party apps, which can integrate directly with other Google services

BT broadband is down: Former state monopoly goes TITSUP UK-wide


Just noticed we are getting major packet drops to one of Google's closest servers but to a small French server I own, we have next to no drops

I guess London is broked



I work in tech support for an EPOS company and we were getting so many calls about "we can't take card payments and access the internet" blah blah blah (because they seem to think we are responsible for more than just the tills). This has been going on since about 2pm, mostly London, although did also get a call from Worthing, near Brighton

I've spent most of the past hour waiting for a fun news story to read. I wonder if BT will drop us a statement as to why they done TITSUP
