Alan Denman

The thing about paying no tax..

Is that by paying employees as little as possible net profit rockets even more.

Corporation tax actually encourages them to pay proper wages !

re - Consumers in China should use strong security – such as 2-factor authentication

Apple, GT in SECRET SAPPHIRE peaceable parting PACT

Alan Denman

Sucker got unsuckered ?

re "it would be allowed sell off the Mesa facility and return the money to Cupertino, without disclosing any further information about the companies' relationship."

So it goes like this? :-

GT did the donkey work but Apple had a better deal planned with a more skilled tenant once GT sapphire kit was in. And GT extracted something for themselves via semi-blackmail.

Apple still suckered them good and proper.

FYI: OS X Yosemite's Spotlight tells Apple EVERYTHING you're looking for

Alan Denman

They are competing with Google via..

..the combined search thing.

It is not that we users want combined search, it is that Apple and Microsoft want your search business so getting us used to combined search is there way to kill Google.

Apple bluetooth is another data grabbing weapon, location again.

Apple SILENCES Bose, YANKS headphones from stores

Alan Denman

re - 'They've toned down the bass'

So that they are now only a bit less crap than true sounding cheap decent headphones.

They suit a few more music categories but you are far better off with music sounding as the artist intended.

Is it the screen ?

Seems to have a cheap TN panel.

That and the 22 nanometer low-power process would account for the battery.

ARM at 20nm would beat it and keep that taxing Intel wolf from the door

Chipzilla of the mobile world Qualcomm wants to slurp Brit vendor CSR... for £1.6bn

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

re "subject to regulatory and shareholder approval "

Regulators really need to look very carefully here.

Qualcomm patents has meant that those with superior big.little chipset have not been able to compete on price, those giving us lower tech on the CPU front.

This might cement the monopoly and thus be further bad news for competitors and even ARM

Stop being idiots, just tax them

Complete fools have the wrong end of the stick.

It is US corporate tx avoidance that is the main threat to the EU.

Apple pitches record labels on cheaper music service

Alan Denman
Bronze badge

Music cartels are go

It is in the interest of music companies to have a fewer streaming sites.

So pushing Apple into success might shrink the playing field thus allowing higher prices in the long run.

We seldom seem to hear about Spotify, so they might have a massive publicity problem in not being US based.

New story for old shite

The media missed out several generations of Bendgates, but the 'biggy' phone gave the cowards a get out clause to report it without repercussions.

One wonders if they have to act en-mass so as not to suffer the wrath of Apple withdrawing advertising.

No.

they are being asked to promote low ranking crap from many of their complainants.

The idea being to make Google crap like the rest to ensure 'fair competition'.

Oh, and DuckDuckGo is just a Bing powered 'shoot the Google duck' engine.

But he dismissed such dissenting voices today.

""..there are more problems with Google than there were with Microsoft," Almunia was quoted as saying."

Read IBM's note to staff announcing mandatory training and 10% pay cut

Alan Denman

Learn their jobs !

It does sound more like a clever redundancy program.

Get someone to learn you job by pretending you are on training.

Long term it is obvious that so called in-house training hints of the old factory systems where they found ways to charge staff.

Maybe IBM could charge a mandatory seat fee for non home workers?

iOS 8 release: WebGL now runs everywhere. Hurrah for 3D graphics!

Alan Denman

A sabotaged WebGL !

Whilst the Rip Van Winkle OS has finally made WebGL work, it is artificially limited to be near useless for many.

Maybe it is that old chestnut, IOS memory problems that limit any sensible multi tasking. They also parameter constrain WebGL like it is a iPod touch 5th gen.
