Orange denies exec's Apple tablet 'confirmation'

Alan Cowderoy

He's just going along with the interviewer

I've listened to this a couple of times and the interviewer clearly asks Richard about *speculation* appearing in "Le Point" that Apple will bring out a tablet. The rather pithy reply could *very easily* be just confirmation that he is aware of the speculation and on balance that's how I hear it.

None of the rather wooly chit chat about videophoning with webcams that follows much changes things.

But perhaps he's just being cagey. In any case reading this as definite confirmation is over the top.

Surcouf is adding a €0.33 donation to eco-oriented causes

No they aren't. They are passing on a tax which they are obliged to levy that finances the recyling of consumer hardware. It's a transposition of an EU directive but perhaps not reached the UK yet? Article here http://www.presence-pc.com/actualite/deee-ecotaxe-20293/
