So Amazon makes Billions, that's business.
So Amazon pays little tax, there is nothing illegal here.
So the Government tries to claim it is unethical to do this, yet MP's have had their fingers in the till for years but claim 'we Woz just following the rules'.
MP's pretend to sort out expenses but then buy houses and then rent them out to each other so that they can claim housing expenses. Effectively one MP pays another MP rent using tax payers money.
Joe Public is in the middle of a recession and looks for bargains because he can't fund his expenses from the tax payer. If Joe Public find a cheap bargain because of Amazon so what.
MP's and Government need to look in the mirror.
Confusius he say
You're lucky, here in the UK I don't exist, the nearest town is now called the name of a town 40 miles away and parts of Wales are now in England. If I try to navigate to my address it sends me to a pond 11 miles away in a village whose name does not match the village it sends me to.
Confused? You will be after next weeks episode of........

Re: Was there a survey?
85% of ? 10? 20? 100? 1000? 10,000? 100,000?
If there are any win 8 users out there, did a little box come up on the screen asking for you to agree to Microsoft harvesting your details or if not is it a program that phones home without interaction.
Re: You have the right to remain guilty...
But of course, IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE.............
Isn't that what the self righteous always spout at a time like this?
It doesn't mean that they won't bring out something 'new' that won't be transferable to older devices.
It just means there will be support, just like XP so this is just sound bite advertising.
The European courts will probably stop it claiming privacy concerns. Still, I'd like to swear at it and see what response I get!
Re: More fake statistics paid by Microsoft
It's all down to sustainability and now win 8 has been found with more holes than a Swiss cheese........
To be arrested for hurting someone's feelings or disagreeing with someone's point of view?
That is the question.
Shit, there's no hope for anyone is there!
Nero fiddled while Rome Burned.
HTC just fiddled.
But should we be surprised that this software, after years of development, months of testing, billions spent and finally released has more holes in it than Gorgonzola cheese?
So he stole a few items and left did he?
Who are they kidding. They will probably find him face down in a river somewhere or else never find the body and then close the case.
Hope this will be one in the eye to the 'authorities'.

Re: Why are they wasting all this money??
Would you put yourself up for the PCC election for the salary of £85,000 a year?
Because that's what it will cost.
Re: Biggest waste of money.
Expect a voter turnout of less than 3% and that is optimistic.
Re: i wonder...
Yes it looks like the Tories are masters of deviant behaviours, stemming from their Public Schools no doubt.
However Labour are catching up not so much with deviant behaviours but fraudulent, stemming from the 'loophole' of being able to buy a house on expenses and then renting it out to a fellow MP who them claims housing expenses for renting, while at the same time renting his house out to the first MP for the same purpose.
If they had used their brains like this while in power the UK would be the richest country in the world.
So at the next election we have a choice between deviants and the devious.
"Meanwhile, the poor Babel fish, by effectively removing all barriers to communication between different races and cultures, has caused more and bloodier wars than anything else in the history of creation."
There have been a number of complaints recently where a school introduced fingerprint readers for the diner queue. Rather than using money or a card to pay for you meal, you use a fingerprint.
Of course the machine 'does not' record finger prints, though it must contain a database of them many parents are concerned about data protection issues. The system was introduced without a consultation. It would be quite easy for the police or local authority to get access to it simply by requesting it through a court order.
The danger is that like the DNA data base many innocent young people can find themselves on the system simply because the police have been having a trawl.
But hey if you have nothing to hide? As they say.
They are talking about the mini 'mini' ipad, screen size 5.67893 display with a pixel count of 1,000,000?

If it was on colour, I'd buy the purple one. It isn't so I won't.
Still sell more than the surface......
Re: Savagery no it's open source...
No, this is the first true open source network and we should all applaud!
Has just been axed from Apple and is probably looking for a job.
He turned Dixons/Currys round so why not give him a punt?
Produce a telly that is better than the rest.
Of course they will pay it!
This is telling is it not?
Re: Sympathy vacuum.
There are a disproportionate number of Facebook users born on the first of April. Does our Mark really think Facebook advertising works?
That advertising comes out of the woodwork at you on a PC, but this is the last straw.
Hands up who wants advertising on a mobile phone?
You would think that in a recession the EU would demand that all countries lower the rate to the lowest country rate rather than the highest.
Oh I forgot how easy the EU find it to spend other people's money and then demand more and more.
Re: I'm curious
It is neither a pure tablet or a pure laptop, the surface is confused about its identity. There will be some sales, I'd like to try one but I think it will have limited appeal.
Pick up a well designed tablets for the first time and use it, it will make you smile. Pick up a quality laptop and use it for the first time, it will make you smile.
Pick up a Surface for the first time and you will wonder whether to use it as a tablet or use it with the key board, you will wonder if you need to take the keyboard out to the coffee shop with you, when you go on holiday, will you need the keyboard........
SO, HOW MUCH TAX DO THESE
Major players the BPI represents pay in tax?
What you mean they live aboard, Cayman Islands you say?
Money off shored you say?
Only spend 29 days a year I the UK you say?
They are as bent as the MP's that run this country.

Oh the privilege he has, HIS LTE is so good that he doesn't bother with wireless.
He fails to see one thing, not all of us have decent Internet coverage, not all of us have LTE and not all of us live somewhere with good mobile coverage, let alone wireless coverage that can be readily accessed.
Maybe he is not as clever as he thinks he is.
More than decimation.....
READ THE SMALL PRINT
'We reserve the right to change what we want to, when we want to, how we want to at any time during your contract period. We do not have to consult you, ask your permission or anything because we are in charge and have written the contract terms.
We also reserve the right to stick two fingers up at your consumer rights because we are bigger that you and you'd never have enough in you bak account to take us to court.
We also reserve to right to ignore you if we so choose and if the service is not up to scratch then so what. Go somewhere else if you don't like it'. Symbol of the finger.
Of course, you do have a choice to move you contract, to somewhere less favourable and with the same contract terms.
Never happen here in the UK, take half pay voluntarily, for their performance.
Nope, here the CEO will want a pay rise, then take the bonus while denying any culpability. Then save money by introducing redundancies for the lower paid.
Unless pressured by the Government or a non deniable failure is found, in which case they take their bonus, take the shares, healthcare package, retirement fund and huge severance package and retire. Two months later they they come out of retirement, get a job on the old boys network and do it again.
Here they never lose out.

More cost effective
Is to buy a proper book not an ebook.
A proper book can be passed on to another family member
Given to charity
Used to help make a fire if shipwrecked on a desert island
Toilet paper in emergency
A weapon against a burglar
Prop up a wobbly table
Burn to keep warm
Ebooks can't do any of that.
Was used on Roman Legions if they failed to perform or ran away.
Also when a Roman soldier was found asleep on watch his mates were required to beat him to death.
Though I have a question, a Roman Century was made up of 80 men (not 100 as you might expect) so was Decimation 1 in 8 or was it decimal 1 in 10?
