Re: Well done Samsung
What will be more interesting will be when someone add up the cost of the "bill of materials" and we see how much markup there is.

Like a lot of EU directives the UK is doing while quite a large part of the rest of the EU just ignores. Germany has only just started and they are only doing it for " large consumers with average annual consumption in excess of 10,000 kWh "
This threshold will be lowered to 6,000 kWh in 2020, which applies to approximately 15% of electricity consumers. With over 50 million metering endpoints nationwide, this will result in the installation of around 7.5 million smart meters across Germany. The majority of German households will remain unaffected, given average consumption hovers around 3,500 kWh.[/quote]

Given we are leaving the EU we can should not have to install smart metres any more.
[quote]"There are no compelling reasons that I can see to do business with the Chinese, so long as they have the structure in place to reach in and manipulate or spy on their customers.

You could change Chinese to any other country and it is just as valid!
[quote]In a notice [PDF] sent out to vendors earlier this week, Intel said that the Itanium 9700 series would take its final order on January 30 of 2020 with the final shipment date to take place on July 29, 2021.[/quote]
18 months wait for delivery for a processor which will be by then over 4 years old, given this and how it failed does make me wonder who would still want to buy them.
I agree Ads should not need to run a extra cade in order to be displayed. If the ad wants to animate/play sound/expor get bigger when moused over I would think that the browser already is able to do this without needing extra code.
All that should sent is picture/sound/URL and nothing more.
[quote]By this it means, "on average", equal pay for equal work in the same or similar roles after accounting for things like "tenure, performance, time at grade level" et cetera.[/quote]
Sure they are "not", things like tenure and time at grade level should not be a factor in pay. If your doing the same job and your performance is the same you should get the same pay it should not matter how long you have been there, or how long you have been doing that job. The only thing that should matter is how well you do it.
Including things like "tenure and time at grade level" is going to tend to hit women (yes some men do instead) due to them mostly being the ones you may take a break from work to raise children.
I would agree Chaotic Neutral, a good definition of it is:
A chaotic neutral character follows his whims. He is an individualist first and last. He values his own liberty but doesn't strive to protect others' freedom. He avoids authority, resents restrictions, and challenges traditions. A chaotic neutral character does not intentionally disrupt organizations as part of a campaign of anarchy. To do so, he would have to be motivated either by good (and a desire to liberate others) or evil (and a desire to make those different from himself suffer). A chaotic neutral character may be unpredictable, but his behavior is not totally random. He is not as likely to jump off a bridge as to cross it.

Ask a negative question and the result is going to be negative!
Only 10,544 out of 50,0000 respond or about 21.1%. So of the those 50K sent a survey only 4027 or 8% where negative affected enough to respond to the survey.
Now if it also also asked if they had been positively affected the survey could be considered to be a little more balanced.

If you were relying undocumented/ unsupported APIs to do thing you have to realized that they could be turned off , or broken tomorrow.
