Recipe for disaster?

The new style apple turnover mainly features BS with a sprinkling of Orwellian double speak.

Pretentious Marketing department.

Received this somewhat pretentious marketing email from them within the last hour.

And when you try to unsubscribe, the page generated is a 404 error message.

I think I'm justified in calling them knob-heads

"Hey Customer,

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Spotify serving malware, no escape from reality

armyknife

Thanks for the reminder to Uninstall it.

Thanks for the prompt, that got me around to un-installing it.

Bizarrely after doing that I now have 8mb less on my C drive than before, so off I got manually hunting for all of its components and dettritous left on my system. Shows you what a crap piece of software/adware spotify free edition is.

Better to roll-out smart consumers, but that would require some investment in education and an interest in understanding things by the customer.

Old ways?

In retrospect there were certain advantages to countries formally declaring war on each other and then fighting to a non-total victory or negotiated peace treaty.

Amazon drone tests in UK

Leasons from the Past?

They seize ships in ports when the owners can't pay fees and taxes; why don't we shoot down or intercept these drones until Amazon starts paying UK taxes?

Join Uber in a tale of rent seeking and employment law

armyknife

Why Am I Not Surprised.

"Tyler Cowen has used this as an example of why it's sometimes easier (for which read 'better') to simply ignore the law and regulation."

Astonishing that a modern capitalist should suggest such a thing, maybe he works for a renegade company like VW, Amazon et al.
