Workers of the World!
I always think of GDPR as something to do with East Germany. I checked and they were actually the DDR, so now I'm not sure what's going on in my head.

The big clue to me is the charge of " insubordination " which is not a thing outside of the armed forces.
I was told many years ago that I was being insubordinate, which caused me to call that particular boss Captain Mainwaring to his face for the next few weeks until I found a new job. (It was pretty much the last straw).
The margins in the printing business, at least where I Iive, are more like 3%.
In fact after working for a printing supplies company, I found that about a third of my customers were probably trading while insolvent.
I can't imagine it's that much different in the UK as it is easy to get into printing. Hard to make money though.
The massive multinational I work for has begun the process of pushing Oracle out the door. I have heard we spend something like $25 million per year in my region alone, which sounds about right.
It was their licensing practices that lead us to ditch them, and Apps won't make us come back.
DerekCurrie could have substituted Cisco or The United States of America for each of his points and it would still have been correct.
The area where China needs to pick up it's game is propaganda. No-one does that quite as well as our American friends.
Making primary school children stand up every morning to swear an oath of allegiance makes my skin crawl.
I do take your point FozzyBear but where I come from, lying to Parliament (or in a select committee is an imprisonable offence.
It is not clear from the article that the AT&T stooge made the promises under oath, but I am assuming it would have made no difference.
There are no consequences for the wealthy in the US anyway.
wakka wakka wakka
I feel a bit sorry for my government (New Zealand) as our mobile network gear has been supplied by Huawei since at least 2006 (that I know of, maybe longer) without any problems but the policy changed recently so I'm assuming the US leaned on someone and nobody will ever find out, because "National Security".
The problem being that China is our biggest trading partner, and will not be happy.
I wasn't even around 50 years ago.
I was cbars, and it wasn't that great really. I mean it was OK, but my Mum would hardly let me out of her sight which was a drag, and the tie my Dad wore to work was a huge embarrassment.
On the other hand Cream were amazing at the time, and the joys of progressive rock were still to come.
"Customers really like consumption-based pricing," he said. "You can have a cloud experience in private cloud, public cloud. What our customers want is that cloud-like experience with consumption-based pricing, with security, with financial visibility and transparency.
I'm not sure they do, but then I wouldn't expect anyone from HPO to really know what their customers want.
Based on a quick read of Mr. Mandel's Wikipedia bio, I would say it's a little from column A and a little from column B.
I don't think anyone could be quite as much of a by-the-book Republican as Josh Mandel:
High School quarterback
Stridently anti-gay (also looks to me like he's in the closet, but you know: Judge not lest you be judged)
Several (minor) corruption issues
It's like he's straight out of central casting.
Honest question here from the colonies.
Why are you not having another referendum? If this Arron Banks really has taken dodgy offshore money and used it in the previous one would the result not be considered questionable?
If the worst happens at least my next trip to the wonderful UK will be a lot cheaper.
So what you're saying is that Foxconn treats it's Chinese workers like slaves, and presumably wants to treat it's new US workers the same way?
Sounds about right.
Anyway, I don't blame the Chinese who don't want to go to Wisconsin. I've been there, and some of the poverty I saw looked more like India than the US. Also, an appalling climate.
That caught me eye too, but the first question I have is: with KDE* available, why does anyone use Gnome?
I mean it's the default desktop in so many popular distros that there must be a good reason, but I can't for the life of me work out what it is.
* Or Budgie, or Cinnamon, or XFCE etc etc...
The bit that jumped out at me was:
"Innovation in aviation has been a hallmark of life and industry in the United States since the Wright brothers first designed gliders in Dayton more than a century ago,”
Which, as we know pretty much killed the aero industry in the US until Mr. & Mr. Wright's patents expired.
Luckily, France (and others) ignored those patents and made aeroplanes.
The US got it's start ignoring the UK's patents, and China is doing similar.
Not that I am condoning theft, merely offering an explanation.
Why don't you just stay away?
I won't have that option, because I live here.
I am intending to take the same attitude, in the unlikely event I am asked to unlock my phone for the customs people.
I will be telling them no, then having my lawyer ask to see their evidence of "prior suspicion" if they decide to fine me.
Five grand is a lot of money, and I'd rather give it to my lawyer.
To be fair to the FCC, it is not the only group in the US government system that spends its time finding new ways to improve corporate profits.
The Pentagon is another one which springs to mind.
For what it's worth, I think AT&T have a point about Verizon's 5g tech also. It has been proved repeatedly that standards are a good thing for everyone. Can anyone remember CDMA?
China is a semi-captive market for Huawei.
I'm not sure about that, but they seem to be really good value for money.
They recently began flooding my country with ads, TV, online, everywhere and they make a compelling case too.
A young lady I work with bought one, it might be the Huawei 3i. It's a nice phone ( for roughly £150) with a good screen, quite fast, and an all right camera (not amazing, but she won't notice).
Not being overly familiar with Sir Clive's personal life I read the Daily Mail piece linked, and couldn't help thinking that the man must be a fool.
Seriously? An IQ of 159 (as if that means something) and marries a former stripper 39 years younger than himself? Makes me wonder how he manages to put his trousers on the right way around.
