Bet the activities also align with about another dozen countries interests, all of which have capabilities to easily make it look like Iran is doing it.

You do realise the author of this article would be sacked by theregister if they wrote a positive article about Google. Basically all Google has really done is get FCC permission for devices that are already legal in Europe, I'm guessing devices are already legal in many other jurisdictions as well.
Re: != Brexit dodging
The work will be carried out by German engineers. No doubt they will have to erect firewalls between its British subsidary and it german subsidiary. Pretty how BAE Systems have to run, where BAE System in the UK can't even know what projects some of its USA divisions are working on and presumably vise versa.
Re: I don't understand...
UK objected to the chinese being involve which is why they were rejected from the project and all of the military capabilities the system has are banned from being used by third party, which the UK becomes when we leave the EU. This rule was insisted on by the British in the first place.
Is Google purposefully breaking Microsoft, Apple browsers on its websites? Some insiders are confident it is
Re: Brittle software?
An given that chrome is open source it shouldn't take anyone to long to find that code, in fact it should stick out like a sore thumb. Let be honest they won't because Google isn't that dumb and the coordination needed between Youtube and Chrome teams would mean to many people would know about this evil scheme for it to stay secret for long.
Re: Brittle software?
But then surely that slows down everyone else's browsers hardware acceleration, unless Chrome hardware accelerator doesn't turn off, thus disproving your statement that you have to do this.
Chrome is open source, so it wouldn't be to hard to find the code that tells chrome what this div is for.
Some days you have to walk through a similar crowd to get to the local library. It something you kids will have to learn to navigate anyway, may have well start early when they actually let you keep a eye on them than later on in life. An Youtube is nowhere near as bad as the rest of the internet, if anything it one of the tamer places.
Re: "This week I learnt from youtube"
Youtube have by far the most free videos and tutorials, other sites have better content but often behind paywalls thinking Udemy here, some manufacturers also have excellent videos but often only specific to their product, these are more often than not hosted on Youtube anyway. Plus we are talking about Youtube here because this effort which is led by Google, using it Youtube platform.
Re: "This week I learnt from youtube"
Well unfortunately I don't know a plasterer, a electrician or a gardener or anyone who works with Unity3D, so before it would have require me to either pay someone or experiment or read a manual or run down to the library in the hope they got some book there that will clue me in, Youtube speed all of this up by a factor 10 and save me a infinite amount of money on top.
Google can't force other people to develope solutions to easily enable users to switch phones, not even Google is that powerful. It has built it own solution and suit its and majority of users needs. Various manufactures have provided their own solutions as well.
If you want a free open source way to do it, build your own, you could even use youtube as the beginning of the road to learn how to that.
So you did that instead of showing you children the tonnes of educational content that is on Youtube or showing them how they can use youtube to learn how to do new stuff.
This week I learnt from youtube, learnt how plaster a small wall, rewire a plug and one the video show what I was doing wrong when I was trying to animate some things in Unity 3D and I be looking at some recipes for the christmas bake off we are having at my workplace and not to long ago how move a rose bush (I think I did something wrong because my rose bush look like it dying! ). I know my brother law learnt to use to replace a mobile screens, use to see how to repair cars, my niece to apply makeup, my nephew use it to learn maths because his maths teach is rubbish according to him and he started to use to learn about how to fix his own PCs and replace parts in it.
It not Youtube that the problem, it that you didn't teach your kids to seek out this knowledge instead of watching pewdiepie and other stuff on Youtube. I will admit entertainment pay the bills at Youtube but it the educational content that give Youtube it useful purpose in the world.
Re: The favourite weapon of the 21st century
If the EU can justify the law then they should justify the law , they can't because they know this law is written to further enrich already very rich corporations and individuals and deny the rights of there own citizens to use that content in parodies or to share videos of events on the web such as wedding, birthday parties, street parties.
Which is the real reason they don't like the campaign Google and co are launching against them because it expose who they are really working for in this case an it not the people who pay their wages. An why they spend their time attacking Google instead of spending their time explaining the law to their own citizens and how the new law actually change things. As far as most citizens are concerns new laws should improve things for them, this law clearly doesn't. Even hated laws are accepted eventually if they lead to real improvements for normal citizen.
So come on EU explain how this law improves things for normal, no copyright holding individuals, exactly what benefits do we gain from it.
AI clinician trained to save humans from sepsis – and, er, let's just say you should stick to your human doctor
Re: The Wright Brothers
Unless you add in a second source of feedback and that the outcome of it own prescriptions. Given how there's a shortage of train personnel in most countries in the world, it likely AI will be use to relieve the work loads of doctors and patients in every country on the planet.
Re: Google Assistant is bilingual
Hope the word before or after no is easily identifiable as greek by the system. Google assistant can recognise different people voices, so perhaps it will build a profile of which language a person uses the most in the household and use that to give it direction on what the user want it to do.
We're all sick of Fortnite, but the flaw found in its downloader is the latest way to attack Android
The reason it is becoming harder for Apple to integrate new technologies is simply because Samsung an co have cotton on to the simple fact that they are the ones that are inventing the technology in the first place not apple. An they don't actually have to sale their hardware to apple, they can keep it in house for it own phones, like Samsung has largely done for its infinity screens.
Let be honest most of it is because the people writing those PDFs are force to make them public by law or convention. If it was their choice they would be printed off and locked in some filing cabinet where members of the public or the media or even MPs would have to fight through a pile of bureaucracy to get to them.
Re: "Without Google we still would live in a 90's hell of .NET dominated internet sites"
So it greedy to provide a free OS to all the manufactures. All the manufactures have to do promise is not to remove any of Google own apps and not support copycats of the OS under a different name.
That doesn't sound greedy to me at all, in fact it sound like a fair deal to me.
Re: Choice on Apple?
So google could just say they will stop updating android, lock down the code, encrypt it and no longer issue any new updates to non google made phones.
That the nuclear option for google and a pretty frightening one for all of the smaller OEMs, it would likely reduce competition down to just Apple, Google, and well Samsung, once they played catch up building their own OS or work on learning how to continually evolve a fork version of Android on their own without google support and infrastructure.
A whole host of mobile phone manufacturers would likely go bankrupt within months or withdraw from the mobile market.
So instead of increasing competition the EU would have decimated!
Anyway I think the commission completely ignoring apple in the market will be shown as illegal in a court of law and the commission will have to go back and redo all of it work taking Apple into account.
