Advertising on television was forbidden so when satellite broadcasting was becoming mainstream, companies set up shop abroad in order to send adverts to the Swedish public.
Gambling is heavily regulated and almost a monopoly for the government. If I remember correctly only half of the income is returned to the gambling audience as winnings, so quite a substantial margin.
There is of cause quite a substantial number of politicians that is convinced that gambling is bad for the populace, and therefore should be banned.
The same breed of politicians also wanted to ban satellite dishes, Internet and all other means of getting information that was not approved by the government, all in the name of keeping swedes pure of thought. The same politicians usually keep North Korea and Cuba in high regards.
tax raising monkeys in charge
Very few in the current government has any academic credentials, no experience outside of political work and their version of leveling the playing field is to point at the neighbor and demand raised taxes for him because he appears to be better of then you are.
Complete waste of oxygen....
will never replace a real watch
My 60 year old seamaster recharges in seconds every morning, keeps the time within a few seconds/ year, is probably more environmentally friendly and will most probably be working exactly as advertised 100 years from now. Beat that Apple and maybe I will consider an upgrade...
Re: an accurate statement...
No, it is not dreadful to use ordinary programs. Having used a pro for several months i have found absolutely no problem at all running any windows program including development environments, office programs and a host of other more special programs needed in my daily work.
As for the price complaints, who cares? if you use it for work, the price is not important, if you only want it for laying in your sofa and surf the web, then by all means, by the cheapest android.
Good to see some improvements on the battery life, the only downside with the current pro version.
I simply love the pro, it has replaced my old development machine, runs SQL server and development studio, easy to lug around between conference rooms. Unlike my IPad it doesn't crash all the time when surfing web pages, excellent screen, basically it has replaced both the IPad and the laptop. Lack of apps?, who the fck cares, I have millions of windows programs to choose from.
Disclaimer, I may be mad, I also like the ribbon menu system, windows phone and thinks Linux is worth exactly what you pay for it....
WP8 works better than android.
Having used an Android phone I switched to a windows one, couldn't be happier, no restarts because it hangs, has all the apps I need (make phone calls,keep track of golf score, surf the internet) as an added bonus navigation works much better than on the android thingy. Has all the ones who bashes wp8 really tried it?
Still using the Omega seamaster my grandpa bought in 1962, manual. Doesn't need any upgrades, independent of electricity, doesn't report my position, buyinghabits or sexual preferences to the NSA and has all the functionality a watch needs i.e. shows the time.
We need more dumb devices and smarter people, not the other way around.
It's not even easy to buy the f*cking MS Surface, it was released for sale in in Sweden a week ago, but is only sold through consumer electronic stores.
Trying to buy one through the companys usuall hw provider: No luck
3 out of 4 retailers can't give you an invoice. I.e. don't sell to businesses.
The fourth had no clue on when or what they can deliver.
MS only sells in batches of thirty to companies.
So after one week of trying to buy one I'm close to giving up.
I am not surprised that sales are low if this is the way it is sold in the rest of the world.
Why benig the gun on board ?
Seems stupid to smuggle a weapon on board
Why not bring a portable 3D printer with you?
1. Carry the printer openly past security
2. Print the gun, and a knife perhaps
3. Have the gun blow up in your face
4. Get shot by an air marshal
5.Paradise and virgins galore....(May vary by your mental imbalance)
