Re: EU Standard plug
Ah, the good old UK 3-pin combination power plug and caltrop system. Because an Englishman's home is his castle (or something), then it must be defended, and these plugs are the first line of defense providing far more than any alarm... Mostly due to the scream when an intruder steps on one.
If nothing else though, they are safe and reliable...
I dunno, but my first thought was "it's easier to switch on GDPR compliance for everyone than to spend time and money working out (in a global community) who was in what jurisdiction and when..."
A US citizen flies to France for a meeting, but his phone/laptop/whatever is set up in default full-snoop mode... Is he now subject to GDPR? Is his whole company?
An EU citizen travels to the US and her social media passwords are demanded at the border... While there, her phone tracks her movements for snoop-ads... But wait... Isn't she still protected by GDPR?
Seems just easier to extend it to everyone until a court warrant says otherwise - at which point you at least have right intent on your side if nothing else.
