Re: Opportunity

I'm probably an antique so take this with the appropriate dose of salt but..

Shiny metal (possibly recycled) - useful and likely someone will buy somewhere (maybe at a lower price though)

We put Huawei's P20 triple-lens snapper through its paces

Ian 69

Am I that much of an antique..

That if I wanted high end photography I'd buy a sodding camera?

I love having Maps, Google, Wikipedia, the usual crap.. on the phone so I'm surely not that hard headed but seriously, if I need such an exceptional image I wouldn't expect a phone to pick up the slack.

I wonder if the Galaxy S10 will have a rocking chair function?

Europe dumps 300,000 UK-owned .EU domains into the Brexit bin

Re: But surely...

Absolutely agree.

Joe public probably won't care, the IT crowd won't be listened to but I would wager the financial/legal bods don't just smell blood in the water - they're mixing it with Vodka, Tabasco and a dash or two of Henderson's (I'm from Sheffield).

But surely...

If this all came out in the open in early 2018 then how can last quarter 2017 represent a triumph? Surely they've shrugged off something that didn't exist at the point the earnings call was made?

I would have thought with the way the world is now, the next 12 months will be the proof in the pudding for Krzanich.
