Re: THis is just stupid cherry picking
Downvotes for simply pointing out that Arab countries have lower rape rates than so-called "civilized" countries? How very civilized.

I've been in IT since the times of the Spectrum 48K and I admit to have accidentally subscribed to Prime one month ago.
Basically I was in a hurry to buy something with my phone (first mistake) when presented with the usual page "Why don't you try Prime?" I skipped the large "Yes, something" button and obviously clicked the large "No, something else" button instead without actually reading it (second mistake).
As it turns out, the "something else" on the button was to subscribe to a slightly lighter level of Prime. For really refusing it at once, I should have clicked a small-print HTML link nearby with no rectangular button around it.
No real harm done though. I unsubscribed immediately and the deal expired yesterday. Basically I just got one two-day delivery for free.
Icera filed the dominant position complaint against Qualcomm back in 2010, and after 5 years still nothing had happened.
Then this week Nvidia announced that they do now have to dump the Icera division, mostly because of Qualcomm's dominant position.
Why the heck didn't the European Commission react as quickly as the Chinese authorities did? They could have saved ~500 jobs in Europe (Bristol, Cambridge & Sophia Antipolis).
