Unfortunately, the Irish Government will spend millions to fight any ruling like this. with about 206bn in state debt and a shit load of companies playing this game, they don't see that one side of the balance sheet could make the other go away.

That's pocket change compared to the €17Bn the Irish government is actively fighting to NOT get paid from apple!
To put that in context, 1 company has possibly avoided paying 20% of the bailout, 25% of the 2016 budget, and equal to the annual tax take to year end May 2015!
They have promised that if apple is ordered to pay this money, they will take the matter to the European courts to argue that they shouldnt' get it!
"Daisy Bell" was composed by Harry Dacre in 1892. In 1961, the IBM 7094 became the first computer to sing, singing the song Daisy Bell. Vocals were programmed by John Kelly and Carol Lockbaum and the accompaniment was programmed by Max Mathews. This performance was the inspiration for a similar scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
