A major reason why these are flying off the shelves is because they are now the Kodi device of choice... i find it a little strange that a tech review didn't even mention this.

'The last four major European "incidents" were all carried out by people who were supposedly "on the radar" of the relevant security service.'
Yes each awful killing is followed up with a loud demand for more powers to monitor the local population and a very quiet admission that the perpetrators were already known to the authorities...
Maybe this says more about me and my alcohol consumption than the author.... but the only recipe that would even remotely fit the bill after a session (or more likely in the closing stages of one) is the Red Dwarf chilli chutney egg sarnie.
All others are far too complex and dangerous to make while buckled...
nope, you can't put them all in the same boat, follow the money.
Amazon - makes money from selling you stuff and services and a cut from providing a sales platform for 3rd parties
Apple - makes money from selling you kit and services and takes a cut from sales of software
Samsung - makes money from selling you kit (and presumably takes a cut from potential services)
Google - makes money from selling advertising based on information gathered about you.
Spot the one that you wouldn't want listening to you....
PPE seems to be the standard route to being an MP these days. You really should be able to think (and more importantly think critically) to complete a PPE degree... the trouble is that knowing how to perform any technical or intellectual skill doesn't actually make you more compassionate, empathetic or humane.
A big splodge of humility would probably be the best lesson we could give MPs rather than teaching them a bit about computers and stuff.
Edit - OK CaptainHook got in first but still worth saying...
Reading the comments.... are we really engaged in the shared delusion of believing any of this? Who, other than the revenue collectors of every country where Amazon sells stuff and services, believes that Amazon is a failing business?
I would fall off my chair in amazement if i clicked on Amazon UK and it wasn't there any more.... and so would you I would guess. How would that reaction tally with a company that is apparently haemorrhaging money?
Maybe we should just give Jeff Bezos a knighthood (or whatever floats his boat) and ask him nicely to fix the global tax system.
Trust me, they've all read it.... it’s basically the first book studied on a PPE course.
That, of course, doesn't mean that they understood it. If they did understand it then the chances are that they've managed to convince themselves that it’s no longer relevant because it doesn't suit their purposes once in power.
The key here is that José Manuel Barroso has officially reponded to a Scottish MEP on the question of an Idependant Scotland automatically joining the European union. (The URL is too long, use your search engine of choice and look up "José Manuel Barroso response scotland")
He basically said NO, and in follow up interviews he added that Scotland would have to, as a new member, join the Euro (i'm paraphrasing here...)
This puts paid to the claims that Scotland could remain linked to the pound and casts a different light on the whole situation.
I'll let you put your own interpreation on the icon.
"I remember warning people of the Rasberry Pi hypes and how it wasn't really powerful enough for a HTPC and all I got was downvotes...
Turns out a year later I was right. I never owned one."
Just cause your mates can't do it....you should borrow one off your mates and try yourself. RPI with Openelec works just fine for me. it struggles with 10+GB MKV files but if you're trying to stream something a little less extreme it's the dogs.
