The question then becomes: Who created the screen used in the Surface Studio 2?
Samsung seem to be involved but Wikipedia says it's developed in-house.

Vehicle registration plates were first used back in 1903
GB = Great Britain
UK = United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
GB and IRL for Ireland were the original designations.
Expanding GB to cover Northern Ireland has been argued over since Irish independence. It's still a sensitive topic.
Car racing was originally banned in GB but permitted in IRL. The first car races were therefore held in Ireland, which is why British racing cars were green.
These are funds for France, not the EU. I doubt whether a French company will ever be prosecuted.
Expect much more of this. Massive fines are designed to fill the coffers of the state, not to recompense the victims. Many countries are now using this for revenue, especially the USA.
By removing the requirement to put a date on copyrighted material, it becomes onerous to discover exactly when a such copyright expires. The ability to extend copyright also pushes the boundary further into the future. It seems like the plan of copyright holders is to keep extending it indefinitely.
But I assume you are prevented from joining your private equipment to the network.
That is equivalent to bringing your own books to work.
I also assume you are prevented from joining memory sticks to your office equipment. Remember the days when floppy disks were the way in for malware?
Having been made redundant four times in my career, twice by the same company, it all depends on the state of the local economy.
In the USA it's controlled at the State level rather than Federal. In some locations there are plenty of alternative companies to apply to. In others there are none which need your specific skill-set which is why it's useful to have a portfolio of skills.
Exactly. Chartered Accountant has legal status (Certified Accountant in the USA).
If you want to stake your claim to qualified status in any career, simply trying to hijack a standard term and make it imply qualifications doesn't hack it. BEng after your name says something about your academic abilities. Why not use that, if you've earned it.
The same argument exists regarding the term architect. I know highly skilled Software Architects (I've even been handed the title on occasion). I started before it became an academic study, but regard myself as a highly skilled professional.
Adding Professional to any subsidiary label simply says that you get paid for doing this work, rather than saying anything about your off-the-job training. I've rarely had any but have a long track record of achievement.
Microsoft have handled this in a cack-handed way but it looks like they're exploring the concept of Office 365 for free (with ads). This business model certainly seems to work for Google, Facebook, etc.
The target markets they mentioned are presumably places where few users are actually paying for the current product.
Cortana is on Windows 10 Mobile and can't be disabled. Shame they don't sell phones any more. I have one and it works extremely well, with monthly updates of the OS.
That said, I'm still mostly using Windows 7 on PC's but Cortana has now intruded itself into Skype. At least there's a way do refuse its Suggestions.
It reminds me of when a friend asked me to look at his Windows PC to find out why is was dog slow plus other oddities.
As I would normally do, run antimalware, run chkdsk, run Disk Cleanup.
Oops. he kept his important files in the Recycle Bin on the basis that nobody would look for them there.
We managed to recover some files using undelete tools.
I got blamed, of course.
Revenue (a.k.a. turnover) is already taxed. It's called VAT.
None of this grandstanding considers the obvious counter-strategies the digital companies will adopt.
All companies with shareholders are duty-bound to minimise their costs. One of the ways to do this is to use the existing laws in legal ways.
Until the OECD including Brussels and Washington can agree on a new taxation strategy there will be no real change.
You don't think the companys will trim their profit margin, do you?
Everybody is paying VAT on purchases, so it's not as if the purchasers are buying stuff tax free.
The UK won't get this tax to fly until the OECD creates a level playing field. Now that the USA has reduced its headline corporation tax, there's a chance for this to happen.
Shareholders will be the ones paying any new tax, significant numbers of which are pension funds.
There is no money tree. Ultimately, it's us who pay for all government spending.
In all cases, the accused is being forced to assist the accuser.
This is the underlying basis of the fifth amendment.
That's utterly different from searching a residence.
The basis of this particular case revolves around whether the authorities are looking for specific evidence that they have good reason to believe is present on the device or whether they're simply conducting a fishing expedition seeing what they can find.
I've used every version of Windows since 3.0, DOS before that and Mainframe since 1967, etc. Windows 7 edged out Windows 2000 (didn't like XP) and Windows 10 can be tamed without much effort.
I'd like to drop Xbox but only Cortana annoys me. Telemetry doesn't worry me too much as the UK is such a surveilance state already that nobody has any secrets any more. The ad-flingers don't impact me much as I de-personalise Firefox and don't actually *see* the ads anyway.
