I'm surprised that a Russian asset can be President of the USA

I use a 10" Chinese Android 7 tablet as a dedicated large screen navigation computer in my vehicle.
Has a nice hires screen set up with large fonts for easy visbility and a data SIM
Its main app is Google Maps - gives a much better perspective than a smartphone
Uses 3 location systems: GPS, GLONASS and the Chinese one - almost instant location data
- DigiHUD Speedometer for a GPS based speed display
- Foobar for music from an SD card to the vehicle sound system
and I'm good to go
I use a smartphone for .... voice and SMS - and very occasionaly, a laptop when I'm away from home
Horses for courses!
I have an ALDI SIM (uses Telstra's network)
In JAN 2018 for $15 pm I got:
- unlimited fixed / mobile / SMS
- 1 GB data
In NOV 2018 the offer is
- unlimited fixed / mobile / SMS
- 2GB data -< [unused data rolls over] -<[1.5GB]
FYI I consider Telstra to be a compond word "fucking_Telstra"
The revenues (to Telstra) haven't risen but the consumer benefits have
Compared to the previous grotesque costs this is a new reality!
It will continue - think what the real costs of bandwidth must be!
Bad news for Telstra shareholders inc. the OZ government
Not my problem.
I had a similar problem with a neighbour who had 2 barking dogs in a very quiet location.
After preliminary testing with a hand held air horn, which resulted in some behaviour modification but not a total cessation, I had a remote controlled 104dB sounder installed facing their property.
They were dog owners but not completely stupid or untrainable.
It took time to train them to understand that ANY dog noise was followed by about 20 seconds of VERY loud noise from the "Dog Horn"
They left - years later, their house remains unsold. Karma's a bitch.
Tranquility was restored.

It's best to see this as a clever move to increase the computer literacy of the population.
The intended purpose: to increase the revenues of Big Media (including Rupert the Unspeakable) will not be achieved
I (sort of) agree
Amazon US (real Amazon) has:
- a thriving Japanese business (amazon.co.jp)
- no problem shipping to Japan and charging Japanese tax, which is more complex than Australia's simple 10%
Amazon Japan, to some extent Amazon UK (don't know but I suspect Amazon Germany +++) have relatively competitive prices ie. they want to do business in that country
Amazon AU will end up as a business school case study in failed market entry.
EBay (and also Gearbest, BangGood , AliExpress +++) have taken the tax changes in their stride and are eating their lunch
Their offerings are orders of magnitude more comprehensive than Amazon AU (last time I looked there were no sellers of Samsung SD cards, FFS)
Amazon AU wasn't bothered by surging demand ... and won't be until they have a competitive offering .... talk about leaving money on the table!
I have my own domain
I give each "requester" their own email address composed from their domain [email@example.com]
From then on it's trivial to identify "requesters" who have been compromised - their emails are also usually flagged by my provider's spam detection software and:
- cease dealing with them
- blacklist any email using the compromised details
I'm a big Buffett fan but his tech track record is patchy
From Forbes "Buffett's IBM investment was a disappointment. As of last May, he had lost about $800 million on IBM, according to Business Insider. Even if he broke even, he would have been better off in an S&P 500 index fund -- which has risen 138% since his purchase inSeptember 2011."
"Investment Formulae can work..."
It sure can .... just look at Warren and Charlie
"...but only in the short term"
Er no, just look at Warren and Charlie - their "formulae" works in the long term
Perhaps, if you don't know what you are talking about, it's better to STFU
"Munger having a I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. type moment/breakdown."
Er no, amanfromMars 1 having:
a) a brain snap
b) an, I don't understand but I'll comment anyway, moment
c) both of the above
Warren and Charlie have got serious form in capital allocation - it's what they do.
They've forgotten more about capital markets than you'll ever know.
They also have very robust crap detectors.
Perhaps you could post a brief outline of your capabilities in capital markets
I suggest that you go all in on "markets reorganisation/AI alignment", whatever that means.

The article is talking about the problems with backhaul.
The last mile works fine for most people.
But there is no point if the telcos do not provide sufficient capacity at the other end of the wire.
[correct - my personal lowpoint
Ookla NetGauge Result
Down: [*0.9 Mbps*] Up: [*4.3 Mbps*] Latency: [*84 ms*]
Sydney Server 20/07/2017 20:29+10
SkyMesh nbn™ fixed wireless service (Aggregated)
Peak information rate: 25/5 Mbps]
And the NBN charges the telcos for the privilege of providing backhaul, which is why they are not doing it.
[incorrect .. and contradicts your previous point]
Leave the "fraudband" politics behind and stick to the facts.
[good advice ... pity you didn't take it]
Another member of a completely clueless political class.
Ask the US government how they went when they wanted Apple to break their encryption.
Ask Malcolm the Clueless how the repeal of the Laws of Mathematics is going.
Ask George Metadata to define the difference between his arse and a hole in the ground
