Threaten tariffs so the market buys kit now before the prices go up which makes it look like the market is buoyant.
Then delay tariffs until wholesalers have stocked up for Christmas which keeps the supply level high and consumers can spend in the run-up to Christmas.
Then once tariffs are in place (after domestic electronics firms have had time to adjust their supply chain), people will buy US due to the price differentials on imported kit.
so... Michael O'Leary's deal... As part of the deal, his current pay will be halved to €1m and he will be given share options at a fixed price (that he would have to buy for €111m - they are not a gift).
Conditions (one of):
- double the current share price to €21 (currently €10 with a previous high of €18.60 in 2017)
- RyanAir to make €2bn+ profit in a year (€1.45bn in 2018)
The €99m figure comes from the potential resale value of those share options if he takes them up AND he raises the share price as per the conditions. It's not guaranteed but it seems like a good deal for the investors who haven't been paid a dividend in a few years.
Of course, in order to meet the necessary conditions, they'll need the 737-Max to be re-approved or they'll need to find additional saving in flesh-bags or chargeable add-ons like... seat belts, use of the toilet etc.
Find a decent bar-person, tip them (it doesn't need to be much) and smile and thank them.
For this, the next round you'll be served a lot quicker because we'll remember:
a) your face
b) the drinks you want
c) that you were courteous to us
Solution looking for a problem methinks.
Icon - what not to be or you'll be earning penalty queue time.
"What’s your solution? How do you propose to ensure that the hardworking men and women of law enforcement sworn to protect you and your families maintain lawful access to the information they need to do their jobs?"
erm... we don't. This was your idea. We told you it can't be done. If YOU think it can, then have at it.
A robots.txt file would only say "don't index these images" to GoogleBot which is the opposite of what the claimant wants. He wants Google to index his images so he can get traffic from their search engine.
However someone has scraped/aggregated his images and the Google index shows them above him for his IP (images). That not only means they are getting his traffic and reducing his ad revenue, but also that Google may be micro-penalising him as not displaying original content if it views the aggregator as the original source of the images.
Nope. Gates saw people transitioning to thin clients effectively running all their business apps through a browser. He predicted this (not the only one) and knew that it might not be windows they would be running on. MS have spent considerably on providing technologies to either create or host these online platforms. We are creatures of habit (mostly) so very few people are running everything through a browser, although it is now technically possible.
@EricWiltsher... you genuinely think that trolls and terrorists (not happy to have those in the same sentence) would be putting up genuine contact details?
It's never been difficult to use fake information when setting up a domain. That's primarily because most registrars only care about the money. WhoIs information has never been particularly useful unless you're dealing with genuine companies and even then it's often out-of-date.
Or - and I realise this is a really out-there comment - HP could put a power switch on their keyboards/mice so you could disable the keyboard/mouse to clean.
Oh wait... this is what they're doing... but they're gonna charge the earth for it... and probably include Bluetooth, ... and some kind of Cloud linkup... and an iPhone app... and a warranty recharge after 10,000 wipes... and make it a virtual button.
