In my country this might be classed as anticompetitive as it means other MVNOs would be unable to compete as Google making its money elsewhere and loss making or at least cost only in mobile services would destroy the competing MVNO margins. However, as it would lower prices, the argument could be made that the benefit to cosumers (price I'm talkng here, not the Google strings attached) outweighs the anticompetitiveness.It does hasten the day that carriers become big dumb...
exactly. Why not an 'M' series chip with X64 and ARM components, and just like its A series SOC does not have ARM legacy components, the x64 bits won't have the legacy bits that exist in Intel chips. There is a performance boost right there.And as it goes in the Mac, it won't need to worry as much about the constraints of size, but with Apple's experience, the extra space will be able to be readily used.But I agree with other posters. It has to be better than Intel...
while state owned media certainly can be state controlled, that wasn't the question I was asking. It was why scarce taxpayers' funds were still being used to spend a kings ransom on a service already provided by a multitude of private sector providers. There is no market failure to be addressed and there should be a hell of a lot of more worthy uses for those dollars/pounds, like hospitals, schools etc.The issue I have with the licence ( it's a tax) is that a very poor...
Philosophical issue: why does state owned media still exist? Where is the market failure? And isn't the BBC licence terribly regressive?
becauseCanadians are too nice to kick out the harmless old biddy, who AFAICT is refusing to drop off this mortal coil asshe is trying to outlast her idiot son so her grandson can get the crown. Thus preserving the monarchy.Australian immigrant joke: You know what is the best thing about England? Paris.
Pearl Harbour happened because the Japnese wanted to build an empire in South East Asia and knew they had to neuter the U.S. navy so it couldn't prevent that ambition. The Japanese believed that colonialism was the path to power. An Asian version of Bismarkian power theory. The sanctions were in reaction to that, not something conjured out of thin air because they didn't like the nippon. Sheesh. What do they teach yanks in school today? At most the relevance of the...
actually, it's because Russia is a major gas exporter and the Saudis increase in oil exports has dropped the price of oil to a level that makes it hard for gas producers to compete with, thus causing flight of capital from Russia. The Saudi aim is to slow down global development of gas production from shale oil, coal seam gas etc as these are a threat to their dominance of energy production. Thus cheap oil slows down shale oil and CSG development and stays the day the...
8 million people with iPods also purchased music from real? I doubt that.
I find that hard to believe. Chrome books are just as crippled as net books.
To make you look like you are doing better than your competitors, or in this case, your competitors aren't doing well.
