All we know about driverless cars is that they run fine in perfectly good conditions. When a company like Google tells you that they have never ever ever crashed, I feel that they have never ever ever been tested properly. Most of the reasons why you test is to catch the bugs, of course, and I don't think Google has produced perfect software in any of their products, certainly not in version 1.  For that reason , outside limited routes and sequestered roads deliberately...
The 70M iPhones apple sold in Q4 last year was, according to cook in the "low teens" of the installed base. Assuming within 1% of 15% is mid teen the highest "low teen" would be 13%. That gives an install base of well above 500M. Since then a lot of buyers of the new 6 series have been switchers, and since there are few switchers the other way I would say it's trending towards 600M.
If given the choice between a shite actor who looks exactly like jobs and a good to great one who gets the mannerisms but doesn't look exact I'd go for the latter every time. I mean whose ever seen a napolean who looks exact?
I keep hearing this but where would they go to? If the EU enforces the law on tax universally the only option is outside Europe and that option is available already.You'll have to rephrase that.Well tips are part of the food costs of course. And it's not true that employers can always pass on costs to consumers, it depends on the competition.I do like one thing about tipping American style, it pays the best and busiest workers for being better and working the busiest...
It's interesting that Westminister type systems haven't then promoted more tyranny. Blighty seems free enough to me.
All countries do this. The UK ignored thousands of non tax paying non doms, which makes it a tax haven, and defends that position while dragging Apple in to talk.Companies like Apple can only owe corporation tax where they are based. Not paying that tax in Ireland is wrong but it doesn't mean the tax is owed in Oz.
They didn't collect taxes. Small businesses in Greece didn't bother to send in returns. Doctors didn't bother.Contrast with Germany, which didn't collapse and is a high tax high spend European country.Of course everybody sees what they want to in what was a financial collapse caused by over exuberant bankers.Edit:As Crowley said this is off topic so I'll stop now.
Not disagreeing. Just explaining the law. Of course the Germans and French are not subject to the same over views.
Don't know if it is that high but it is high. Cork used to be the European manufacturing hub and that building still stands and is crowded enough to force Apple to open a new one in the city centre.
I don't agree with the EU here but they are not retrospectively creating new laws, they are claiming that Ireland uncompetitvely allowed apple certain advantages that didn't accrue to other companies in Ireland. The 12.5% is legal.
