For all the Surface trolls - nice quote from Benedict Evans to ponder
"how many PC applications have even been rewritten away from the mouse? More importantly, with all the innovation and investment now going to mobile, how may ever will? I have a horrible feeling that I'd buy this gorgeous thing, forget the pen in a drawer and waggle the mouse every morning to find the cursor...
Great stuff DED - for the sake of humanity, get booked for some airtime in the circus of business news (eg. Emily 'Is Apple Doomed?' Chang) and expose the lack of journalistic integrity in this shameless farce of advertising and entertainment pertaining to be news. Alway enjoy Horace - he corrects and disputes some of the babble from these studio autocue 'journalists'.
As an Irish Republican and a proud AAPL share holder for over 20 years - the Sinners need to wise up and avoid the US style political BS in business. Apple paid what was required off them under EU and Irish law at that time - they are mandated to that. If corrupt political feck wits in Dublin or Brussels got it wrong - who are they to require retro payments now. Apple helped sustain Cork in tough times and never left as so many US firms did, especially after politically orientated tax incentives and corrupt financial rewards expired - eg. the sad corrupt tale of Fruit of the Loom in north west Ulster.
If they're role in Ireland becomes a political BS game - they will probably adopt a path of least resistance and protect their employees, customers and shareholders
