JeanPierreDeElle said:You say "the UK lost the protection of EU agreements when it left the Union". it's however more like that since BREXIT the UK is now protected FROM that bunch of un-elected bureaucratic buffoons !
And this USB-C regulation is the perfect example of the short-sightedness of leaving the EU. Devices sold in the UK will be affected by this legistlation whether the UK is in or out of the EU. All that's changed is that the UK has lost its seat at the table deciding on the regulations.

Tim Cook earned $260 million in 2020. So, even with the pay increase, that's still well over five thousands times more than lowest paid member of staff.
I was making about US$8/hr in the mid 80s, directly after earning my degree in computer science. Since the dollar was worth about 3x as much then as it is now, that's the same effective salary as I was making. No degree needed anymore. Nice work if you can get it.
It's nice to see Apple share more of its success with people on the shop floor. It's amazing what even a whiff of unionization can do!
