Of course, the message wouldn't say that. It would be

Turns out the EU hates Apple too.

Apple should repay Ireland €13bn, European Commission rules - BBC News

Quote:
After a three-year long investigation, it has concluded that the US firm's tax benefits are illegal.

The Commission said this enabled it to pay substantially less than other businesses, in effect paying a corporate tax rate of no more than 1%.
Ireland are objecting, of course. But their standard corporation tax is already very low (12.5%). So it's all shady.

The Ireland government is taking the stance of, "we don't want your filthy money" because if they accept the money it will be admitting they were operating illegally when they made the special tax arrangements with Apple.

Funny, I had a friend who was one of the most vitriolic, holier-and-more-progressive-than-thou Bernie supporters on my Facebook feed, and he's "disgusted" with the EU's actions of "shaking down" American tech companies like Apple and Uber.

So I replied that I agree with Bernie and posted these tweets:




A mutual friend (more my friend than his) posted something like "So you disagree with Bernie?!" and he responded in a bitchy fashion.

Long story short, defriended over Apple's taxes, apparently.

No Control: Thoughts on the End of the Headphone Jack and the Future of Digital Music - Stereogum

Not that I ever cared much for the iPhone, but I will definitely never be getting one now. This is horrible on too many levels for me to summarise. This piece is really good, thankfully, so I don't have to.

OMG. That's horrific. I hadn't even considered the DRM part.

But you know, people don't give a shit, so I don't give a shit. If you pay $600 or whatever for a phone without even researching it, only to discover it doesn't do the basic stuff you expect it to do, then good. You deserve that. I hope it eats all your music and you cry a lot.

(Also thanks for the link because I just just learned from the sidebar that Wovenhand has a new album out.)

Apple: Our way or fuck you!

Oh look another proprietary connection that forces you to either buy an apple licensed product which only works on their phone or the more expensive and still unreliable bluetooth version.

Someone needs to make an apple logo with a ton of dongles coming out of it.

My response to Apple and the elimination of the 3.5mm headphone jack is to tell them to go fuck themselves. Eliminating it will result in me never purchasing an iPhone.

So, I really need to stop using Apple's Podcast app. It has been routinely failing to actually download podcasts. It also crashed while I was driving today.

IOS 10 has several other annoyances, too. They made notifications more annoying, harder to read and I'm pretty sure the notifications display is buggy.

In other news, Apple are going to move into Battersea Power Station, centralising all their London staff (Cork will still be bigger).

Apple set to become Battersea Power Station's largest office tenant | News | LondonlovesBusiness.com

I immediately thought of the relevant image, and as expected, someone's done it already:
