What laptop? Maybe he's storing stuff on a server in Iceland, or even back in the US. Who knows.
He must mean the rights of Saudi MEN. I don't think the women there had any to begin with.
Two simple reasons for that:
1) Your government realizes that they don't have a say in the matter. Don't forget the Lissabon treaty is not really a treaty. Germany is no longer a sovereign state.
2) By letting the EU do something "for the people" rather than doing it themselves they improve the image of the EU with the naive citizens. Good cop/bad cop standard story.
ANY EU based firm.. which then funnels its profits elsewhere. Also to "produce" something in EU means what exactly? Assemble the final product? Solder the motherboards? A EU assembled phone with an EU produced CPU can't use Korean memory- and American graphics chips? The basic chemicals used must all come from Germany and be based on Norwegian oil? How far do you want to take this and to what effect?
Can it grow? Sure. Can it grow significantly? Sure! Can it be the next Facebook/Google? Maybe.. doubtful.
Function doesn't make money per se. Shiny often does.
Asking around, most people in my corner of the world seem to like the new interface.
IMHO that's just her way of waking everybody up and making it clear this boat is changing its course. With time, I'm sure people will be working remotely once again.
Sure it may, but why think that without evidence. Do you see any correlation between vaccines and anti-biotics that we don't?
Something is subpar when it doesn't live up to expectations. Some degree of side-effects is actually expected, within limits that wouldn't change a vaccine is subpar or not.
That's bothering you because you didn't have your loonie shot. Now, THAT's loonie!
It really depends on the situation. Being Germany it's possible that all the average worker needs is SAPGUI, which doesn't really differently on Linux than it does on Windows.
This kind of "help" occurs all the time though. I'm forced to buy health insurance in my own country, even though foreign plans would cover me just as well at a lower cost. I'm forced to pay for my retirement fund even though I've already provided for my days as a senior through other investments. Hell, I'm forced to fasten my goddamn seatbelt! Not that I wouldn't use it, but I certainly haven't been given any choice in the matter!
(If this were true) it's about priorities. Sure they would want Anonymous to look strong, but certainly not stronger than Israel.
How is this not a real attack to begin with? Just because they cooperate in the medical business doesn't mean they have the right to penetrate each others IT systems.
At Hong Kong airport they never complain about my bottle of water. When flying to US they'll have a second check at the gate where they remove bottles from your hand luggage but to other destinations they simply don't seem to care.
