Comment Motivation? (Score 1) 254

The fact that you're not already coding and Ruby couldn't hold your interest makes me wonder exactly what you want to do and why.

If you plan to learn to code mainly as a necessary step towards creating your dream RTS then I hate to piss on your fireworks, but you're wasting your time. It's just way too much dang work and frustration for something you don't find interesting and exciting in and of itself.

If I got the wrong idea and you do find coding interesting, forget about the RTS for a while and just worry about getting good at the basics.

Comment Dubious. (Score 1) 327

Despite moves by government to get Google, Amazon and Apple to admit they make sales in the UK and US, and therefore should pay tax on these earnings [...]

Tim Cook seems to claim the opposite:

I can tell you unequivocally Apple does not funnel its domestic profits overseas. We don't do that. We pay taxes on all the products we sell in the U.S., and we pay every dollar that we owe.

So is he a bare-faced liar, or is the article summary bollocks? Sources please.
