They sure would like to have soldiers as motivated and brainless as them.
Of course, you can't win a war with soldiers like that - but as it has always been, the right people start profiting from war the minute it starts, not when it's over.
There's setting for
You can enable it for Music, Apps, Books and Updates.
It doesn't work by default if you're not on WiFi - but you can enable it, if you don't have bandwidth limitation.
I didn't know where this setting was, so I searched for "App" in the settings.
(1) shut down own public cloud
(2) be a azure+aws reseller
I have no idea how complicated AWS is, but can you honestly provide any value to the customer just managing AWS?
Scott McNeal once compared, x86-retailing to putting "bruises on bananas". These days, it's Rackspace + HP who look they are doing the very same thing in a different market.
As a reminder, the algorithm for "brotli" was invented in Switzerland and the word is basically the diminutive of "Brot", minus the Umlaut ("Brötli", the local Swiss dialect for what in US-America would be called a "bun" - if you've ever been to Germany/Switzerland/Austria and visited a bakery, you know what to think of).

That got him a full-out commendation from said manager but no love from those who had made the initial mistake (and failed to report it). But as he was already on his way out, he felt he could handle it.
Top-management is often very removed from day-to-day operations. The board even more so. The VW board, BTW, was very angry about the fact that it had to receive news of this "problem" from the news-outlets - even though it's clear that this scandal represents an significant business risk.
That's why the CEO had to quit and a couple of his top-brass are suspended, while lawyers and investigators from US and Germany are interviewing staff and trying to determine who did what and when...
I completely agree that trying to blame a couple of engineers for it is incredibly cheap and will come to haunt him in a big way.
It makes him look totally spineless. Unfortunately, it seems that the management-climate at VW fostered the careers of people acting like him: ass-kissing upwards, ass-kicking downwards.
Most of the digital "assets" we have (photos, videos) will be gone in a couple of years.
Lost in hard-drive crashes, failed migrations or obsolescence of technology.
Most of them were crap anyway. Those that you want to preserve: better make B/W prints...
