When did Thailand become the world's largest country by population?

More Warnings About High-Frequency Trading

mister.woody Re:Simple solution, introduce a microtransaction t (500 comments)

It would be nice to have a microtransaction tax, but it wouldn't solve the problem. Firms would just move their money to China where there are no taxes on transactions. It is a bit like the internet. The more rules you have, the more people would move away from you.

I usually do not buy strawberry from south America (just because I like to support local farms and I tend to believe that it is healthier as well). I have strong problems to buy strawberries that come from Mars.

mister.woody 4" screen (1 comments)

This seems to be the only information from TFA:

Among the expected enhancements for Apple’s latest smartphone include a larger, 4-inch screen that can help it compete with the bigger displays found on rival devices like the Samsung Galaxy S III, which Apple is filing an injunction against after a favourable patent infringement ruling.

and I doubt it is true.
