Microsoft Develops Analog Keyboard For Wearables, Solves Small Display Dilemma
"Have you ever tried hunting and pecking on a miniature keyboard that's been crammed onto a smartwatch's tiny display? "
Smartwatch? You young whippersnappers, you don't know what 'tiny' is.
We had Casio Calculator watches in the eighties.
Those had real tiny, real hardware buttons that had to be pushed hard.
And now get off my lawn.

'Must be "stultia gravis" cases'
"Did you mean stultitia gravis? (extreme stupidity). Kinda funny which word you'd misspell when trying to appear superior to the masses."
I was using the Facebook spelling. :-)

Apple Faces Large Penalties In EU Tax Probe
"Meh, corporations will simply set up mailboxes on Mars, much like they do in Luxembourg or Lichtenstein, ..."
Bullshit. I'm from Luxembourg and those companies have real offices here, they're just here because for the moment they profit from the low VAT of 15% here because of the current EU law, next year they will move on, when customers will have to pay the VAT to their local governments.
We can actually go to the Paypal Bank Offices and raise hell if there's a problem. :-)
Lichtenstein is something else entirely, there it's the foundation laws.
Scientists Seen As Competent But Not Trusted By Americans
"Unlike the EU that closes Nuclear plants when the science clearly shows they actually save lives."
Strangely enough, the Germans had so much solar and wind power without the nukes, that they exported it to countries for so low a price (sometimes for free) that those countries had to shut down reactors too. Especially the Swiss were not amused.
And the 'saving lives' part I will believe when the ashes are cooled down in 200.000 years without hurting anybody.
And if the sites and the guards will have been paid by the energy companies for those 200.000 years.
