Italian Supreme Court Bans the 'Microsoft Tax'

r1348 Re:And so therefor it follows and I quote (353 comments)

Development cost and market price are not necessarily connected (see Android) and Apple is free to distribute R&D money among its divisions as it pleases her. Being the manufacturer of both hardware and software, it can freely claim that the market price for OSX is 0, but then restrict its licence to force installation only on Apple hardware. Plus, you're free to install whatever OS pleases you on Apple hardware.

If, say, HP or Dell claimed that Windows cost is 0, then they would have to demonstrate that they got it for free from Microsoft, which they didn't. The meaning of this ruling is that a contract with one party cannot force you into a contract with a third party.

Too Much Privacy: Finnish Police Want Big Euro Notes Taken Out of Circulation

r1348 Re:To their defense (314 comments)

It would do nothing to curb criminality, it's just another excuse to privatize the circulation of money. Want a cash-free economy? Fine, give me my free State debit card.
