Trump slipped up, tonight
He threatened sanctions at France for daring to institute a digital services tax to reclaim money Silicon Valley are dodging tax on on revenues made in France
UK is planning similar, and rightly so
France is doing Trump's job for him
France's tax rate is not relevent to the principle here
The issue is America is getting tax money from profits made on foreign customers
Where as those foreign countries are not
It makes Trump seem hypocritical, Wizard
The purpose isn't to punish them, Joey
How so? Silicon Valley are not paying their fair share of taxes on revenue generated abroad
3% on revenue is equivalent to around 15% corporation tax assuming a 5% profit margin
If Trump wants fairness, he would be negotiating a tax-sharing scheme
I'm not about to criticise or select a rate, Joey, i'd imagine they set the rate to be roughly in line with their existing corporate tax rate
But in principle, I totally support it
I'd prefer a cororate revenue tax, personally, rather than taxing profit
Of course you would say that, Coolitic, you would prefer the world run by a corporate dictatorship
That's why you have it apply to all corporations
The French tax isn't a "silicon valley tax", it's a digital services tax - it applies to their own companies too
If Discord makes revenue in my country, i want it paying tax in my country
Amazon should pay tax in my country on revenue generated in my country
YT should pay tax in my country on revenue generated in my country
Google and Amazon need breaking up, too
Vertical integration and overwhelming market share
Illegal and uncompetitive practices
Google banning competitors from their market place
Amazon are very large in the hosting and backend services sector too, ET
Similar political interference there
These industries alongside social media need regulating
Nicest solution would be to force digital service companies to open companies in the countries they operate in and ensure all revenue from that country is passed through and taxed via that company
But tbh, i'd prefer they were regulated first as a matter of priority
Double tax is your problem, Coolitic
It's up to the USA not to double-tax digital service companies based in the USA
And stuff is double taxed all the time
By the USA as well as other countries
I can understand the spite - silicon valley is openly malevolent and evil at this point
If they went, competitors would take their place
People wouldn't need to go without it
I code for a living, darling, i'd be fine
You realise Google Facebook and Twatter don't have the monopoly on user interface
The Internet was a -much- better place before normies ruined it
I'm baffled by this insistence that if facebook and twitter went away, suddenly nobody would be able to use a computer
What we're demanding is a level playing field with objective and fairly/equally applied rules, protections against monopolies, protection against political intereference and bias, and appropriate taxation
It'd be like brexit - a shock followed by period of high entropy as people move platforms, and then back to normal
If YT didn't exist, that custom would go elsewhere
There are working and scalable alternatives for all these companies
That's like claiming peasants oppressed under a feudal system are communists because they care about not dying of starvation
Youtube lacks a working monetisation model
In places of high crime and no jobs at a push
That being said, the problem with housing in the UK is mainly a problem of mass immigration and retarded government policy which saw rich people usurp the housing market at taxpayer expense
w/o steam, an alternative would have come along
It's fucking awful in the UK, Joey
The rental prices are similar in the UK for smaller houses, but on roughly half the salary
Wages have been static for 10 years while house prices have not been
The PC gaming market, in the event of sudden death of Steam, would fragment, but would recover
When the interest rates went to almost zero, housing became an investment class that attracted a shit ton of money - added to which the government pays 'housing benefit' a welfare which covers rent, and thus you created an investment class whose profit came at the expense of the tax payer
Combine that with the fact we're an island with limited scope for expansion, and mass immigration, and you have a recipe for house prices rising faster than wages for prolonged periods
I personally hate steam because it doesn't sell games
If a platform has the means and right to arbitrarily deprive you of your ability to install and play a game your bought, then it's fundamentally flawed
It's really nothing to do with DRM
All steam need to do is change their "backup" option to include a standalone installer
Why the fuck does it need a reason?
Doesn't matter how big the client is - the fact is it is a client at all, and they can arbitrarily block your access to it
You need the client to restore from the backup you daft sod
The DRM should be done via webservice
It's deliberate building in of deprecation
That's why I argued at the outset you're renting the game, not buying it
But on games on CD/DVD or older, provided you have the hardware you can always use them
And what's more important, is given the direction of travel, you will find people being banned on Steam for poltiical views or in-game behaviour
Or whatever the platform is at the time (Stadia etc)
Gespa - if you decide you are going to stop supporting an operating system, then that is planned obsolenscence
The reasons are entirely reasonable
Look at Microsoft's website, they state at the outset when they are supporting software until
Yes, Coolitic, the reasons for doing it are understandable
Me being a boomer doesn't mean you're right when you're clearly not
For someone bitching about strawmen earlier, you're certainly trotting plenty out, COolitic
They did only one thing wrong - they should have made those legacy products entirely offline, removed the DRM from them
I don't have an issue with Steam as it is, other than some retarded bugs
I hate that they make out you're buying games when you're renting them
Shove the EULA up your distended anus, Gespa
That's not what open-source means
It was the being forced to change that made me fall out with Steam because of the way they ended the support
Ironically it was Microsoft -sensible- decision to allow the installation of WIndows 10 without a license key that saved me
I have an old laptop running W7, it's got the specs to run W10 but won't because W10 is buggy and there is no value for M$ in fixing it
if it's got 2gb of ram, it should
but chance are it won't because fuck M$
you shouldn't, it's well supported
it'll be the bios that'll fuck you up if anything
hasn't it offered you a w10 upgrade via windows update?
W10 installer has issues with some legacy bioses, Coolitic, it's why it won't install on my old laptop
Yes, it does, but not all of them
Well that's not Microsoft are telling me
You can download the iso's from their website, System11
Windows update on my laptop says otherwise, Gespa
Could resize your partition and install on that, System11
I quit trying to upgrade my laptop because it wasn't sufficiently important, and microsoft "professionals" were just being shit
I tried Linux for a year - it's shit
Tried a few different ones, but mostly they suffered from the thing linux has suffered since i first tried it 20 years ago - poor hardware support
That and Steam linux support... just isn't there yet
Better than it was the last time i tried it, but still not there yet
I found it frustrating as the last thing I wanted to do after a day at work is come home and have to fuck around trying to build drivers and edit config files
THat's very much a thing for teenagers and bright eyed young idealists like Coolitic
Only beef I had with Steam was their EOL methodology. As a time-poor boomer and sperg, it should be obvious to understand why. It's a shame you and Coolitic were so antagonistic
But I still use Steam, and am reasonably content with it
I'm sorry for shoving a EULA up your anus
Unless you enjoy that kind of thing
I crawl out of bed to find this
By the way, thank you for your service Laucivol
Vir joined the Labour party...
I like Jeremy Corbyn... as a person
Sounds like someone's been watching "We got a problem/Crimebodge"
Can you suck a golf ball up a garden hose though?
Mikey is definitely a twink
This is true, June, however the same armed forces are also utterly required for defending -us-
And you want them onside in a revolution
Who's that, God, Porochenko?
The Russia-facing guy was removed in a pseudo-coup some years ago
The one before the one before the comedfian
Agitated by foreign NGO's funded by people including George Soros
I'm not saying the guy was clean, he was a Russian shill, just that the place is a mess
You have to care about Ukraine, they're the buffer between Europe and Russia
Same reason you should care about what your neighbour does, June
I think Russia would be better in Europe's sphere
lol, it morphed, not died
it morphed into russo-china
Joss Whedon? Nah, he's still OK
Wil Wheaton is the massive cock holster
What is a 'tranny supporter'?
That's disappointing, PureEvilPie needs to have his anus ruined
What is it about people with shitty politics like PureEvilPie always picking on people?
He should do, Jack, he has no opinions of his own
ffs Jack, just send them dick pics and get it over with
those others present who appear obsessed with you
hey, that's unfair - i'm old and shrinking
tallness in men correllates negatively with iq
You're quite a long way underweight, Marie
Stop taking crack already
Healthy weight for 150cm is 48kg
I don't think i've ever met anyone that short
I couldn't countenance dating a midget like Lunemarie, i'd be terrified of breaking her
Taking bets on LuneMarie actually being 12
I wish you all the best, @lunemarie
They aren't familiar with women, Marie
Everything causes back problems later in life
Using computers for work + pleasure fucks your back up
Work on your core strength, folks
Consequences have never been the same for some time now
What's on your mind, Marie?
There are no single ladies on the internet, Rolli
What's confusing, Marie?
EDL/Rommy Tominson belongs to a set of things that is "far more complicated than people want you to believe"
As a scientist i'm not taking the bait
you don't trigger people who genuinely believe that, you shoot them
anyway, i got shit to do because i'm not a lazy teenager like you fucking lot
What the hell is going on?
What did I miss? Just Weez being a communist?
I don't know who that is, Jack
She's one of the land whales from reality chav tv
We know brexit was the right choice because Tony Blair voted remain
So we now have crazed lefties trying to bomb an ICE centre?
Best keep an eye on PureEvilPie and Jack for signs of further radicalisation
dogs shit in the street in the uk
just something about foreigners that they shit everywhere and make a mess
Brskr poos on other peoples chests
sounds like a rich neighbourhood - the last pizza i ate cost me around $1
same people who pay $5 for a mug of coffee at a faggot corporate cafe, lucienne
Yes, Jack, string them up with the gays!
You are in a place where that's not even the most degenerate of sexual shit to go on
What am I seeing there, Luci?
socjus women are not worthy of breeding
