    Default EUSSR again!!!

    EU wants one phone plug to rule them all. But we've got a better idea.

    Comment European Commissioner Margrethe Vestager has lost patience with phone makers insisting on using different connector designs for charging, and promised an impact study on the consumer pain that Lightning and USB causes.

    It's that kind of attitude that resulted in Brexit, just as well we are leaving so that EUSSR will never demand genuine British double taps to be turned into single one!

    So ECB will bail them out because they can print EURos at will.

    If they do that then EUR plummets and the next weak southern sovereign state will enter crisis as import costs spiral.

    This is called, painting yourself into a corner.

    Lower EUR rate is great for exporters like Germany.

    I just want my headphone jack back.

    Actually I've never lost it, refuse to upgrade to a phone without a headphone jack.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
