The big confusion about Google and Android

Is it Google? Is it Microsoft? Is it Facebook? Or is it the EU itself what is making unfair competition?
I tell you it is the EU itself! Why could the German StarOffice not survive? EU governments preferred to use MS-Office. And with that preference they killed European competition. Why did MySQL became am Oracle product? EU governments preferred Oracle. MySQL AB could not survive and was sold to ... Sun and later to .... Oracle.
StarOffice was a German product, so all other counties in Europe did not like StarOffice. MySQL was Finish so European governments did not like it. A similar story can be told for PHP. And I could go on and on.
The whole EU is one big nest of failed states. Unable to protect European intellectual properties.
It is the EU what is making unfair competition because EU nations like each others products less than what is made in the USA.
Are there no alternatives for Android and Google Play store or iOs or Apple's App store? Yes! What is the EU doing about helping to promote an EU based alternative? NOTHING!
The European Commission is a failing government masking its failures by blaming others!

De EU en de crypto war! Overheid zie toch eens de kansen!!

  Naar aanleiding van het uitstekende artikel van Fred Hage in de Computable van  27 november 2020. Overheden worstelen met End-to-end encryptie en ‘lawful interception’. Met andere woorden privacy op internet aan de ene kant en de mogelijkheid criminaliteit te onderzoeken aan de andere kant. Het blijft me verbazen dat overheden blind zijn voor de kansen die dit dilemma biedt! Stel "ik kan bij de NL-overheid mijn encryptie regelen" (met de wetenschap dat ze mee kunnen kijken). Dan doe ik dat toch zolang ik niets te verbergen heb! Dus: Overheid wordt eens wakker en bied zelf encryptie services aan! Ga met de betrokken internet diensten zoals Google, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft .. etc. om de tafel zitten en ontwikkel encryptiediensten en standaards voor (vertrouwde) burgers waar ze gebruik van kunnen maken. De diensten kunnen dan vertrouwd verkeer van onvertrouwd verkeer onderscheiden. Ze kunnen vertrouwd verkeer direct, eventueel automatisch, onderzoeken. En meer e

The Raspberry Pi revolution.

I was ready with ChromeCast when Google stopped with Chromcast Audio. So I was looking for an alternative. For audio, I found SnapCast . The best open source solution I could find. Not perfect and not general user-friendly but manageable for me. For my TV spot I found Kodi on LibreElec apears to be the best solution for the time being to replace Chromecast. There again not as user-friendly as Apple TV or Chromecast but manageable for me. The Raspberry-Pi is need little thing and in the Flirc case it looks great. But I have two issues to be resolved before I can move on in getting out of it what I want (Running Firefox on it): Good support for Debian 64 bit Good graphical hardware acceleration When these are resolved, the Raspberry Pi will spark a revolution in the computer landscape.

Salary scale-up percentage under pressure

 In my earning norm model , I have lowered the scale-up to adapt to the crisis. What is the scale-up? The scale-up is the gross salary multiplier from the scale below. So from the bottom salary every next scale salary is multiply with the scale-up from the lower scale. This scale-up was 1.45 (thus + 45%). But this figure will come down the coming time because of the economic insecure times we are about to experience. Depending on the economic developments it probably has to be lowered in the coming months. I will follow the developments and adapt the model accordingly. Scale up It is now 1.3 (+30%)
