Load balancing: Laschet’s breach of taboo

Dhe extension of the partial lockdown beyond the New Year (if it is up to the Chancellery until March) has an obvious response: All of this may be appropriate, but actually it cannot go on like this.

Italian antitrust authority fines Apple for misleading claims

The Italian Competition Authority has fined Apple 10 million euros (approximately C $ 15 million) for misleading iPhone water resistance claims.
