Europe on social media for digital tax

GOOGL GOOG +1 more GOOGL GOOG FB

As recently as March, five of the world's top 10 valued companies were Silicon Valley behemoths: Apple, Google's Alphabet, Microsoft, Amazon and Facebook. Indeed, actual revenues from advertising are minimal in France and Germany, but at Facebook HQ Ireland they grew to 7.9 billion euros, even though the vast majority does not come from the tiny EU island-nation of a mere 2.5 million users. However, this tax would be distributed in all the countries where the company operates, and not according to the level of booked profit in each of these states, but according to the level of activity.

Head-To-Head: Apple iPhone X Vs. Google Pixel 2 XL - Page: 1

GOOGL GOOG +1 more GOOGL GOOG XL

After a bumpy launch of Google's new flagship smartphone, the Pixel 2 XL appears to be back and ready to compete again. And now that we've reviewed the Pixel 2 XL, we believe that it's true. It's close enough that the average user should be thrilled with either camera, but the Pixel 2 XL delivers slightly better colouring and zoomed-in detail. With more light captured by the sensor, better low-light shooting thanks to the added optical stabilisation on the second sensor, and improved HDR shooting, it is Apple's best smartphone camera to date - albeit just a smidge better than the 8 Plus, really.
