Hmmm.... Sounds like a good reason NOT to borrow other people's phones! ;-)

I thought the issue was people leaning close together so they all fit into the photo, and head lice jumping from person to pefson

Can't be too careful.

Indeed! Yet the article mentions sharing of head-touching objects as an alternative vector for transmission. For example, a louse carrier might hold a phone against their head; a louse might falls or climbs on to the phone in some nook or cranny; then another person might borrows the phone and pick up said louse.

It would be interesting to correlate louse transmission rates as a function of person-to-person greeting practices. Those countries that practice a-kiss-on-the-cheek would presumably have the greatest problem with lice.

But surely if you believe all the other daIly mail stories the lice would be instantly killed by the radiation leaking from these devices - unless they become like the spider whose bite created Spiderman.

Quite so! The only other shocking secret remedy is to eat chlorinated chicken with some GMO corn.

That won't be happening any time soon by the looks of it (at the 0.005% percentile;))

It sounds like Apple negotiated a contract with the Irish government which was subsequently ruled illegal under EU law. I'd think that Apple could now sue the Irish government for damages and misrepresentation -- they fraudulently lured Apple to Ireland.

Should companies be held to higher legal standards than governments?

Talk is cheap.

The next step is to take the case to CJEU in Kirschberg. After all, we're talking about European law here. It transcends both national and corporate law.

Very true!

And if two parties negotiate a contract that is later ruled illegal, who is to be held accountable? One would assume that a government that is part of the EU would be expected to understand EU law better than would a foreign company.

Maybe dig into some details about the case before we can proceed.
http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-16-2923_en.htm

It seems EU considered it to be illegal for some time
This selective tax treatment of Apple in Ireland is illegal under EU state aid rules, because it gives Apple a significant advantage over other businesses that are subject to the same national taxation rules. The Commission can order recovery of illegal state aid for a ten-year period preceding the Commission's first request for information in 2013. Ireland must now recover the unpaid taxes in Ireland from Apple for the years 2003 to 2014 of up to €13 billion, plus interest.

FYI, we're talking about a company of 3 people, one of whom is domiciled in Ireland.
