Hey EU, how about going after Apple, too?

It happened to Microsoft, now it's happening with Google, and Apple clearly fits the same bill too!

The European Commission had solid antitrust reasons for fining Google €4.3-billion for violations including the bundling of certain apps with the Android operating system — and for not going after Apple for similar behaviour. Yet, from a consumer’s point of view, Apple should get the same kind of attention.

The most important infraction by Google in the EU ruling is the “illegal tying” of its search and browser apps to the Android operating system. The search giant, the ruling said, made Android phone manufacturers pre-install its search and browser applications if they wanted to provide access to the Google Play store, where almost all Android users get their apps. That, according to the European Commission, reduced the ability of other search providers and browser developers to compete because pre-installation creates a “status-quo bias”: users are too lazy to research alternatives to apps that are already on their new phones.

Half of young people recover from schizophrenia: prospects are not as hopeless as previously thought, according to Norwegian research.

"These symptoms create a lot of anxiety and create a huge emotional strain. How well you do as a person often has a lot to do with how you’re treated as a person. Societal prejudices still add a significant additional burden."

1 Street - 100 metres - 10 minutes - 17 images

Sometimes when it seems like there's nothing to photograph, I'll stand in one spot and take as many different photos as I can without moving from that spot. That's a bit difficult to do when I'm walking Billy so instead I took as many photos as I could find in a very short 100 metre long street in Sydney during a recent visit. These were about a quarter of the photos I found in that 10 minutes.

How to hear (and delete) every conversation your Google Home has recorded

Quite true that often what is seen in the activity list as "snooping" is an unintentional "query" triggered by a false positive - in other words, where Google Home thinks you said the trigger words "Hey Google" but was, in fact, some other random words in conversation.

But the instructions below show you how to see what is recorded as queries, and how to clear them.

Schizophrenia is likely a side effect of our Brain’s Complex Evolution.

"Some scientists suggest that the creation of human language came with a price, the entrance of autism and schizophrenia into the human genome. Jumbled speech is one telltale symptom, another indicator, while other disorders are shared with other species, only humans’ experience it."
