LONDON (Reuters) - Europe’s new data privacy law has put a small army of tech firms that track people online in jeopardy and is strengthening the hand of giants such as Google and Facebook in the $200 billion global digital advertising industry. FILE PHOTO: A Facebook like button is pictured at the Facebook's France headquarters in Paris, France, November 27, 2017. REUTERS/Benoit Tessier/File Photo The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR here) brought in by the European Union in May is designed to protect personal information in the age of the internet and requires websites to seek consent to use personal data, among other measures.

Not too long ago, dual-SIM smartphones were a rare breed. On top of that, the few models that existed were unexciting, bland in design, and had just enough processing power to not be mistaken for a potato. Demand picked up, however, which explains why today's smartphone market offers a much broader selection of dual-SIM handsets – from cheap, entry-level phones to top-tier brands' flagships. Alas, dual-SIM phones come with their downsides. One is that they often employ the so-called hybrid SIM card trays – trays where the secondary SIM card slot doubles as a microSD card slot, but can't accommodate the two card types simultaneously.

The dual-SIM Samsung Galaxy S7, for instance, is designed this way.We can't blame manufacturers for adopting hybrid SIM card trays in their devices, as doing so leaves room for other … [Read more...] about Rare breeds: Dual SIM phones with separate microSD card slot (no hybrid SIM tray)
Apple has been doing it for a while now with its iPhone editions, but recently most major phone manufacturers outed or will have flagship models without microSD card slots.In the slideshow below we have listed some major handsets that force you to make do without more memory than their makers supplied internally, and upon making it we realized that this is getting epidemic now.That is why we wanted to ask if you approve this obvious trend, and to what extent the good ol' memory card can be swapped for the newly-minted cloud storage services most major smartphone manufacturers are now trying to make us stomach. Is it all an evil plot to make us sign up for cloud storage and tied up even further in the respective mobile ecosystem, so that we never leave, or is it just for cost-cutting/space saving reasons? Fill in our poll below and sound off your arguments in the comment section.
