The United States reimposed sanctions against Iran on Monday, as presaged by President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from his predecessor Barack Obama’s nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). The Iranian government demanded immediate assistance in thwarting the sanctions from the European Union (EU), which remains nominally supportive of the JCPOA, but in practice, there seems little the Europeans can do to satisfy Tehran’s increasingly strident demands.“Our policy is based on a clear-eyed assessment of the Iranian dictatorship, its sponsorship of terrorism, and its continuing aggression in the Middle East and all around the world,” President Trump stated. The White House noted that Monday marks the final day of the 90-day “wind-down period” laid out when President Trump withdrew America from the JCPOA. Sanctions will now be restored against Iranian purchases of U.S. bank notes, trade in gold and other … [Read more...] about U.S. Sanctions Against Iran Take Effect, Iran Demands Immediate Assistance from Europe

Europe has imposed a record fine on Google. But it's probably too little, too late. The €4.34 billion ($5 billion) penalty announced Wednesday by the European Commission is the latest salvo in an extended battle between Google and regulators in Brussels, who have subjected the tech company to three antitrust investigations. The fine may be a record, but it's one that Google (GOOGL) can absorb without too much pain. And the penalty won't cause Europeans to fall out of love with Google's popular Android operating system or its ubiquitous smartphone apps. "Google can brush [the fine] off without an enormous amount of difficultly," said Richard Windsor, founder of the tech research firm Radio Free Mobile. The Commission has ordered Google to give manufacturers more freedom when deciding which apps to install on Android smartphones. But that's unlikely to mean dramatic changes in Europe, where around 80% of smartphones use the operating system. Google will have to stop … [Read more...] about Europe has fined Google $5 billion.

Angela Charlton, Associated Press Updated 8:32 am, Friday, May 11, 2018 PARIS (AP) — France urged Europeans to stand up to U.S. President Donald Trump over the Iran nuclear deal and not act as "vassals," as the region scrambles to save the 2015 accord and billions of dollars in trade. Arguing the nuclear deal wasn't tough enough on Iran, Trump's government is now re-imposing sanctions, and any companies or governments with links to the U.S. face sanctions if they do not comply. French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said Friday on Europe-1 radio that Europe should not accept that the U.S. is the "world's economic policeman." "Do we want to be vassals who obey decisions taken by the United States while clinging to the hem of their trousers?" Le Maire asked. "Or do we want to say we have our economic interests, we consider we will continue to do trade with Iran?" European governments tried for months to persuade Trump to stick with the deal but failed, and now fear it will … [Read more...] about Europe isn’t US ‘vassal,’ wants to uphold Iran nuclear deal

Apple placed itself in a pickle with the first edition of its own Maps navigational software, as Tim Cook acknowledged after the release. The software needs to be improved, and it will probably take some time until Apple Maps catches up to the players that have been in the industry for a good while now.If you don't want to wait, but also don't want to shell out the big bucks for a standalone 3rd party navigation app with all the bells and whistles, there's a number of free or very affordable alternatives that work the GPS radio inside your iPhone pretty well.Some of these use open source maps, which are getting better and better by the day and/or rely on crowdsourced information about POIs, traffic and other collectibles, and you will be surprised how good an alternative they are to the high-priced GPS apps, no to mention the integrated mapping solution.
