During our chat, Mr. Talpeş dropped a bombshell: in Romania, programmers (and other research and development professionals) don’t pay income tax. I’m serious, and it’s not a swindle. Rather, it’s strategically clever move from the Romanian government that’s been in place since 2003. It’s designed to incentivize developers to stay home, rather than chase a bigger salary abroad. Romania, which joined the EU in 2007, is one of the poorest countries in the European Union. Thanks to EU freedom of movement rules, which allow citizens of EU countries to seek employment opportunities in any … [Read more...] about Should software developers have to pay income tax?

I remember Samsung had a 7inch tablet in the past which could also make calls, they called it tablet before, wonder what made them change their mind and call this a smartphone. The ability to make calls doesn't make a device become a phone, but the portability. posted on 08 Jul 2016, 15:49 1 14.

Lemon99 (Posts: 12; Member since: 17 Oct 2016) If Microsoft didn't bail them out, all of their revenue and capital accumulated since the mid 90s would have gone down the drain.
