Media Musings Blog Archive French Taxes Indeed Apple has been criticized not only for not supporting their products but for building them in such a way as to cause them to be un upgradable while also leaving (sometimes obvious) places for upgrades in the future.
The French Government is investigating taxing Apple and android devices to fund online louis vuitton authentication the Arts and other French 'cultural activities'. Dubbed the 'culture tax' it would see some of the revenue for the sale of these technologies going to the creators of some of the material shown on them. If introduced this would bring these companies into line with TV and radio broadcasters and internet service providers. This move, however, comes on the heels of other moves by the French government in tackling big technology and media companies seeking to expand into French markets. Additionally Apple and Google have both been criticised for their deliberate policies of 'tax minimisation' by sending profits from 'expensive' countries, like Australia, the US or the UK, offshore. Several companies are now the subjects of increased government scrutiny following the revelation that companies like Starbuck, Google and Apple have paid almost no tax in the UK. Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury, in a speech last year, spoke about how although Google made an estimated $1 billion dollars from advertising revenue in Australia they paid almost no tax thanks largely to tax structures where it pays royalties or takes loans from itself overseas. In a week where the media headlines are dominated by doomsayers proclaiming the great maw of a blackhole in the budgets future it sometimes pays to understand where all the cash money comes from. Indeed, as the old saying goes, Cash rules everything around me, get the money, dollar dollar bill y'all; and in this case, this is the truth. Now while Apple and Google do not represent large bodies of the tax base they still both make large amounts of money selling expensive products and then performing disappearing acts on the money. It is behavior like this that isn't helpful and makes it a little easier to understand why countries like France might consider taxing Apple and Google, again.

Madame Duparc and her daughter, seeing the condition oakley radar lenses she was in, undertook the preparation of the day s dinner coach online factory themselves. Among the dishes which they got ready, and which oakley sports sunglasses they salted from the cellars on the dresser, were two nike air max 1 different kinds of soup one kind for themselves, made coach outlet printable coupon from fresh stock the other, for Marie and the oakley si assault gloves nurse, made from old stock. They were engaged over their oakley antix polarized cookery, when Monsieur Duparc arrived from the country; and Marie coach retailers was awakened to take the horse he had ridden to executive coach the stables, to unsaddle the animal, and to give him coach outlet folsom his feed of corn. While she was thus engaged, Madame ray ban lense replacement Duparc and her daughter remained alone in the kitchen. When oakley gascans she left the stable, it was time for her to ray ban brown sunglasses lay the cloth. She was told to put plates for coach outlet in orlando seven persons. Only six, however, sat down to dinner. Those oakley snowboard goggles six were, Madame De Beaulieu, Monsieur and Madame Duparc, the online coach factory youngest of their two sons, Madame Beauguillot (sister of Madame oakley deringer Duparc), and Monsieur Beauguillot (her son). Mademoiselle Duparc remained in shoes coach outlet the kitchen to help Marie in serving up the dinner, official coach factory store online and only took her place at table after the soup had been put on. Her elder brother, after summoning his father home, had not returned to the house. After the soup had been taken away, and while Marie was waiting at table during the eating of the second course, young Duparc complained that he felt something gritty between his teeth. His mother made precisely the same remark. Nobody else, however, agreed with them, and the subject was allowed to drop. When the second course was done with, the dessert followed, consisting of a plate of cherries. With the dessert there arrived a visitor, Monsieur Fergant, a relation of Madame Duparc s. This gentleman placed himself at table with the rest of the company. Meanwhile, the nurse and Marie were making their dinner in the kitchen off the soup which had been specially provided men coach shoes for them Marie having previously placed the dirty plates, and the empty soup tureen from the dining room, in the scullery, as usual, to be washed at the coach overnight bag proper time. While she and her companion were still engaged discounted oakleys over their soup, young Duparc and his mother suddenly burst black wayfarer ray bans into the kitchen, followed by the other persons who had fake ray ban partaken of dinner. We are all poisoned! cried Madame Duparc, ray ban sonnenbrille in the greatest terror. Good heavens! I smell burned arsenic coach outlet locator in the kitchen! Monsieur Fergant, the visitor, hearing these last words, ray ban sunglasses sale cheap politely stepped forward to echo them. Burned arsenic, beyond a oakley sales doubt, said Monsieur Fergant. When this gentleman was subsequently questioned original ray ban sunglasses on the subject, it may not be amiss to mention are coach outlet bags real that he was quite unable to say what burned arsenic ray louis vuitton 6 ring agenda pm ban sunglasses outlet store smelled like. Neither is it altogether out of place to coach poppy bags inquire how Madame Duparc happened to be so amazingly apt oakley online at discovering the smell of burned arsenic? The answer to wayfarer sunglasses ray louis vuitton jewelry briefcase ban the question does not seem easy to discover. Having settled that coach keychains they were all poisoned, and having even found out (thanks cheap oakley sunglasses china to those two intelligent amateur chemists, Madame Duparc and Monsieur spiritual life coach Fergant) the very nature of the deadly drug that had ray ban glasses women been used to destroy them, the next thing the company coach factory outlet clearance naturally thought of was the necessity of summoning medical help. ray ban outlet online Young Monsieur Beauguillot obligingly ran off (it was apparently a ray ban rb 2132 very mild case of poisoning, so far as he was ray ban aviators cheap concerned) to the apothecary s shop, and fetched, not the apprentice oakley fuel cell sunglasses this time, but the master. The master, Monsieur Thierry, arrived oakley splinter polarized in great haste, and found the dinner eaters all complaining of oakley oil drum nausea and pains in the stomach. He naturally asked what coach factory online sale 2011 they had eaten. The reply was, that they had eaten aviator sunglasses for women ray ban nothing but soup. This was, to say the least of it, oakleys cheap rather an unaccountable answer. The company had had for dinner, nike air jordan 1 retro black metallic gold besides soup, a second course of boiled meat, and ragout coach sunglasses outlet of beef, and a dessert of cherries. Why was this oakley military boots plain fact concealed? Why was the apothecary s attention to be coach store near me fixed exclusively on the soup? Was it because the tureen oakley uk was empty, and because the alleged smell of burned arsenic ray ban sunglasses sale might be accounted for on the theory that the remains coach factory coupons of the soup brought from the dining room had been thrown ray bans optical on the kitchen fire? But no remains of soup came ray ban cheap down it had been all consumed by the guests. After examining the tureen and the the coach factory store plates, and stirring up the wood ashes on the fire, and buy ray bans cheap online making no sort of discovery, Monsieur Thierry turned to Marie, online coaching and asked if she could account for what had happened. coach factory outlet store locations She simply replied that she knew nothing at all about ray ban lens it; and thereupon her mistress and the rest of the oakley scalpel polarized persons present all overwhelmed her together with a perfect torrent oakley hat of questions. The poor girl, terrified by the hubbub, worn nike dunk high tops out by a sleepless night and by the hard work ray ban sunglasses on sale and agitation of the day preceding it, burst into an discounted coach hysterical fit of tears, and was ordered out of the ray ban 4099 kitchen to lie down and recover herself. The only person coach leather purses who showed her the least pity and offered her the executive coaching slightest attention, was a servant girl like herself, who lived next coach purses sale door, and who stole up to the room in which coach coach outlet store she was weeping alone, with a cup of warm milk and water coach factory outlet location to comfort her. Meanwhile the report had spread in the town wayfarer ray ban cheap that the old man, Monsieur De Beaulieu, and the whole oakley store nyc Duparc family had been poisoned by their servant. Madame Duparc women s ray ban sunglasses did her best to give the rumor the widest possible air max 97 circulation. Entirely forgetting, as it would seem, that she was coach outlet bags online on her own showing a poisoned woman, she roamed excitably coach diaper bag all over the house with an audience of agitated female clearance oakley sunglasses friends at her heels; telling the burned arsenic story over and sale on ray ban aviators over again to every fresh detachment of visitors that arrived coach boots to hear it; and finally leading the whole troop of ray bans shop women into the room where Marie was trying to recover oakley lens herself. The poor girl was surrounded in a moment; angry air jordan retro 13 faces and shrill voices met her on every side; the coach laptop bag most insolent questions, the most extravagant louis vuitton shoes high heels red bottoms accusations, assailed her; and what are ray bans not one word that she could say in her own oakley 3d glasses defense was listened to for an instant. She had sprung ray ban 4151 up in the bed, on her knees, and was frantically oakley glasses frames entreating for permission to speak in her own defense, when red ray ban sunglasses a new personage appeared on the scene, and stilled the ray ban bifocal sunglasses clamor by his presence. This individual was a surgeon named nike free 30 H bert, a friend of Madame Duparc s, who announced that he ray ban for mens on sale had arrived to give the family the benefit of his is coach outlet online real assistance, and who proposed to commence operations by searching the nike shox vc servant s pockets without further delay. The instant Marie heard him make oakley snowboarding jackets this proposal she untied her pockets, and gave them to air jordan 9 retro Surgeon H bert with her own hands. He examined them on free nike stickers the spot. In one he found some copper money and coach outlet factory online a thimble. In the other (to use his own words, coach outlet anthem az given in evidence) he discovered various fragments of bread, sprinkled nike air jordan 16 over with some minute substance which was white and shining. sunglasses oakley He kept the fragments of bread, and left the room coach wrentham outlet immediately without saying a word. By this course of proceeding coach bags for cheap he gave Marie no chance of stating at the outset coach beiste whether she knew of the fragments of bread being in nike outlet her pocket, or whether she was totally ignorant how they coach handbags outlet came there. Setting aside, for the present, the question, whether ray ban sunglasses aviators there was really any arsenic on the crumbs at all, oakley x squared it would clearly have been showing the unfortunate maid of best price on ray ban wayfarers all work no more than common justice to have allowed nike free 40 review her the opportunity of speaking before the bread was carried ray ban sunglasses for mens away. It was now seven o clock in the evening. The next ray ban polarized sun glasses event was the arrival of another officious visitor. The new authentic coach outlet store online friend in need belonged to the legal profession he nike air jordan flight 23 was an advocate named Friley. Monsieur Friley s legal instincts led nike air max kids him straightway to a conclusion which seriously advanced the progress nike shox all black of events. Having heard the statement of Madame Duparc and oakley store her daughter, he decided that it was his duty to coach purses outlets lodge an information against Marie before the Procurator of the purple ray ban sunglasses king, at Caen. The Procurator of the king is, by this oakley juliet sunglasses time, no stranger to the reader.
He was the same air max shoes Monsieur Revel who had taken such an amazingly strong interest oakley promo codes in Marie s fortunes, and who had strongly advised her to coach clearance try her luck at Caen. Here then, surely, was a oakley fuel cell polarized friend found at last for the forlorn maid of all oakley half x work. We shall see how Monsieur Revel acted, after Friley s air jordan v information had been duly lodged.
