Times Windows2,648 THEODORE Team Elite Engager CircleMy   #teamelite    circles have a Chipmunks theme this time, so they are named Alvin, Simon and Theodore and of course my Elite Inner Circle.You may not have been included in my   #teamelite    circles this week. This is because I start compiling the next circles 5 days after publishing. I send a circle notification, a picture notification, and I plus mention everyone in the circle, which gives everyone three chances to know they are included. If you want to make sure you don't miss my circle posts, you should create a circle called "Notify Me", add me to it, and set notifications to "On". In any case, don't worry - you can get into next week's circles by sharing this one*     #teamelite     members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!     #eliteinnercircle     *I have had so many great     #teamelite     engagers that I need three whole circles - why are they     #teamelite     engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!My     #teamelite      circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite     is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite     you need to do the following:1. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already2. +1 this circle3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles. DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S   #teamelite   OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM   #teamelite   FOR GOOD4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if possible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).5. So I can easily find your share, always publicly share my original shared circle. You'll know if you're sharing the original one because you won't see "Jason Levy originally shared" above here. If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6. You need to share within 5 days of when the circle was published, as I publish my   #teamelite   circles weekly, and they take me a day or so to curate. Otherwise it may be two weeks before I pick up your share and you get added to the circle again. This is especially true for my   2014-12-20 14:52:58411000

Why Google should leave Europe

Spanish lawmakers did something dumb this week. They passed a new law that forces Google to pay news publishers a fee for sending valuable, monetizable content from Google News to their sites.

Lobbied by the Spanish Newspaper Publishers' Association (AEDE), the government determined that the summaries and thumbnail photos that accompany links in Google News constitute an infringement of copyright. Therefore, they argued, Google should pay the copyright holders for it.

Because Google doesn't place advertising on Google News sites, the so-called "Google Tax" would require Google to lose money for the privilege of sending valuable traffic to news sites.

So Google will do the inevitable and rational thing: It'll close Spain's version of Google News.

(The law goes into effect in January, but... more »

Comcast gives politicians V.I.P. customer service so they never find out how abusive they are to the rest of us

In an article about how former Meet the Press anchor David Gregory lost his job, The Washingtonian did some reporting about how Comcast bribes politicians and other political actors -- even Al Sharpton. As part of the piece they mentioned that Comcast has special, high-priority customer service for employees, which they extend to politicians, journalists and anyone else in a position to affect their take-over of Internet access in the United States. 

From the article: 

"Comcast also had an even more personal way of sucking up to Washington. Its government-affairs team carried around “We’ll make it right” cards stamped with “priority assistance” codes for fast-tracking help and handed them out to congressional staffers, journalists, and otherinfluential... more »

The hottest wireless technology is now sound!

In the wireless era, sound is still a great option for data transmission and other uses, and for the same reason.

Lately there's been a surge of innovations that harness sound waves to transmit data and do other creative things. Here's what's going on.

Why the BBC's Apple take-down was misleading and sensationalist

The BBC has aired a new documentary slamming Apple for working conditions. The expose, titled "Apple’s Broken Promises," appeared on the BBC's "Panorama" show last night. It claims that Indonesian mines where Apple sources the tin used in iPhones employs children in dangerous and horrible conditions, and also that iPhone factory employees in China are worked to exhaustion. The documentary is supported by video taken secretly by undercover workers sent by the BBC. 

But is Apple being blamed for working conditions in China and Indonesia generally?

Will Hollywood's cowardice in the face of hacker threats continue?

Sony has canceled the release of the Seth Rogan and James Franco comedy, "The Interview" after the GOP hacker group threatened another 911 if they were to release the movie.

New Regency has preemptively canceled a movie starring Steve Carell that was set in North Korea.

And now Paramount has pulled Team America, which was scheduled to be shown in place of the pulled Interview. (I learned this fact in the comments of this post.)

What can we do to protest the shameless cowardice of these studios? Any suggestions?

This was our second tasting at Rivino. I'm super impressed with this place. The joint is run by wine-maker Jason and his wife, Suzanne (shown here with me in the picture).

It was super crowded, and I had limited access to certain information (and so my notes are incomplete for now).

Why Google should leave Europe

Spanish lawmakers did something dumb this week. They passed a new law that forces Google to pay news publishers a fee for sending valuable, monetizable content from Google News to their sites.

Lobbied by the Spanish Newspaper Publishers' Association (AEDE), the government determined that the summaries and thumbnail photos that accompany links in Google News constitute an infringement of copyright. Therefore, they argued, Google should pay the copyright holders for it.

Because Google doesn't place advertising on Google News sites, the so-called "Google Tax" would require Google to lose money for the privilege of sending valuable traffic to news sites.

Why Google should leave Europe

Spanish lawmakers did something dumb this week. They passed a new law that forces Google to pay news publishers a fee for sending valuable, monetizable content from Google News to their sites.

Lobbied by the Spanish Newspaper Publishers' Association (AEDE), the government determined that the summaries and thumbnail photos that accompany links in Google News constitute an infringement of copyright. Therefore, they argued, Google should pay the copyright holders for it.

Because Google doesn't place advertising on Google News sites, the so-called "Google Tax" would require Google to lose money for the privilege of sending valuable traffic to news sites.

So Google will do the inevitable and rational thing: It'll close Spain's version of Google News.

(The law goes into effect in January, but Google will close the news site on Tuesday.)

After Google's announcement, the AEDE freaked out and called for the government to stop Google News from being closed, saying: "AEDE requires the intervention of Spanish and community authorities, and competition authorities, to effectively protect the rights of citizens and companies."

Note that they're not requesting a removal of the law; they're asking the government to force Google News to stay open and also pay the Google Tax.

The Spanish episode is part of a larger trend among regulators and politicians in Europe to strongly reduce the influence of U.S. Internet companies in general -- and to damage Google in particular.

Google needs to leave Europe just like they left China, and for the same reason:
