Honesty is not something Sneak instinctively expects from the IT industry's assorted PR departments so it was extremely refreshing to hear an unvarnished response during a recent call to a leading global telco, to find out its stance on the EU's investigation into taxing emails and text messages. "We tend not to comment on legislation when it is at the proposal stage," said the corporate mouthpiece. "Because what will happen is that the EU will spend two years looking at it and then come to the same conclusion as everyone else: that it’s a f***ing stupid idea."
Sneak can only imagine how much simpler the world would be if this represented the company's official line.
