Because the cost and level-of-effort difference between those two options isn’t comparable. Firing a function in a way that keeps it awake but uses no perceptible resources is simple and basically free.

We are really really close to homebrew on switch (which will let you do this).
Get a console 3.0.2 or lower, which currently have the full stack (TrustZone, Kernel, Userland, all of it) pwned. Libraries exist to interface with joycon input as well. We’re just waiting on public tooling.

Worth noting that Portier is sponsored in part by Mozilla. IIRC some of the people originally responsible for Persona are also involved with Portier.
propman comments on “Apple plans new U.S. campus, to pay $38B in foreign cash taxes”
They will still be taxed on foreign profits. It’s the global minimum tax of 11%. So if they are based in Ireland they’d pay 2% in Ireland and 9% to America. If in China, they’ll pay 15% in China and 0% in America.
Regardless of this, stopping the flow of capital and investment into the country with a 35% tax is extremely dumb. Everyone will say effective is far less, but it’s far less because of foreign profits and IP stashed in Ireland and effective may be 20% for tech, but marginal to bring back in the states is still 35%

You should see how we came up with our language…
Jeff_Brown comments on “Russia Is Building Its Own Internet”
Network effects are the entire value of the Internet. This will not work; nobody will buy in, and the economic cost of forcing everyone to use it will be too great.

I’ve often wished that this would happen for movies / music. When I buy a streaming movie on Amazon I’d like to be able to transfer it to Google Play or vice versa.

Oh, you said example policy. No, I do not know if they are actually different.
