If you want to read a nation’s priorities, look at its budget. Mr Trump’s main ambition is to cut the US corporate tax rate to 20 per cent. During Eisenhower’s time, the marginal income tax rate was above 90 per cent. That did not stop US public and private ingenuity from racing ahead of the Soviets. Today America is the world’s technological leader. With Mr Trump in the cockpit, tomorrow may look very different.

Skype Vanishes From App Stores in China, Including Apple’s
"For almost a month, Skype, the internet phone call and messaging service, has been unavailable on a number of sites where apps are downloaded in China, including Apple’s app store in the country.

'We have been notified by the Ministry of Public Security that a number of voice over internet protocol apps do not comply with local law. Therefore these apps have been removed from the app store in China,' an Apple spokeswoman said Tuesday in an emailed statement responding to questions about Skype’s disappearance from the app store. 'These apps remain available in all other markets where they do business.'

The removal led to a volley of complaints from Chinese users on internet message boards who were no longer able to pay for Skype’s services through Apple. The users said that the disruption began in late October." - Paul Mozur, New York Times

China has detained a key architect of its massive internet censorship regime
"State media outlet Xinhua reported late Nov. 21 that the Central Committee for Discipline Inspection (CCDI), China’s main corruption-busting agency, has placed former internet czar Lu Wei, under investigation. The revelation marks the fall of a once high-flying political figure who was one of the leading figures behind China’s efforts to police the internet within its borders...The reasons behind Lu’s detention remain unclear—the CCDI states only that he is being investigated for (link in Chinese) 'serious violations of discipline.' The timing also stands out—the next World Internet Conference is scheduled to take place during the first week of December." - Josh Horwitz, Quartz

Apple drops hundreds of VPN apps at Beijing’s request
"Apple has removed hundreds of apps from its download store in China this year at the government’s request, the iPhone maker said on Tuesday, as it emerged that Skype was the latest US communications service to be caught up in Beijing’s internet crackdown...Skype’s disappearance from the App Store came to light on Tuesday as Apple told two US senators that it had removed 674 VPN apps this year, at the request of the Chinese government. The company said it had “questioned the legal basis of the request” but was told that the affected VPN operators were in violation of Chinese cyber security law.The latest figure was more than twice as many VPN apps as Apple removed from its App Store in the previous year, the company said." - Tim Bradshaw, Financial Times
