Oracle buying TikTok would work as well as the time NewsCorp bought MySpace.  Maybe even better.

"Almost," subby? ALMOST?!?

So uh, with this precedent being set, what's now stopping every nation on the planet from demanding that US businesses sell themselves in order to give their own preferred businesses and local government more control of security and content?

You mean, what China already does?

For fark's sake, it's just Vine with extra steps. How hasn't farkerburg or some other asshole in the sphere cloned the shiat out of it already? This is really dumb, like all of it.

My first thought was "AOL/Time Warner all over again".

Apparently, Trump worked with subby on the headline.

We ought to be, but so far the "let China do whatever they want" strategy hasn't accomplished much. What tangible, actionable consequences against China do you propose?

I'd start with policy that doesn't validate the practice.

Just to be clear, are you opposed to the practice or for it? Because it sounds like you're opposed, but have decided that China won so we have to conduct ourselves like they do.

Mr. Trump said Oracle would have control over TikTok, adding, "If we find that they don't have total control, then we're not going to approve the deal."

People clamored for a President With Business ExperienceTM and this is what they got: someone who didn't understand the deal as it was progressing or at the time he verbally signed off on it.

I don't have to like current policy to recognize doing nothing puts us at an even greater disadvantage. China is able to freely operate in our local and digital economies, while we are blatantly prohibited from participating in theirs.

Who is it that validates that behaviour, but the person who suggests we should do nothing in response?

That would be you. You've completely capitulated to the point that you've settled on being a piece of shiat in response to them being pieces of shiat.

Right. Expecting China to face consequences for their bad faith actions means I'm capitulating. Consult a dictionary, friend.

You've completely ceded and are comfortable with them setting the agenda. You do things their way now.

Naturally, if I don't like how China behaves the only way to show it is to let them do whatever they want with no repercussions. I get it now.

So whats so special about this app that it couldn't be replicated by another company? They could even make it better, with blackjack and hookers.
