A malware strain known as Loapi will damage phones if users don't remove it from their devices. Left to its own means, this modular threat will download a Monero cryptocurrency miner that will overheat and overwork the phone's components, which will make the battery bulge, deform the phone's cover, or even worse.

'Surplus profit' tax returns on property transactions in Greece next year

A resumption of a previously unproductive tax on "surplus profit" from the sale of all types of real estate in still bailout-dependent Greece will again come online in 2018. The tax on the amount between the purchase and sale price, if such arises, returns on Jan. 1, 2018 and will affect a dramatically slumped property market in Greece, sans very few exceptions in well-known holiday destinations.

Gov’t back to drawing board on 2018 ENFIA

Next year’s Single Property Tax (ENFIA) is evolving into a major problem for the government, as by May it will have to present Parliament with a bill including the new rates, as well as to decide which owners will bear the brunt of the load for 2018.

The adjustment of “objective values” (the property rates used for tax purposes), which must be completed within the first quarter of 2018, is forcing the government back to the drawing board for the ENFIA, as the agreement with its creditors provides for bringing objective values to market prices. This will lead to an increase in the taxable values in low-income neighborhoods and a decline in expensive areas such as the capital’s Voula, Ekali and Psychico.

The Amazon vs. Google Feud, Explained (and How It Affects You)

If you haven’t noticed, we don’t live in an ideal world.

This week, Google announced YouTube will stop working on Amazon’s Fire TV devices come January. Google also purposely broke YouTube on the Echo Show, for the second time this year.

If you read a lot of tech news, you saw this coming. Most people don’t, so here’s a quick explainer of why these two technology giants can’t get along, and what it means for users.

Great news.  Thanks to Jerry and Maaike, too.  Suppose you didn't try the pool - which was probably empty!
