Taxes, Taxes & Taxes

We survived despair & depression, after being hurt by reality. A company is a fat cash cow for any democratic state or country, or is it ?
Well no; true we got to pay for taxes all the time, but then why care ?

A company is a way to shape your dreams and make them come to reality, with an accountant in the picture.

So far, i've learned a lot about financial mechanism, social status for the boss, how to avoid some taxes. Next we will enter the money rounds, how to found a company and find shareholders (with money).

Among the budding projects here is a listing :

  • C. is starting up a second hand branded clothes store.
  • M. & A. are brother and sister, they have the goal to set up a vehicule recycling plant with shipping to Africa.
  • P. is eager to have your dog behave, she is a dog comportementalist.
  • A. will feed the world with her restaurant.
  • A. has a plan for you to escape from your kids.
  • A. will start an arts print shop on the web.
  • M. is on the line to open up a mobile phone shop.
All of them benefit from the courses and advice from three principal teachers :
  • Patrice Zoppi :
    Accountancy & Finance, Patrice is not your usual grey suited/grey faced accountant. He is a cheerful professional with an adventurous career in the petrol industry, and many more.
  • Patrick Lagoutte :
    Marketing & Sales, Patrick has a keen interest in what makes you tick. It helps him understand what sells and how.
  • Emmanuel Hennequin :
    Business Law, a law professional with an environmental interest. He is the one depressing us with the interaction btw our private life and the company's existence.
This training is given (well not for free) by the Chambre de Commerce de la Haute-Vienne in Limoges (Chamber of Commerce) and is of a very good standard. It lasts for 7 weeks and gives a global view of the technics and challenges of creating a company in France.

Google Chrome alive and kicking

It's finally there, with a bit of excitement around 8pm french time (around 11am PTC) constantly hitting F5, so what's the deal ?

Well, it's fresh, simple, and quite quick (talking about browser speed can be a joke, it varies in 0.00006 to 0.005 sec. so how can we humans judge this, whatever).

Google Chrome is a good navigator for Joe Average. And for Sam Geek, well it's lacking the capacity to overload it with 42 tons of add-ons, which is good.

Detachable google apps to use them as self existing applications... Now we are approaching our RDA territory. Well it gives me hope for the future. We are not bound to the browser anymore.

_ V8 is there to make it tick.

_ V8? What is that, an engine ?

_ Abso-bloody-lutely, it's the Javascript interpreter that convert all the JS to
Machine code so it runs faster and more reliably.

_ Yeah, hey is that an iPhone ?

_ ... !?

Download it to try, no frisk no frills. Agreable web navigation, let see what comes by in the updates (automatic, if you read the contract, which getting quite normal in this ever beta world of ours). Click here to get Google Chrome
_ it's an other story.

A giant leap !

Google is to announce today at a conference held at Mountain View, Calif., the launch of it's well awaited Google Chrome Web Browser !!!!

What should be new ?
Well it is supposed to speed up rendering time, fixing forever memory leaks, enhancing javascript execution, making coffe and saving the world.

It is based on Webkit so it should be "rock solid" as Google says.
V8 is new also, it is the new javascript rendition engine. They built it from scratch to optimize JS code. Objects that use the same properties will share theme instead of each loading the same stuff, dynamic code generation ! In fact it turns your javascript into Machine Code that will run directly on the CPU, so it's not interpreted anymore, instead it runs directly. Best of all, V8 is used by the browser, but it's core is separated from it, so other browsers and Web Apps (Think NoBrandApps) can use it !
A new feature is the "Incognito" tab, what happens in that tab stays in that tab. No record, no cookies, no nothing. 
(update : It won't keep stuff on your side, but session logs and search history will be recorded server side) 
Speaking of "new" features, there is also an Opera like home page, with thumbnails of your favourite startup sites, as you can see in these comparison screenshots.

Ther are plentymore features, i will list them as i discover them.
