  • [Top Story]The official pronunciation of the Porsche Taycan is worse than we thought12/19 15:00

    With the introduction of the original Roadster, and the Model S a few years later, Tesla emphatically demonstrated that electric cars could be exceedingly sleek as opposed to clunky boxes you wouldn't want to be caught dead in. Flash forward to 2018 and a number of luxury automakers are embracing the EV revolution. With that said, the upcoming Porsche Taycan -- formerly known as the Mission E -- is arguably the most exciting EV release on the horizon. Originally unveiled back in late 2015, the Porsche Taycan has truly impressive specs that one would expect to see from Porsche. Sporting a 0-62 MPH time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed in excess of 155 MPH, the Taycan will also boast an impressive range of 310 miles on a single charge. Even better, Porsche recently said that the Taycan will be able to charge up to 250 miles of range in under 20 minutes when it finally hits the road in 2020. Oh, and there's one more thing, apparently we've all been pronouncing the Taycan name wrong for months. Since unveiling the Taycan name this past June, it's widely been pronounced as "Tay-Can." Well, apparently we've all been wrong. In a sign that perhaps Porsche erred when choosing the name, the automaker this week put out a video advising the public on how to correctly pronounce its upcoming EV. As it turns out, it's pronounced Tie-Con. Will we get used to the name? Most likely. But again, it's not a good sign when a major company like Porsche has to roll out a video to inform the masses how to properly pronounce one of its most highly anticipated cars in recent memory. As to the meaning behind the name, Porsche notes that "Taycan can be roughly translated as 'lively young horse; because it embodies power and strength." As a final point of interest, a Porsche executive this year said that all Porsche vehicles may be fully electric by 2030.......Search More News

  • [World News]Hungary protests spark opposition coalition - but will it last?12/19 14:21

    Passage of two laws last week backed by the prime minister's Fidesz party angered a variety of domestic voter groups, galvanizing the weak and divided opposition to act with a unity rarely seen in his eight years in power. The protests in Budapest raised the question of whether such fledgling cooperation can last long enough to put down roots and offer viable opposition to a charismatic politician normally adept at side-lining dissent. While no substantial shift in Hungary's domestic balance of power appears on the cards for now, there is a sense among some Hungarians that Orban overplayed his hand by pushing through the two laws that drew such a concerted opposition response.......Search More News

  • [Business]Blow for Bitcoin investors as HMRC rules they cannot class transactions as gambling12/19 14:00

    Bitcoin investors in the UK have been dealt a blow, after HMRC ruled that they would not be allowed to classify their investment in the cryptocurrency as "gambling", winnings from which are tax-free. In a long-awaited policy paper, released on Wednesday, HMRC clarified that it did "not consider the buying and selling of cryptoassets to be the same as gambling".  It said that digital currencies counted as "chargeable assets" for capital gains tax if they were both capable of being owned, and had a value that could be realised. "In the vast majority of cases, individuals hold cryptoassets as a personal investment, usually for capital appreciation in its value or to make particular purchases. They will be liable to pay capital gains tax when they dispose of their cryptoassets," it added. The latest paper comes almost four years after HMRC last issued official guidance on how to classify cryptocurrencies, at which point it had suggested that transactions could be "so highly speculative" that winnings from such activity may not be taxed. Technology intelligence - newsletter promo - RHS However, it had suggested it was planning to update its official guidance on the subject earlier this year, saying that where "an asset (including Bitcoin) is held as an investment – as opposed to being working capital in a trading activity – the presumption is that any profit or gain on its disposal will be charged to capital gains tax".  Experts had been warning that the "gambling" loophole, which appeared to allow cryptocurrency investors to reduce their gains to zero, could potentially lead to millions in lost revenue for HMRC. Cryptocurrency investment calculator The tax experts had urged the department to make its policy on cryptocurrencies clearer, saying it was likely to confuse amateur investors who had piled into the market in late 2017, when Bitcoin prices were hitting $20,000. One barrister specialising in tax Etienne Wong said HMRC had not been clear-cut on whether investors could legitimately be classified as "gamblers". Bitcoin has been falling steadily since the start of 2018, but recent weeks have seen it plunge in price, some days by more than a fifth. It currently stands at around $4,000.......Search More News
