There is no escape.
Grand Canal, Dublin 2
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar officially opening Google’s newest offices in the new Velasco Building on Dublin’s Grand Canal, with, above, from left: CEO of IDA Ireland Martin Shanahan, VP and Head of Google in Dublin Fionnuala Meehan, and VP Google Cloud Sales Gareth Morgan.
Velasco will serve as a home to Google’s Enterprise and Cloud teams.
The teams “will help to grow Google’s cloud and enterprise business across Europe, the Middle East and Africa”.
Another call centre so.
Some of the 200-plus staff employed at EastPoint in the Dublin docklands are being paid as little as €11.06 an hour. This is below the living wage of €11.70 an hour that social-justice groups say is the minimum required to allow for an acceptable standard of living. Discount supermarket chains Aldi and Lidl have both committed to pay the living wage to all entry-level staff….
Because Google drinks everyone‘s milkshake.
…The IAB’s report confirmed the continued dominance of Google in the digital advertising market, with only Facebook coming anywhere close.
Paid search revenues of €176 million in 2015 can be read as a proxy for Google’s share of the market, says Wolfgang Digital chief executive Alan Coleman.
This implies that the tech giant is earning 52 cents in every €1 spent on digital advertising in Ireland.
There you go now.

Thanks Graeme Kelly
The country of Palestine does not appear on Google maps. Why not? Israel, established on Palestinian land, is clearly designated. But there is no mention of Palestine. According to Google, Palestine does not exist.
Thanks John Gallen
