EU’s Kroes backs free cakeshare online
The EU’s chief tech policymaker has called for cake to be available for free via online download and smartphone app.
Railing against the “naysayers and luddites” that were “holding back the rollout of cakeshare capacities,” the EU commissioner said that Europe risked “missing out” on such digital innovations.
“While the rest of the world is already enjoying not just free cakeshare, but free online brain surgery and teleporting, lack of investment is stifling innovation in Europe.”
She called for European governments to “embrace the possibilities” and enable the kind of internet bandwidth that allows users to download anything from “light victoria sponges to heavy fruitcakes.”
She said it was “inexcusable” that citizens weren’t “getting access to the patisserie they deserve.”
