There are those who ooh and awe over Google and their massive earnings, over Microsoft and Amazon et al...
Let's get real folks.
There is Apple
and then there is everyone else.

The following are the companies' TOTAL earnings (rounded) for the past (ended June) quarter:
Hewlett Packard: $25-B
Amazon: $23-B
Microsoft: $22-B
IBM: $21-B
Google: $18-B
Intel: $13-B
Oracle: $11-B
EBay: $4-B
FaceBook: $4-B

Big numbers? Yup.

BUT

The Apple iPhone, all by itself, had a revenue of $31-B.
The iPhone.
All by itself.

Note: Apple in total:  ~50-B.
Note: without the iPhone Apple would (at $19-B) still beat out Google by about a billion.

Samsung makes a decent smartphone. (To the best of my quicky research) their smartphone revenue was $5-B.
Yes, markup and perception can make a difference. Sometimes a huge difference.

I am surprised.  I didn't know this.

 

So, what do you think about ad blocking on the new Apple devices ?

Hewlett Packard?  Still hanging in there?  I'm still not an Apple person.  Mostly because their products are SO freaking expensive!!!!!

Apple is mighty humongous, isn't it?  

 

Elsewhere in this forum Bobbb referenced and reminded us how Microsoft, in its former position as a monopoly crushed various competitors including one that Eric Schmidt was the head exec.   Ho Ho.  Sweet justice huh?

 

Meanwhile these different entities are each in various niches and they do overlap and "nip" at one another.  These days I can offer best wishes to all of them, excepting google whose monopoly on minds and data and impact on websites is utterly ferocious.

Not in computers/OS. Windows is still on top with the OS.

Yes. Remember a while back the city of Munich shocked the world with their move from Windows to Linux? Read on BBC it did not work out. They are coming back.

 

I never said Microsoft. I said unnamed company. <_< -_-

Old Posts but new development: Bad news for some.

Open-source pioneer Munich has already started work to replace free software with Microsoft products
http://www.techrepub...k-to-microsoft/
 

While Munich City Council is widely expected to swap back to Windows 10 and other Microsoft software by 2021, the final decision to turn away from open source won't be taken until at least November this year .... ...However, the council has already begun work to switch to Microsoft Exchange

So much less hassle to blame a company rather than an open source community.

More on this. The Linux community also respond in this article.

 

Ditching Windows for Linux led to 'major difficulties' says open-source champion Munich

http://www.techrepub...hampion-munich/

 

No mention of any lobbying done from Redmond.

 

Oh BTW, so as to not give the wrong impression, I am a mainly a windows guy.
