Yup, I didn't RTFA. Also, whoever wrote that article called it "profit" in one place and "industry share" somewhere else.
Reading more closely it appears that neither the 75% nor 30% are a share of profit though. They're the companies' the share of industry wide operating income, which has little to do with profit anyway.
Doesn't change the fact that the article states that Apple had 75% of industry profits while Samsung had 30%, which is what the OP pointed out. Also, even if it's their share of overall industry operating income, it's the same problem, 75%+30%=105%
Apple accounted for 75 percent of the smartphone industry's profits in the second quarter, but that's down from more than 90 percent a year ago due to Samsung's Galaxy device lineup, according to Canaccord Genuity. Samsung's Galaxy S7 launch and the Note 7 follow-up likely indicate that profits will continue to do well, said Cannaccord Genuity analyst T. Michael Walkley in a research note. The other item that may ding Apple's industry profit is that customers are delaying purchases ahead of the iPhone 7 launch. Add it up and Samsung has captured more than 30 percent of industry profits in the second quarter.
I understand the possible conflict of interest in working with ex-CIA, although the fact that they'd admit working for the CIA seems dangerous and sketchy, but I don't understand the Applebaum thing. Are folks against sexual harassment/misconduct, or are they against investigating harassment/misconduct?
Perfectly reasonable question since the summary really doesn't make it clear. Unfortunately you seem to have trigger someone and got modded -1 troll. Welcome to the internet.
Can't wait for them to start yapping. What mental gymnastics will they use this time?
I don't think anyone is going to be able to beat your gold medal winning mental gymnastics on this one.
Indeed. I can see how you can create these coins by participating in a DDOS, but then what can you do with it? Who is going to accept is as payment for anything?
They are a proof of work, a modern day varmint pelt. You could set up a way to exchange them for bitcoin or another virtual currency paid for by the person or persons who wanted the DDOS in the first place. The "good" news is that botnets are cheap and plentiful right now, and thus so are DDOS attacks. This scheme wouldn't be worth it since each node would be lucky to earn more than a few fractions of a cent.
for solid state drives. They are completely quiet.
All SSDs whine to some extent. The one I have in my laptop sounds like a regular HDD in a quiet room, and it definitely varies as data is written.
Yes, but really, YouTube Live truly isn't that bad as a delivery platform. As a matter of fact - it seems to be catching on relatively well EXCEPT for video game streaming. People are just used to going to Twitch for that.
Youtube Live isn't bad but they did that half-hearted game streaming launch last year (gaming.youtube.com) and it so far has been a huge flop. They just kind of threw it out there and forgot about it. Twitch needs a real competitor. Google fumbled it. Microsoft is really about the last hope for one now. God help us all.
