Google, Apple, Microsoft, and Intel are the world's corporate giants. Why is it so hard for you to believe that they're doing so well and are progressing forward with technology? All of them have huge deals with every major retail PC manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc.) racking in some sick cash with how much of a necessity computers are in this age.
Gates said that 640K of memory is all that anybody with a computer would ever need. You're insisting that we're "stuck" and can't move forward to even smaller chips?
Oh I absolutely believe that google apple microsoft and intel are doing well. Some of it is made up and some of it laundered money. But they are definitely supported. Probably have money laundered to them to prop them up until they achieve monopoly status and then pay it back. Though I doubt microsoft is in the club any more.
And there's really no need to get angry with me. I didn't make up a fraudulant channel and then go screw exchequers out of taxes and stuff because it was fraudulant sales that never happened.
But if you want to believe that the emerging markets are growing like this be my guest. I'm sure people are snatching them up in ghost malls all over china to take home to their ghost town and live in their modern ghost apartment.
Record sales in a consumer retrenched market. It's a miracle. HaliLOLya.
But don't worry this is all for the poor. The poor are going to get their butt kicked into wealth and privelage you just watch.
"The court has yet to fix trial dates for the case. Mr Goel is a celebrated businessman with humble beginnings. In 1995, he left India for Singapore and started out as a sales coordinator at a computer parts distributor at Sim Lim Square. In 2000, he formed eSys and in less than five years, he built up a US$2-billion IT products distributor with offices in over 30 countries. His work also took on a social enterprise dimension, as he started selling low-cost computers aimed at the underprivileged."
US 2 billion dollar channel from dust in 5 years. It's a miracle holilolya.Edited by Hephasteus - 1/14/11 at 6:05pm
