Samsung Galaxy S II Performs Great in its First Five Months

Written on September 26, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Samsung Galaxy S II had surpassed the record of the original Galaxy S as it obtained over 10 million on sales in just five months.

Samsung cracked another milestone on Sunday, and said that the Galaxy S II passed 10 million sales on its first five months on market. This surpasses the original Galaxy S that took seven months to hit the same amount. The largest piece of Galaxy S II sales 3.6 million, was in Samsung’s native South Korea.

Europe is almost as equal in importance and has seen 3.4 million S II units trade hands to date. Southeast Asia outside of Korea was considerably less of a factor at 2.3 million. The goals include very few of North America, as the Galaxy S II only went on sale in Canada through Bell in July and was otherwise limited to unlock full price versions until this month.

Facebook’s Revenue Doubled to $1.6 Million in First Half

Written on September 08, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

Facebook continues its quick pace of financial growth, with the social site doubling its revenues in the first half of 2011 to $1.6 billion.

As disclosed by Reuters’ sources, Facebook Inc. has doubled its revenues to $1.6 billion in 2011’s first half from only $800 million a year earlier. The social site’s net income for the period came to almost $500 million – as confirmed by a source who wished to remain unknown – since Facebook is a private company and does not have any intentions of publicizing their financial reports.

EMarketer, meanwhile, claimed that the company attained a revenue of $1.86 billion last year — leading them to speculate that Facebook might hit $4.05 billion in global revenues before the year of 2011 ends. A representative from EMarketer even noted that Reuters’ report is “on track with our estimates,” especially since the last two quarters of the year tend to collect more sales compared to the first two quarters.

Facebook’s ever-growing financial performance comes, as rumors swirled over its plans of releasing an IPO sometime in 2012. The company has undeniably reached a good standing in the secondary market this year, even though several stock market issues arrived over the summer.

Top Republicans Support Tax Subsidies Cut and Debt Ceiling Raise

Written on July 05, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

The Republicans are clearly against the tax increase, that's why they support the 'revenue raisers'.

Last Sunday, top Senate Republicans stated that they support the cut on tax subsidies in relation to a deal to lower deficit and raise the debt ceiling. Sen. John McCain and Sen. John Cornyn indicated that they are for ‘revenue raisers’ in order to avert government default, and not the tax increases. Sen. John Cornyn even said in Fox News Sunday:

“I think it’s clear that the Republicans are opposed to any tax hikes, particularly during a fragile economic recovery. Now, do we believe tax reform is necessary? I would say absolutely.”

The Republican senators’ statements end the week-and-a-half-long negotiations on debt ceiling, and welcome the deal to include cuts to corporate subsidies ordered by the Barrack Obama administration. The government instructed that a deal must be reached by July 22, so that it can be implemented by August 22.

IMAX cinema announced this week that Tron: Legacy has surpassed its $50 million mark at the box office takings. In an official statement from IMAX, Tron: Legacy made $51.4 million in global revenue.

And with the film still showing at other box offices worldwide, its takings will surely continue to increase.
