According to a new report, Apple’s profits have now soared to become an astonishing two-thirds of the entire mobile phone market. This observation comes from Asymco’s Horace Dediu after gathering data from the latest quarterly earnings reports from all the major mobile phone vendors.
From earlier today, we already know that Apple blew past Nokia to be the number one smartphone manufacturer, according to Strategy Analytics. Holding an 18.5 percent market share, Apple is followed by Samsung with a 17.5 percent share and then Nokia with 15.2 percent. But that’s looking at unit shipments, wait till you take a look at profit comparisons.
From what Dediu has gathered, the latest quarter saw a decline overall in the profits of the mobile phone sector, with four of the major vendors—Nokia, Motorola, Sony-Ericsson, and LG—all reporting losses. Of the other vendors that did see gains, Apple chomped 66.3 percent of the pie, followed by Samsung with 15 percent, RIM with 11 percent, and HTC at 7.4 percent.
LIMEWIRE agreed earlier this year to settle copyright claims by the major record labels (NET NEWS 5/12), paying $105 million. However, PAID CONTENT reports, “the thousands of smaller independent record labels — whose music was, of course, also traded on LIMEWIRE — are saying they’re owed an amount at least equal to that.”
The indie labels have now filed a lawsuit in NEW YORK federal court, in which they say they had earlier reached an agreement with LIMEWIRE, and therefore did not participate in the suit settled with the major labels. That agreement said that if and when LIMEWIRE reached a settlement with the major labels, it would offer the indies the same “material terms” as that settlement.
Via NYPost – By ZACH CRIZER and JENNIFER FERMINO – Bronx straphangers should slip on a pair of gloves.
Subway stations in the city’s northernmost borough are the grimiest and most rank in the entire city — placing them dead last in terms of cleanliness, graffiti and litter, according to a new MTA report.
After pestering top brass about the filth, MTA board member Charles Moerdler said the dirt and decay are so dire that some Bronx stations should be torn down.
“We have the worst stations in the entire system,” fumed Moerdler, who lives in Riverdale, at yesterday’s transit committee meeting.
“I used to be a buildings commissioner, and if I still was buildings commissioner, I would condemn them!” he said.
MTA inspectors found that the borough’s subway stations only passed muster a mere 78.5 percent of the time in June, according to the figures released yesterday.
That score calculates the percentage of time MTA officials rated the subway stations to be clean, citing litter, graffiti and overall tidiness.
“In the morning, the rats greet me at the end of the platform at 149th Street,” said Rosa Cruz, 42, a college administrator who works in The Bronx. (more…)
