It seems from these data that android lost share at AT&T and Verizon but made up for the loss on the smaller carriers. RIM though has cratered. And isn't windows8 doing well?
The Brazilian market is totally corrupted by high import tariffs. Nobody can afford an iPhone 5. So they accept crappy old Symbian instead.
Looks like a disney version of Skylander. What could go wrong?
I love how people like to use GDP statistics to try and prove their point (which boils down to we don't need those filthy miners, as the economy is really built on public school teachers, public relations firms, solar panel installers and lattes). Fact is, if it wasn't for the mining boom, the Australian economy would look very european. And the only point of the european economies seems to be to make the american one look not as bad as it really is.
if a company wasn't making money prior to 2008 there would have been a real problem....Good ol' Cliffy was just ridin' the wave, and fooling his CEO. Four years later reality has bitten. Same in Australia, Starbucks has closed almost all its stores. And so it should, it makes crap coffee anyway.
A fair amount of tax to pay is as little as possible. In the words of Australia's richest man in the eighties and nineties (he has passed on, now) at a government inquiryThe only people that rail on about a 'fair' amount of tax are the ones that have plans to use Other People's Money (OPM) for stuff that they give a higher priority for than the majority of the population. It is most certainly not money they earned themselves.In this particular case, Australian governments...
In Australia, Telstra offers an iPad for $48/month with 1GB of data zero dollars up front. $68/month gets you 8GB/month It works out a bit dearer than outright purchase upfront then paying for a twelve month lump of data prepaid ($629 iPad 4 with cellular plus $180*2 for 24GB data over two years = $989) but if a person had trouble with ponying up the cost of an iPad outright it isn't too bad as total cost over two years is $1152. edit: my bad, the Ipad with cellular is...
I highly recommend roo meat, or Skippy if you prefer. Lean and tasty. The best version I ever had was a meal called the "coat of arms". It was long strips of roo and emu woven into a mat then grilled before being served in a burgundy gravy on a bed of beans and mashed potato. Mmmmmm.Roos are in plague proportions after three good wet seasons, so the more people eat the better.
Err, just to clarify for other people64GB iPhone 5 in the Australian Apple store is AUD$999 incl 10% GST.Excluding GST that would be 999/11*10= roughly AUD$908.Convert from USD$849 @ today's exchange rate (about 1.03) gets you AUD$824So, divide 908/824 and find the AUD price is 9% higher than the USD price of $849So there is mostly a currency hedge plus additional costs that have to be amortised, like regulatory approvals etc. bear in mind that the AUD historically has...
I read Odo as being sarcastic...
