 They may know a lot more than you think. But people care a lot more about what affects them personally than what is going on in the rest of the world. Their arthritis is more important to them than thousands of people dying in Syria. I don't give a hoot whether some guy in China gets his iPhone 6. I care about my iPhone 6. Does that make me ignorant of corporate finances or global economics? Not this retired CEO. Rather, it is reality: the things that command my attention...
They are caught up, eh? Time to introduce the iPhone 6S.
This watch has "FAIL" written all over it. Expensive, doesn't do much of anything more than an iPhone (which you have to have with it to use many of the features), not waterproof, and now advertising. If you paid me enough, I might take one and keep it in a drawer long enough to be of interest to a museum.
Again, 'losses' are representative of net income rather than total economic activity. Using your measure, both the United States and North Korea have smaller economies than any profitable corporation since they both have expanding debt.
Total wages paid to all workers is included in a country's GDP. But his point is taken. I certainly won't believe anything you write. http://www.investopedia.com/ask/answers/199.asp
GDP is not the same as "net income." A closer correlation would be gross income. You have proved my point, actually. But here is a reference. I doubt that mere facts will persuade you, but others might find it interesting. http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2014/12/19/sony-really-is-larger-than-the-economy-of-north-korea/
Unfortunately, it is an affectation common in some circles to say that that the US is responsible for every ill that has befallen mankind since the dawn of time. People who suffer from this mental affliction cannot be reasoned with. They assume that they are intellectually superior to everyone else and therefore no one else knows anything.
This thread is proof that the Internet will not end ignorance. Instead, it just spreads conspiracy theories faster.   The fact is that North Korea's GDP is about the same as Sony's income. But North Korea's "workers' paradise" requires 30 million slaves to produce their GDP, while Sony does it with only 140,000 employees. Admit it or not, Sony has some very bright people working there, some who are quite capable of taking North Korea's internet system down permanently....
If an object will not fall faster on the heavy side, then Apple's shifting weight mechanism wouldn't work, would it? And Spaceship 1 and badminton birdies won't fall nose first. Maybe someone needs to go back to their high school physics book and realize that we don't use iPhones in a vacuum.
Uh, they could achieve the same thing by weighting the side they want it to land on. No motor, no computers, etc. Perhaps next they could try a little parachute that deploys whenever the phone is dropped.I remember this, too.
