And, no, you can't add population in Central America because it is called CENTRAL and not NORTH.
Response 2: Central America is not a continent.
Hm..., where did you get that figures? From SIRI [Steve Is Really Inside] I betcha.
Response 3: Wikipedia. Your derogatory comments only serve to hasten your demise.
That's probably asia population in 2008.
Response 4: 400,000,000 people cannot be born in four years. That's nonsense.
See. if you need to correct figures please be intelligent enough to at least check your data and from what year. But, then again, I am speaking to an Isheep. I shouldn't expect too much.
Response 5: See response 3. This is the only reason I went to a numbered system, which I am ending now.
Under which definition? Their minimum monthly wage in Shanghai [the municipality with the highest wage level] is about 200 bucks a month, or about USD 2400 per year.
All right, if you want to use wages as a definition, so be it.
I guess you at least know one of the reasons why Apple racks up that much profit right? Apple uses third world's labor but charges other-wordly prices for their products.
Your implication–that others do not–is laughable.
It helps to explain the "death grip" issue…
Yes, the one that didn't exist; I understand.
Since the subsidy level for Iphone is the same as android and other devices, that is why the telcos are now looking for other more viable alternatives from other suppliers.
Yes, the telecoms, of whose smartphone sales 70% are iPhones, are certainly looking to other sources of revenue (ones that don't also bring in data fees, apparently), because the iPhone is…
Look, I don't even need to finish that sentence.
You saw how telcos profit got a big hit due to the subsidy given to iPhone.
No, I never saw that. You'll have to provide some sort of evidence for it because, as I have said, high-end Android phones cost the same as–or more than–the iPhone, and consequently they receive the same–or a greater–subsidy to keep the prices level.
You love having your beloved products;s share price going up due to profit, yet In other words, the way this level of subsidy barely works is by somewhat cross-subsidizing. So, other less prominent phone users, like Samsung's, HTC's or Nokia's, help subsidizing Iphone's users when they pay the same amount per month for the same data+voice plan. You don't realize it, and of course you don't care.
Only because you don't seem to know what you're on about.
