How much a day cost Amazon CEO?

You are worried about your failures and losses? You must be, despite the fact whats the cost of your failure? How much you did loss? Nothing to worry about because your total value is just 0.0001 % of the loss of Amazon in one day. That’s ridiculous and painful.

Plunging global markets lopped $US99 billion ($140 billion)  from the fortunes of the world’s 500 wealthiest people, the year’s second-steepest one-day drop for the Bloomberg Billionaires Index

PROBABLY THE BIGGEST BLOW EVER

Amazon.Com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos lost $US9.1 billion ($12.9 billion), the most of anyone on the index, as shares of the online retailer fell the most in more than two years. The plunge lowered Bezos’s net worth to $US145.2 billion, its lowest since July.

It was part of a horrific plunge on the Nasdaq index, which suffered its worst day in two years, the index finishing over 4 per cent lower.

Apple gave up 4.6 per cent to $US216.36 and Microsoft dropped 5.4 per cent to $US106.16. Amazon skidded 6.2 per cent to $US1,755.25 and Alphabet, Google’s parent company, gave up 4.6 per cent to $US1,092.16.

Amazon has soared 50 per cent this year but has fallen 14 per cent from its all-time high in early September.

Apple new models, how they are distinct mutually in specifications

As the matter of fact, new models of Apple are just revealed in the market and People are really in deep tension and confusion that what Apple has for them however They have a common though floating in their mind that the difference is just in the claims perhaps its not a case. We have elaborated detail features for our viewers to carefully realise the products specifications.

This article, iPhone XS vs. iPhone XS Max vs. iPhone XR:

Lets see What’s the difference?

Apple’s new iPhones aren’t one and the same.

The iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR are now fully revealed by Apple, and all of those announcements flew by fast. With the iPhone X now out of the Apple Store, your iPhone X choices for the next year boil down to one of these phones (though you could still get the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, or the iPhone 7).

All three new iPhones for 2018 share most of the same core features, but it pays to know how they’re different, and not just their price. (See chart below for pricing and specs.)

At Apple’s event today in Cupertino, California, the company revealed its newest lineup of iPhones, which include the iPhone X, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

The iPhone XS (pronounced “10-S”, not “excess”) features a 6.5-inch OLED HDR display, a faster and more efficient A12 Bionic chip and improved photos and video technology. Pre-orders start Friday and the phone goes on sale Sept. 21.

The iPhone comes in three different colors: gold, grey and black.

The iPhone XS has two 12-megapixel cameras on the back.

Screen size and display: 5.8, 6.1, 6.5 inches

The iPhone XS has the smallest physical footprint of the three, while the iPhone XS Max has an absolutely enormous screen, with 6.5-inches of real estate to gaze upon. The iPhone XR uses the LCD screens of Apple’s past, and lacks the pressure-sensing 3D Touch feature that debuted on the iPhone 6S. Instead, it uses haptic feedback like a trackpad when you long-press an icon on the display.

• iPhone XR: 6.1-inch LCD display, Liquid Retina Display pixel density of 326ppi

• iPhone XS: 5.8-inch OLED display, Super Retina pixel density of 458ppi

• iPhone XS Max: 6.5-inch OLED display, Super Retina pixel density of 458ppi

Materials

• iPhone XR: Aluminum body with glass front and back

• iPhone XS: Stainless steel body with glass back and front

• iPhone XS Max: Stainless steel body with glass back and front

Colors

Camera features

All three new iPhones have at least one 12-megapixel rear camera (with OIS) and a 7-megapixel front-facing camera that supports Face ID unlocking and Animojis. While the iPhone XR lacks a second rear camera, it uses software to take artistic portrait-style shots with background blur (called Bokeh).

Smart HDR is a new feature that applies to the trio, automatically detecting and fixing red-eye, calling out highlights and deepening shadows. Enhanced portrait selfie software also comes to all three new phones.

• iPhone XR: 12-megapixel camera (f1.8), 5X digital zoom, three portrait lighting effects

• iPhone XS: Dual 12-megapixel camera (f 1.8 wide-angle and f2.4 telephoto), 10x digital zoom, five portrait lighting effects

• iPhone XS Max: Dual 12-megapixel camera (f 1.8 wide-angle and f2.4 telephoto), 10x digital zoom, five portrait lighting effects

Battery life

Apple never shares specific battery capacity (usually measured in milliampere hours, or mAh), but does give guidance on how much longer than other devices it expects these phones to last. The iPhone XR could potentially have the longest battery life of the three, though we won’t know for sure until after we test all three phones.

• iPhone XR: Apple claims it will run 90 minutes longer than the iPhone 8 Plus, the longest-lasting iPhone of 2017

• iPhone XS: Apple claims it will run 30 minutes longer than the iPhone X

• iPhone XS Max: Apple claims it will run 90 minutes longer than the iPhone X

Online store stock value touched $1 trillion and now close to Apple

Amazon is now not only synonymous with online shopping, but is also opening physical stores, owns the Whole Foods grocery franchise and runs a massively lucrative cloud-services business

Most advance warehouse in the World , Amazon takes the lead claiming advance warehouse in UK

According to a recent NPR/Marist poll, 92 percent of America’s online shoppers have bought something on Amazon. More than 40 percent said they buy something on Amazon once a month or more often. In fact, when people shop online, they’re most likely to start on Amazon, the poll found.

Amazon has said that more than 100 million people around the world pay for its Prime subscription.

By early afternoon on Tuesday, Amazon’s stock was trading at $2,030 per share, up less than 1 percent, putting its market cap at $990 billion

Amazon’s stock value briefly topped $1 trillion on Tuesday, a little over a month after Apple crossed the same milestone.

The tech and retail behemoth, founded as an online bookstore by CEO Jeff Bezos in 1994, has been consistently profitable only since 2015. In fact, Amazon profits have averaged $2 billion in each of the first two quarters of this year.

Turkey to shun US electronics including I-Phone (7.1 m users in Turkey) punitive amid rising trade tensions

Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan announced today that the country would boycott all electronics from the United States after President Donald Trump slapped new tariffs on the region that caused the Turkish currency (the lira) to hit an all-time low.

The announcement, which specifically targeted Apple, comes amid rising trade tensions between the two countries (and leaders), but it will barely touch the tech giant.

“If they have iPhone, there is Samsung on the other side. We have Vestel Venuüs in our country,” Erdogan said, referencing a Turkey-based smartphone manufacturer during the announcement to members of his national conservative Justice and Development Party.

“Together with our people, we will stand decisively against the dollar, forex prices, inflation and interest rates. We will protect our economic independence by being tight-knit together.”

The problem with Erdogan’s new strategy is that it will have a much greater effect on the Turkish people than any U.S. company. In other words, Turkey relies on Apple more than Apple relies on Turkey.

Only 2.08 percent of Turkish smartphone users owned a Vestel last December, while 17.41 percent owned Apple iPhones.

That means of the 41.09 million projected smartphone users in Turkey last year, 7.15 million of them used Apple, which is only 1.02 percent of the conservative estimate of more than 700 million iPhone users in the world.

 

Putting that into context, that means there are more than 8.5 times more iPhone users worldwide than there are people in Turkey.

The U.S. and China comprise Apple’s two biggest markets, so this would be a much bigger deal — for both Apple and America — if this electronics ban came from China. Of course, the U.S. is also feuding with over trade, so it’s not outside the realm of possibility.

Apple’s this quarter revenue beats all anticipations explicitly flagship product remained impressive

Apple Inc. delivered its best-ever revenue for the June quarter, typically its weakest period, as demand for high-price iPhones remained resilient and services like app-store sales swelled to all-time highs.

The results for Apple’s fiscal third quarter show how the world’s most valuable company is finding ways to grow amid a contracting global smartphone market that is roiling its rivals.

“Growth was strong all around the world,” Apple finance chief Luca Maestri said during an interview.

Though iPhone sales usually weaken in the spring and summer as anticipation builds for new devices expected in September, Mr. Maestri said demand has remained consistent, particularly for the iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus. “Customers are really valuing the features in the products,” he said. Shares of Apple, up 28% over the past year, rose 2.6% to $195.30 in after-hours trading.

Apple’s move to raise iPhone prices continued to pay off in the period with sales of its flagship product rising 14.4% to $29.91 billion even as shipments rose less than 1% to 41.3 million. Meanwhile, the company’s services business reported record revenue of $9.55 billion, a 31% increase from a year ago, strengthening the case that Apple is in the midst of a transformation from a device-driven business into one increasingly reliant on sales of subscriptions and software.

The combination drove total revenue up 17% to $53.27 billion in the latest period, above Wall Street expectations and near the high end of its own guidance. Profit rose 32% to $11.52 billion, or $2.34 a share, also above analysts’ consensus estimates.

Apple signaled it expects to sustain strong iPhone sales in the current quarter with a forecast for total revenue of between $60 billion and $62 billion, which would represent a healthy 14% to 18% increase from a year ago. The expected jump reflects a small boost from a trio of new devices the company is expected to release in September, analysts say, including an update to the $999 iPhone X, its first oversize phone with an organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, display and a 6.1” LCD phone with facial recognition technology.

The new phones are projected to be priced between $699 for the LCD device and $1,099 for the plus-size handset, according to UBS, potentially ensuring another year of higher average iPhone prices to lift Apple’s total revenue.

Analysts had estimated the $999 iPhone X made up one-quarter of total iPhones sold, which helped lift average selling prices per iPhone by nearly 20% to about $724.

China steering close to US in World’s listing of Top tech giants in 2018

The world’s 20 largest tech companies now exclusively

IT industry is overall progressed drastically in regards of innovation and technology in last five years. More than 1.5 millions entrepreneurs globally have registered themselves and have shown keen interest in adding value in the industry. However it has been observed that Silicon valley has declining trend of inviting overseas in IT firms in last few months explicitly from Asia the low economic region, reason of such trend is cost cut.

On the other hand Large companies can be located all over the globe.

For example, massive auto companies can be found practically anywhere on a map. Ford (USA), Toyota (Japan), Volkswagen (Germany), Hyundai (South Korea), Volvo (Sweden), Tata Motors (India), and Magna (Canada) are just some of the biggest companies involved in the production of vehicles or parts.

While the banking, pharma, energy, and retail industries also have geographic spread as well, the same cannot be said for the rapidly-growing tech industry.

The clash of tech titans

The most recent edition of Mary Meeker’s famous Internet Trends 2018 report highlighted the top internet companies in the world by valuation, with an interesting and perhaps unintended outcome.

Of the 20 largest tech giants globally, a total of zero are located outside of the United States and China.

Here are the latest rankings of internet companies, using updated market caps for all public companies:

*In Meeker’s chart, she kept eBay-Paypal together as one entity. We’ve separated them based on the 2015 spinoff.

**Xiaomi’s valuation has been in question ahead of its July 9 IPO in Hong Kong, and we’ve used the most recent valuation estimate of $54 billion here.

In total, the above list of companies is worth $5.9 trillion, with a 75%-25% split in terms of USA/China.

It’s also worth noting that the list excludes Samsung, likely because the South Korean company is quite diversified in its manufacturing activities (TVs, refrigerators, air conditioners, batteries, microwave ovens, etc.).

A steep dropoff

Aside from the USA-China duality, the other major noticeable aspect of the list of the world’s largest tech giants is that it clearly shows a divide between top-tier companies and those further down the ladder. In fact, there is not a single company with a valuation between $200 billion and $450 billion.

The top seven companies on the list account for 81% of the total value of the list, and they are all above the $450B mark. These include behemoths like Apple, Alphabet, Amazon and Microsoft, but also two big Chinese companies as well (Tencent, Alibaba).

Meanwhile, the bottom 14 companies muster up just 19% of the value – a fact that underlines how hard it is to vault a tech company into the upper echelon of the market.

Only company claims, its global facilities are now 100-percent run by renewable energy:Go green

The move is in line with the company’s 2015 plan to push toward 100-percent renewable energy, a list that includes all of Apple’s data centers as of 2014. As of today, the company’s officially adding retail stores, offices and co-located facilities to that list, covering 43 countries, including the US, China, UK and India.

The addition of nine manufacturing partners, meanwhile, brings the total number up to 23 suppliers promising to produce their products entirely with clean energy. How the companies involved actually hit these numbers is, unsurprisingly, somewhat more complex.

“Where feasible, we produce our own renewable energy by building our own renewable energy facilities, including solar arrays, wind farms, biogas fuel cells, and micro-hydro generation systems,” the company writes in its 2017 Environmental Responsibility Report. “Where it’s not feasible to build our own generation, we sign long-term renewable energy purchase contracts, supporting new, local projects that meet our robust renewable energy sourcing principles.”

The push toward renewable energy has included some creative solutions, including 300 solar rooftops in Japan and 800 in Singapore. The company says it’s currently running 25 renewable energy projects globally, with 15 more in the process of being built. That will bump green energy capability from 626 megawatts to 1.4 gigawatts, by its count — and the finally tally doesn’t appear to include carbon offsets, unlike some of the competition. 

It’s easy to see how a rollback of the Clean Power Plan could ultimately have an adverse effect on the company’s bottom line.

“We’re committed to leaving the world better than we found it. After years of hard work we’re proud to have reached this significant milestone,” Tim Cook said in a release tied to the news. “We’re going to keep pushing the boundaries of what is possible with the materials in our products, the way we recycle them, our facilities and our work with suppliers to establish new creative and forward-looking sources of renewable energy because we know the future depends on it.”
