eBay's festive sales soar, but what's this? Profit DOWN 62%?

All that money so little profit

So on revenue of 13 billion they made 757 million? that's about 5.8% profit

Their a web auction hosting company, how could they only make 5.8% profit? or is this some tax avoidance again

Planning is not doing

Always found it funny how you could be arrested and jailed for planning an act.

I always believed that you where innocent until proven guilty, so with out actually committing an illegal act what is there to be guilty of.

Just to prove my point on how stupid this is - "I have created plans to take over the world but I'm not ready or cannt be bothered to intact said plans yet"

I guess I'm now a national threat to every country in the world. Just to let you know my plan heavily relies on stolen alien technology and Kittens.

Bong my phone to sync, WHY?

Explain how this is an improvement on Bluetooth syncing?

I sync my phone to my car radio. When I get in my car, should I get a call it turns off the radio and I answer the phone with a button on the steering wheel. Completely seamless after the first time, where I had to sync my phone.

Walk into my conservatory and on to the media player on my phone, press play and my music doc plays music from the speakers. completely wireless and I can do this from about 5m away not 5mm away.

Here's a free tip, Cisco: DON'T buy NetApp unless you're crazy

I think so I am?

WTF!

"That aside, Cisco needs major acquisitions to kickstart its annual growth which has been languishing at eight per cent for two years"

So whats so bad about growing around 4% a year? their a massive multinational company.

Just because x company grows 1200% doesn't mean its comparable to 4% growth from another company.

that 4% could be $500million in revenue.

where 1200% could be $5000

Its this never ending hunt to grow 10-20% each year even when the market is saturated that it causing the economy to crash.

Netflix wins first-show TV rights to Disney flicks

I think so I am?
Facepalm

Thats a lot of £

£5.99 * 30 million = about £179million a month in revenue

So for this deal they are spending about 8.3% of their Yearly revenue.

"Corps for media distribution really need to stop this exclusive deal crap"

At the min its Netflix or Lovefilm, Ill paying for one, but if its on the other service they should know I'm downloaded it.

If they just made their media available on all services there is greater chance people would pay for it. This business model of exclusive deals is already broken.

It always boils down to short term gain or future longevity?

xj-a245 casio owner

I bought one of the casio laser hybrids about a year ago. For the money the thing is fantastic!!!

Got well over 1500hrs on it and use it every day from watching the TV and Love film to Xbox and Powerpoint.

Best thing is full auto focus and x2 zoom - Have a 100" Screen from a little over 9ft.

Also has 5 year full manufacture warranty.

How to spot a terrible tech boss within SECONDS

I think so I am?
Meh

Is it only a British thing

In the UK there seems to be a Pay wall at around £45-50k where tech people don't get payed any more money.

The only way to get passed this pay wall is to become a consultant working for yourself or become a manager?

Always confused me why Managers get payed more than people who can and do add more value to the company.

Why cant a manager earn 20-30% less than the tech'ys below him?

That's why you have a little document that informs them that they will now accept all risk for the potential damage of their exception.

Making someone sign their name on the dotted line for liability is a fantastic enlightening tool, you soon find they piss off back to their little cubical .
