The financial reports for Samsung's Q3 2016 sales are out and they show that the Note 7 has burned Samsung in the same way as the company expected it to. The total revenue of the company has plummeted by 3.87 trillion WON/$3.4 billion and landed at 47.82 trillion WON/$42.01 billion; that's a 7.5% decrease, as compared to Q3 2015. Operating profit stands at 5.20 trillion WON/$4.56 billion, which is the lowest for the Korean tech giant in the last two years and shows a 30% decrease.


Things as a whole don't look nearly as bad as it looks in the company's mobile department. Consider this; Samsung Mobiles has managed a total revenue of 22.54 trillion WON/$19.80 billion, which depicts a 96% decrease, as compared to the third quarter of the last year! The profits in the division stand at a meagre 100 billion WON/$87.8 million.


According to reports, things will start to look a little brighter for the company in the last quarter of the year, as it plans to focus on increasing production and sales of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in the worldwide market. In the meanwhile, the Galaxy A and Galaxy J series of smartphones will hopefully provide some stability in terms of sales to the company in their respective price segments.

There is a way to get 1TB Google Drive storage for 2 years without paying a dime. And that path starts with reviewing Google Maps. One reddit user has reported in the r/Android subreddit that he was offered 1TB Google Drive storage after becoming rank 4 Google Map Local Guide. To become a rank 4 Local Guide you need to acquire 200 or more points by reviewing places, uploading images, rectifying wrong information, resolving queries posed by users in your area and adding new locations.


If this offer entices you, don't think that you can spam your way to gain ranks as a Local Guide. The tendency to help out people with thoughtful and genuine reviews must come naturally to you. You will enjoy this process, if you are someone who would generally post a Yelp review after visiting a place. Google actually filters out low quality and inappropriate reviews to deliver maximum value to their users and keep the ecosystem clean. In a nutshell - authentic reviews should get you to rank 4 along with free storage that's worth more than $200.


Do check out Google's official website if you are really interested in becoming a Local Guide and learning the added benefits.

Steve jobs iphone

 

Exactly 8 years ago on January 10th, 2007... Apple's CEO Steve Jobs took the stage before the public at the Macworld Conference & Expo in Moscone West in San Francisco, California and unvield the first-generation iPhone.

 

After quickly walking through Apple's position on the market and updating the attendees about everything Cupertino-related, Jobs transfixingly said his signature "one more thing" mantra and teased the public that he'll be treating them to not one, but three new devices a "widescreen iPod with touch controls", a "revolutionary mobile phone", and a "breakthrough Internet communicator".

 

Of course, this was one device. The one and only Apple iPhone. It was not flawless, but it surely set in motion the wheels of the smartphone industry and led to its nowadays' state.
