I think people are being cautious right now. They want to know how the election is going to go. They know if Obama wins, things will go in the toilet. If Conservatives win, things will get better but at what speed? If Obama is run out of office, then it will be time for people to come together and make this country into what it once was. It’s up to the people, not government.
Possibly, but that has nothing to do with this article. All of the companies mentioned have lost revenue to other companies. It’s not an across the board drop in tech sales. For example: Sony and Sharp, giant Japanese manufacturers have fallen to Korean Samsung, which also took down Nokia in a completely different market.
Yet, government is working daily to flip that paradigm 180 degrees. Let's hope they haven't completed their work by November.
In the world of gaming, it seems Angry Birds and the flock of tablet/hp games have taken far more than a nibble out of the "gaming community".
In dollars and cents terms this is catastrophic, as the revenue is incomparable.
As for Nokia, Acer et al... the writing was on the wall years ago. The idea of "changing" phones, home computers like we change underwear is a thing of the past.
The "Technological Age", which has been with us since the 80's, may be one of the most short lived eras known to man.
Economically, with so many eggs in one basket so to speak, the "Angry Birds" may turn into something far more sinister.
And we're not talking Hitchcock.
