Samsung Mobile CEO received $5.8-million salary last 2013

April 5, 2014

Steve Jobs only received $1 salary annually. The former Apple CEO was only one of the elite group of CEOs who receive such salary. We also know Mark Zuckerberg received such small amount. But that’s for them who don’t need more money. For some executives though, they still need millions. Tim Cook, the current CEO of Apple, received $4.25 million last year. That’s higher than his previous year salary of $4.17 million. Read more

iPhone-5-1

Android may be King and Samsung may be No. 1 but you can’t neglect the fact that the Apple iPhone is revolutionary. Millions of iPhones are being sold and in China, as reported by China Mobile, about 1.3 million 4G iPhones have been sold since the first month of the year 2014. From January to March, in just one quarter, more than a million iPhones have landed in China. (Well, that last statement was kind of untrue since the iPhone is actually made in China.) Read more

BlackBerry lays off 120 employees

March 20, 2014

I’d like to think BlackBerry is still doing okay but recent reports and even rumors are not doing the smartphone pioneer any good. CEO John Chen may be doing his best but looks like it’s not enough to get BlackBerry out of its rut. To make things worse, about 120 employees are about to lose their jobs with the company this week. What a sad scenario: pink slips being given away at the Waterloo office. Read more

htc one 2014

The All New HTC One or the M8 is becoming a recent favourite, what with all the leaks and information being shared. Full specs have already been exposed though but we have yet to see the smartphone on March 25. I’m guessing the leaks won’t stop just yet until the official announcement. But some impatient dude managed to be selling a boxed HTC M8 on eBay. No idea how he or she got a Verizon-branded HTC M8 but the smartphone is now listed at $499.99, up from the starting price of $199. Read more

tsmc logo

Last month, we learned that TSMC would deliver A8 chips to Apple and not Samsung. The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company previously confirmed that production of the 20nm chip will be delayed, no thanks to a “specification issue”. Whatever that means, at least, we know that TSMC and Apple’s partnership will bring us the next-generation iPhone. Read more
