Apple becomes First In Yearly Profit Per Employee (420,000$)

So the big news which blew away all the records of Apple Inc. Was About that Yearly profit per employee.Apple is far ahead of many big companies, including Google, Microsoft, Intel, Cisco, Yahoo, Oracle, IBM, Amazon, HP, and Dell, as chosen by Pingdom.
The inevitable conclusion based regarding Yearly Profit Per Employee was concluded by analytics firm Pingdom, sourced from Yahoo finance data.The survey analysed the profit per employee metric for several tech companies like Google, Intel, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard and others.
Below is the analysis of Yearly Profit Per Employee for year 2011 vs 2008

So Google were the leading company according to Yearly Profit Per Employee but Apple beat them up and lead the market share surprisingly.Apple crossed $151,063 profit per employee in 2008 to $419,528 per employee in the past 1 year only.So it pushed Apple to first place, taking the leadership away from Google.

In 2008, Google was leading this list, but now Apple has surpassed it by quite some margin. This isn’t because it’s not going well for Google, but rather because it’s going spectacular for Apple.
thats so true because Apple’s profit per employee is 1.25 times that of Google’s and 1.71 times that of Microsoft’s, which is now in third place.

So all these yearly profit per employee definitely depends on the number of employee any company is acquired of. Apple has 46,600 employees versus 89,000 for Microsoft and 26,316 for Google.See below

Yahoo has exactly the same number of employees now as in 2008, while Microsoft actually shrunk its operation by 2,000 employees. Meanwhile, HP’s and IBM’s profit per employee isn’t very high likely because of the significant overhead required to run such large companies.
It’s also worth taking a look at total employee numbers. Apple has added more than twice as many new employees as Google in the past couple of years, but still managed to pass the search giant.

Apple is, of course, the most profitable handset vendor of the three. The Cupertino team has managed to capture a whooping 55 percent of total profits and one fifth of total revenues during the first quarter based on shipments of just five percent of all of the handsets that had been sold during the quarter.

Does IPad 2 Sucks ??

So here comes the question ...... does iPad 2 Sucks ??? or do you love it more than any thing on this planet ????

Well answer varies as per users own interest and the way users like to use these Post-PC's Devices.first take a look at latest device playbook by RIM's features.

Blackberry released their first Tablet earliest after apple released its Ipad 2. Their tablet is called Playbook. its faster slim and capable of multi core processors, its gaming plateform is not so impressive but analyst are saying its still competing with Apple Ipad.Ohh Well i forgot to mention that Black berry playbook has dual cameras. rear camera is capable of 1080p recording and its front facing camera is 5Megapixel, its smoth and sharp. also its sound recording is way smoother than ipad.

Ipad 2 Is no doubt the revolutionary devices ever produced by APPLE inc. or may i say By APPLE CEO STEVE JOBS ?. Well after analyzing it one may say that it is Good only or someone may say that "Ohh MAn i am Addicted to it , iTs sooo AWESOMEE :-) " Yeah Some peoples are crazy about apple products.

There are many companies who can compete Apple in his regard. Like some of them are worth mentioning Like BLACKBERRY And MOTOROLA.

Now we shall see whats ipad 2 has to offer its costumers and does it really sucks ???

So Ipad 2 has 1GHz dual-core Apple A5 custom-designed, high-performance, low-power system-on-a-chip with dual cameras, back camera has video recording, HD (720p) up to 30 fps with audio; still camera with 5x digital zoom. Front camera supports video recording, VGA up to 30 frames per second with audio; VGA-quality still camera.But when its shot over low light condition and after watching its quality on computer, this has been understood that apple was totally failed while making camera in ipad2 and it has to be improved in its forth-coming generation of ipad.(yes Ipad's Camera SUCKS). Recently FLICKR said that iPad 2 Camera Has Only 23 Active Daily Users and its worst statistics ever regaring Apple's Devices.

Ipad has.up to 10 hours of surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video, or listening to music. it supports two version one with 3G data plan and other with Wifi only.Its + point because other tablets has only 6 hours of battery life at max.

The main advantage which Ipad 2 has over all the other tablets is Apple has Over 65,000 apps which is specifically built for ipad Only.They’re available from the App Store in virtually every category. And more are added every day. While Motorola Zoom had only 100 apps on its launch day.(which sucks)
Its also have a seperate store for Books aka let you start with the bookshelf to buy and read your books. With a tap, it flips around to reveal the iBookstore, where you’ll find over 200,000 books and counting, many of them free.

Multitasking on supported by most of latest devices but it sucks very bad on ipad 2. every time you have to access it , first you have to double tap the home button then it only shows the name of the icon which are currently opened. (THATS SUCKS). Whereas Latest devices like Motorola Zoom and Blackberry Playbook shows you the glance at the current state of the application in which it was leaved.

No Flash is annoying. On something that's supposed to be closer to a netbook or laptop? It will leave huge, gaping holes in websites. I hope you don't care about streaming video! God knows not many casual internet users do. Oh wait, nevermind, they all do. (thats SUCKS BIG TIME BECAUSE OTHER LATEST DEVICES DO SUPPORT FULL FLASH SUPPORT)

So All in ALL Did all these mentioned HOLEs are important to you or not is totally depend on your personal requirements.Some prefers Motorola zoom Because of its flash , some may like playbook because its portable and some maylike Apple Ipad Maybe because its Gaming capabilities are awesome.

The thing which is important is that How Apple Is going to Change its 3rd Generation Ipadin order to compete with market. Time will surely answer this question.

Apple Rumors regarding IPhone 5

According to very recent rumors. it is noticed that apple is willing to alter the camera system of Iphone 5. Some picture evidences shows that apple has relocated the flash position to extreme right side of iphone. i think its very different to implement this because most of smartphone in this Era doesn't have this Configuration of flash.

Also There were rumors spreading that Iphone 5 will get 8 or 12 Megapixel Camera which probably be supporting 1080P video recording But suddenly in recent event of Sonny, Howard Stringer who is the CEo of Sony, accedently said that Apple new upcoming iphone series mayhave 8Mp camera and he also said that We are working with apple on this. So their is a solid chances that Iphone 5 or 4S may get an improved 8Mp Camera with atleast 720p video recording.

Analyst are also suggesting that the New iphone 5 will officially be known by Iphone 4S. It will support the new apple Chip i.e A5 chip which is currently being implemented in Ipad 2, it has faster Processor and Graphics which looks more sharper and crisp. Also there is a rumors around hat Apple will bring support for Sprint and T-Mobile support.

iPhone’s design will remain the same except for “minor” cosmetic changes .Some experts are saying that it will surely get improved for Antenna Issue that most of the Iphone 4 costumers were facing by graping it in a certain way makes it to loses pretty much strength of signal which causes for call drops too.

Well i'm keeping my fingers cross and we will hope that As usual Apple Wont disappoint us As they know how to satisfy their customers and their needs.
