In rapid onslaught, Chinese phone makers take control of 50 percent of Indian market

Champions of yesteryear Samsung and India's Micromax are reeling and may have to come up with something otherworldly in order to stage a comeback.

U are sharing good knowledge but hope not with office internet and office productivity time.

Ultimately water will find its own level. If u are making product costing u 2k and selling for 50K with la la land stories of American enterpreunership and brand image and German makes same product for 1.5K and sells for 15K with Selfie stories and then I jump in and sell the same product with same features for 4k 5k 6k 7k with no gimmicks then intelligent customer will do the needful. Only suckers go for 0% EMI and buy this 50 k phones.

Yesterday I was in mall with babe and went inside Lacoste showroom and my balls (which were already dry) shot right up my gills. One T shirt costing minimum 5050 and same with full sleeve Shirt 5050 bux. There was 50% discount on it. But still costing 2500 no? Nothing special about them no gold lining or silver zari or platinum buttons. Same as any other T shirt in shoppers stop or FBB or anywhere. When i asked salesman who buys, he looked at my babe and says guys buy to impress their GFs and that too with Credit card.

Can u believe it? 100 bux cotton t shirt sold for 5050? This is why in another thread somebody posted 1% people own 75% wealth because suckers are born every minute.

Laptops are being deliberately slowed down. Is this a conspiracy or what? Just kidding. The piece is dated from early January.

SLOWDOWNS ON DECK?

Incoming patches are expected to prevent attackers from exploiting the chips' design flaw, but have prompted concern that chip performance will be degraded as a result.

That could result in the slowing down of home and work computers, as well as cloud services that host popular sites and services.

Intel's statement said that "any performance impacts are workload-dependent, and, for the average computer user, should not be significant and will be mitigated over time."

Gruss told ZDNet that general browsing and low processor-intensive work are less likely to be affected by any slow downs.

"We have observed many workloads that are not affected much," he said. "Generally, a large number of context switches is bad for performance when KAISER is applied," referring to KAISER, a kernel isolation technique, which Gruss wrote a paper about last year.

"For instance doing a lot of accesses to small files, you might have slow downs of 50 percent or more," he confirmed.

The patches released by Microsoft for fixing Meltdown and Spectre are causing slowdowns.

Quote:

In a Tuesday update, for example, Microsoft said that consumer devices with processors from 2015 or earlier running Windows 7, 8, and 10 would be more likely to exhibit slowdowns. The company added that, "Windows Server on any silicon, especially in any IO-intensive application, shows a more significant performance impact when you enable the mitigations."

This means that millions of Windows PCs and servers around the world, even those that are just a few of years old, could get noticeably more sluggish—as much as 20 percent slower in some cases. Intel also published benchmark and user data on Wednesday, which similarly shows deeper losses for older generations of silicon.
