Apple and Samsung get 109% of mobile profits
The smacks of hyperbole. How can you have 109% of anything? It's like those who gush, "I support you one thousand percent." But, for once, it seems, the statement in the headline is correct. Apple and Samsung really do hoover up 109% of the world's mobile photo profits simply because everyone else makes a loss. It makes a mockery of market-share statistics. Sell as many as you like, but if you have only minus 9% of the profits you are in danger of becoming a busy fool.
