Americans Haven’t Been This Angry About The Economy Since March 2009

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/americans-havent-been-this-angry-about-the-economy-since-march-2009-2012-1


According to the Chicago Booth/Kellogg School Financial Trust Index (h/t WSJ’s Sudeep Reddy), only 23% of Americans trust the financial system.  And 62% are either “angry” or very “angry” about the state of the economy.

Trust in the financial system hasn’t been this low and anger in the economic situation hasn’t been this high since March 2009.  And March 2009 was when the S&P 500 hit that horrific low of 666.

“In an election year, this certainly indicates the importance of the economy to the political agenda,” wrote Paolo Sapienza.  Sapienza co-authored the index with Professor Luigi Zingales.

Then again, March 2009 turned out to be an amazing time to buy stocks.

Apple still owns tablet market, but Android narrows the gap

Source: http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/26/strategy-analytics-apple-still-owns-tablet-market-but-android/

Strategy Analytics has come out with another report on the state of today’s tablet market, which, not surprisingly, remains dominated by Apple. Cupertino’s iOS comprised about 58 percent of the global slate market during Q4 2011 — well ahead of Android’s record high 39 percent share, but down from the 68 percent it commanded during the final quarter of 2010. Android, in fact, has seen quite a jump over the past year, with total shipments reaching 105 million units during the last quarter, up from just 3.1 million last year (Apple, by comparison, shipped 15.4 million iPads during Q4, versus the 7.3 million it shipped last year). On a global level, the tablet market continues to blossom, with total shipments reaching an all-time high of 26.8 million units last quarter, representing a whopping 150 percent increase over last year. Read the full report at the source link below, or head past the break for a more succinct press release.

Facebook’s Oversized Economy Visualized

Source: http://gizmodo.com/5578544/facebooks-oversized-economy-visualized

Facebook's Oversized Economy VisualizedWhat if Facebook were a country, and all its apps and fan pages were its fiefdoms? It would look a little something like this. Oh, and it would be filthy, filthy rich.

Because Facebook’s a private company, it’s impossible to know how much the site itself makes. But the value of fan pages alone is staggering, to say nothing of app giants like Zynga and CrowdStar.
