Samsung Electronics Flags 58.1% Jump In Q3 Operating Profit

Samsung Electronics flagged a nearly 60 percent rise in third-quarter operating profits Thursday, largely driven by strong smartphone sales boosted by US sanctions against its rival Huawei.

The South Korean tech giant said in an earnings estimate that it expected operating profit to be 12.3 trillion won ($10.6 billion) for July to September, up from 7.8 trillion won in the same period last year.

The prediction was in line with analyst forecasts.

Samsung was projected to post around 10.3 trillion won ($8.9 billion) in third-quarter operating profit, according to market researcher FnGuide.

Samsung Electronics is crucial to South Korea’s economic health. It is the flagship subsidiary of the giant Samsung group, by far the largest of the family-controlled conglomerates known as chaebols that dominate business in the world’s 12th-largest economy.

Its overall turnover is equivalent to a fifth of the country’s gross domestic product.

Analysts say the firm’s strong third-quarter

Operating Rooms Turn to Zoom-Like Technology for the Age of Covid

(Bloomberg) — Operating rooms tend to be busy places, often bustling with not just the surgeon, but also a phalanx of aides, students, technical advisers and, yes, medical device sales reps. That’s not exactly an ideal environment for social distancing.

About a decade ago, Co-Managing Director Suneeta Reddy and her three sisters took over most executive functions at India's largest hospital chain from their father. They embarked on a multi-year building spree in a bet that India's economic growth would spread from its metropolises to second-tier cities, where patients are getting richer. Now, almost 20 billion rupees ($280 million) and four years of construction later, there are signs that strategy is about to pay off.

London transport regulator strips Ola’s operating licence over public safety failings

By Rebekah Mathew

(Reuters) – London’s public transport authority stripped Indian ride-hailing company Ola of its London operating licence, saying that the taxi app was not “fit and proper” to hold one, having put passenger safety at risk.

Bengaluru-based Ola entered the London taxi market in February this year. The market is dominated by rivals including Uber <UBER.N>, Freenow and Bolt, and traditional black cab drivers who previously blocked streets in protest at what they see as a threat to their livelihoods.

Transport for London (TfL) said in a statement that it refused to grant Ola, a Softbank-backed <9984.T> operator, a new London private hire vehicle (PHV) operator’s licence as it “cannot find it fit and proper to hold one after discovering a number of failures that could have risked public safety.”

TfL’s decision came days after Uber won a legal bid to restore its London operating licence, which was

Uber can continue operating in London after winning court appeal

Uber has won the right to continue operating in London. The ride-hailing company was contesting a decision made by Transport for London (TfL) in November last year. The regulator believed that Uber wasn’t “fit and proper” and had shown “a pattern of failures” since entering the city in May 2012. Uber disagreed with the assessment, though, and filed an appeal last December. A four-day hearing, which began on September 14th, has led to today’s decision by deputy chief magistrate Tanweer Ikram. “Despite their historical failings, I find them, now, to be a fit and proper person to hold a London PHV [private hire vehicle] operator’s licence,” he concluded.

Uber is now free to negotiate with TfL on the length of its new licence, which could last months or years. “This decision is a recognition of Uber’s commitment to safety and we will continue to work constructively with TfL,” Jamie Heywood,

Source Code For Multiple Windows Operating Systems Publicly Leaks

Microsoft has had to contend with quite a number of major leaks over the last few years, including everything from parts of the Windows 10 source code in 2017 to a Bing app server that recently leaked multiple terabytes of GPS data and user searches for more than week. On top of all that, it appears that a ~43GB archive of Microsoft source code, including the Windows XP (with Service Pack 1) and Windows Server 2003 operating systems, has reportedly leaked, along with a array of older OSes, including a few versions of Windows CE and MS-DOS.

Both Windows XP SP1 and Windows Server 2003 have been EOL for quite some time now. Current estimates put Windows XP’s market share at about 1.26% (and falling). Windows Server 2003’s share among connected servers is even lower and is estimated to be approximately .57% as of today. The
