In April 25th, Lei Jun sent an email to his employees. Commitment in the internal letter: the overall net interest rate of the overall hardware business of millet will never exceed 5%. A few days ago, the millet board of directors approved a resolution: from now on, millet has officially promised users that the overall net interest rate for hardware, including mobile phones and IoT and consumer products, is not more than 5% per year. If we exceed, we will return over 5% of the parts to the users in a reasonable way. Lei Jun said that the reason for such a choice is because millet is essentially a mobile phone, intelligent hardware and IoT platform as the core of Internet Co. Because, we always firmly believe, compared to the pursuit of one-time hardware sales profit, the pursuit of product experience more promising; compared to the channel layer after price, real material pricing is more popular. The 5% red line not only includes mobile phones, but also mobile power, air purifiers and other hardware products. More importantly, the Lei Jun believes that millet adhered to this model has been tested, especially millet can be reversed after the decline in sales volume, such a reversal is more proof of the correctness and advancement of the millet model. 4, Tianjin bitcoin miners stealing electricity was seized by the police 600 confiscated mine The city police confiscated 600 computers for bitcoin mining after the local Power Grid Corp reported abnormal use of electricity in Tianjin, according to the British media. The Xinhua news agency quoted the local police as saying that 8 high-powered fans were also seized. It is the largest electricity theft case in recent years. Miners use large power computers to acquire a lot of computing power to create encrypted currencies, and the production of such currencies is achieved by solving mathematical formulas. Such behaviour is also very electricity consuming, so the miners need to find locations where cheap electricity can be obtained. At present, Tianjin police detained 1 people and investigated another 5 people. 5, the Ministry of industry and Commerce: to ensure that the cancellation of traffic roaming fees will be cashed in July 1st.

The Ministry also said China will speed up the breakthrough of core technology. China is backward in chip design and related talent recruitment, and welcomes foreign enterprises to invest in Chinas second national integrated circuit industry fund. China is seeking billions of dollars to boost its ambition in the field of local chips to reduce its dependence on imports, and has invited overseas investors to help them achieve this goal. Chinas move in the field of chips has always been the focus of American politicians, as Chinese companies have plenty of money to challenge Qualcomm and other American chip giants, and China is the key market for these companies. The Chinese government says its supportive investment policy is aimed at reducing Chinas dependence on foreign semiconductors, one of the most valuable imports in China. [international news 1. Facebooks net profit in the first quarter was US $4 billion 988 million, up 63% over the same period last year. Facebook released its first quarter 2018 results for March 31st. Facebook reported a total revenue of $11 billion 966 million in the first quarter, up 49% from $8 billion 32 million in the same period last year. Net profit was 4 billion 988 million US dollars, up 63% from 3 billion 64 million US dollars in the same period last year. Although Facebook is in a predicament of internal and external troubles, its revenue and profits in the first quarter exceeded analysts expectations. Thanks to this good news, Facebooks stock price has gained a significant growth on Wednesday. Facebook shares rose 7.41 dollars in after hours trading, to $167.10 a share, or 4.64%. Facebook now has more than 90% advertising revenue from mobile business. Facebooks daily active users in North America rose to 185 million in the last quarter, a sign that the companys news push algorithms and data privacy issues may not frighten consumers. 2, the global Q1 smart phone shipments continue to decline, the average price increased by 21% Global smartphone sales were 347 million in the first quarter of 2018, with a 2% decline in demand in the first quarter of 2018, but the average sales price increased by 21% in the first quarter of 2018, according to the latest data from the German research firm GfK. This is contrary to media forecasts. Consumers are not inclined to save money. Apples high price iPhone8 and iPhoneX remain hot. The slowdown in smartphone demand has always been considered a major problem for apple, but GfK points out that, although sales in the whole industry have fallen from last year, consumers are inclined to choose more expensive models because they accept the latest innovations offered by smartphones. GfK found that, although the demand for new machine sales growth decreased, the average sales price of smartphones increased by 21% to $374 over the same period last year, as high-end models are more popular. This has led to a 18% increase in smartphone revenues worldwide, which is somewhat abnormal for a mature industry. The significant increase in the average sales price of mobile phones is only related to apple. Other mobile phone manufacturers using Android or other platforms have fallen into low - end competition, and the average sales price of Android phones has declined in the past 10 years, from about $450 to about $200. ? 3, apple CEO meets with us president to avoid a trade war with China. After taking part in the White House banquet that welcomes the president of France, Apple CEO Tim Cook (TimCook) will meet with the president of the United States Donald Trump (DonaldTrump) to prevent a trade war against China. It is reported that the closed door meeting will be held this afternoon and will not be open to the media. Over the past month, the Trump administration has taken punitive measures against foreign trade partners, especially China, to rebalance bad trading and unequal trading in trade relations. At first, raising the tariffs on aluminum caused Apples potential concern, because most of its products used this material. But analysts believe that the impact on Apple may be limited. Nevertheless, the threat of Apples wider chain of production chains still exists. Cook said Apple is trying to get in touch with China and the US government by maintaining dialogue to promote change rather than stand idly by. In addition to selling products in Chinas growing market, apple relies almost entirely on Chinese workers to assemble their hardware and accessories. Therefore, despite the Chinese governments request for a review of its application, apple continues to cooperate with the Chinese government. If Sino US trade relations continue to deteriorate, Apples material and labor needs will be greatly affected. Taking into account the size of apple and its relationship with China and the US, trade war may cause apple to become a target and seriously damaged. 4, the US think tank warned that AI could trigger a nuclear war in 2040. RANDCorporation, a think-tank in the US, issued a recent study warning that artificial intelligence (AI) could trigger a nuclear war in 2040. According to the report, AI may undermine the stability of geopolitics and eliminate the status of nuclear weapons as a deterrent. The researchers warn that the world has maintained peace for decades, because countries know that any nuclear attack may cause irreparable damage, but AI and machine learning determine the possibility of military action, which means that the situation of peace and stability will collapse. Researchers say AI may encourage people to make catastrophic decisions in the future. For example, improvements in sensor technology may lead to the destruction of retaliatory forces such as submarines and missiles. In addition, AI may also induce countries to launch pre emptive strikes against other countries to gain advantage, even if they do not intend to launch attacks. Many experts worry that increasing reliance on AI will lead to new catastrophic errors. Therefore, maintaining strategic stability in the next few decades can be extremely difficult. All nuclear powers must participate in actions that help to limit nuclear risk. The report also highlights the danger of using AI to make military decisions, rather than the threat of UAVs and other so-called killer robots. 5, Qualcomm second quarter revenue of $5 billion 261 million, an increase of 5% over the same period The US chip giant Qualcomm released its second quarter financial report for the 2018 fiscal year ended March 25th. According to the report, Qualcomms second quarter revenue was US $5 billion 261 million (analysts expect us $5 billion 190 million), up 5% from 5 billion 16 million US dollars in the same period last year. According to the US general accounting standards (GAAP), net profit was $363 million, compared with net profit of US $749 million in the same period last year, down 52% from the same period last year. But Qualcomms quarterly earnings and revenue exceeded analysts expectations. The companys share price was up nearly 2% after the news was announced. Mergers and acquisitions may have dominated high Qualcomm over the past few months, but investors and analysts believe that smartphone chip sales are still one of the most important indicators of Qualcomm, especially in the process of developing the global technology industry to 5G. With the development of Sino US relations, Qualcomm has always been under pressure, while resisting hostile takeover efforts from rival Broadcom. In order to reduce the cost of $1 billion, Qualcomm plans to lay off 1500 people. 6, AMD first quarter revenue rose 40%: grab Intel share after an increase of 10%AMD quarterly earnings, revenue reached $1 billion 650 million, a 40% increase over the same period last year, its chip business is taking up the market share of Intel.
