Facebook would have doubled its turnover

If everyone seeks to know the results of Facebook, the figures obtained by Reuters tend to show that the social network continues to grow rapidly.


If Facebook has not yet entered in the stock market, and is therefore not required to disclose its financial results for the moment, the mystery is however pierced from time to time by the observers looking at any price to get an idea of the economic performance of the first global social network.

Thus, according to information gleaned by the European agency Reuters, turnover of Facebook would be of the order of $ 1.6 billion in the first half of 2011, on which a net profit of $ 500 million would have cleared. And according to Reuters, this would represent an increase of 100% of the CA on a year over the first half of 2010 in which Facebook revenues were approximately $ 800 million.

Digits rather realistic when they are confronted with those revealed year last by Bloomberg, which ended on an annual turnover of about 2 billion dollars for Facebook in 2010. A figure which, this year, would have therefore been almost reached in a single semester. Facebook, currently valued at height of $ 80 billion, should be introduced on the stock market in the year 2010.

Demarrage Windows 7 Vs Windows 8 (2)

"With Windows 7, it had achieved a lot of improvements on startup, as for example by launching the drivers at the same time that programs, but it is true that we could go further to improve things still" recognizes Gabe Aul, an engineer who work on the prcédure of startup. With Windows 8 and the "Fast Start-Up", Microsoft will still improve certain things. We learn and the session of the core system (the kernel therefore) is not completely closed to the decision, but will be placed in a sort of deep sleep from which it can exit more quickly at the lighting of the machine. Imagine that the information will be stored somewhere on the hard drive or SSD for a quasi-instantané restart of the kernel, the system has more then to load the drivers and user sessions.

Demarrage Windows 7 Vs Windows 8

According to Microsoft, this new system allows to keep the benefits of sleep, while bypassing its disadvantages, a part of the system not starting cold. Tests conducted on 30 computers to different configurations show that startup time gains range between 30 and 70%. And in the case where users would completely extinguish their computer Windows 8, a type of closure "in the Windows 7" will be also proposed. It will need to go through it when changes will be made to the hardware configuration for example. Positioning between complete extinction and deep sleep, Windows 8 in any case likely to make very good impression on boot time.
