Immigration minister Green said yesterday the figures “show why we must tighten our immigration system in order to reduce net migration to manageable levels”.However, business secretary Vince Cable disputed the Conservative spin on the statistics, telling the Financial Times: “It’s very clear from the figures that the increase in recorded immigration has nothing to do with the number of non-EU work permits issued: they actually declined.”Business bodies including the CBI and the Chartered Institute for Personnel and Development have come out against a cap on the number of immigrants, claiming it will make the UK less competitive. center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy Fanautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comAtlantic MirrorA Kilimanjaro Discovery Has Proved This About The BibleAtlantic MirrorTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastTrading BlvdThis Picture of Prince Harry & Father at The Same Age Will Shock YouTrading Blvd Share Thursday 26 August 2010 8:56 pm Show Comments ▼ KCS-content last_img read more

BHP, the Anglo-Australian mining giant, earlier this month launched a $38.6bn (£24.1bn) hostile takeover bid for Potash Corp, the world’s largest fertiliser company.Potash said in a letter to its customers it recently learned that Chris Ryder, the head of potash marketing for BHP, had called many of them.“Since the purpose of BHP Billiton’s call clearly was not to solicit your potash order from BHP Billiton’s Jansen project…we consider this contact to be inappropriate,” said Stephen Dowdle, Potash Corp’s head of sales, in the letter dated 30 August.“We can only assume that BHP Billiton’s purpose is to sow seeds of doubt and confusion about the future of Potash,” he added. last_img read more

The European Union Court of Justice upheld a 2008 ruling by the General Court, which dismissed Lego’s challenge to the decision by trademark agency OHIM.In 2004, OHIM repealed an earlier decision to grant trademark rights for Lego bricks after objections from Canadian toymaker Mega Brands. Peter Kjaer, head of Lego’s intellectual property section, said. “It is naturally a matter of concern to us that use of the brick by others can dilute the trademark. But the worst aspect is that consumers will be misled.” Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ whatsapp whatsapp KCS-content last_img read more

House prices rose 8.3% year-on-year in August

September 4, 2021

first_img whatsapp HOUSE prices grew 8.3 per cent year-on-year in August, slightly down on July’s figure of 8.4 per cent, official figures showed yesterday. Property prices rose 0.7 per cent in August, helping the annual rate of growth recover some ground after July’s 0.3 per cent fall. The Department of Communities and Local Government said the average UK house price now stood at £213,116. But it also showed house price inflation had eased by more than half from 1.7 per cent in the second quarter to 0.8 per cent in the third quarter. The figures showed the average price paid by first time buyers increased by 8.2 per cent in the year.

Apple vies for Lion’s share of app market

September 4, 2021

first_img Apple vies for Lion’s share of app market Apple is trailing behind Google in this area, which is increasingly seen as one of the most important battles in consumer technology. By encouraging its users to download more apps, which will also be playable on the firm’s portable devices, it can claw back ground from Google.And with apps integrating across its platforms, there is even greater incentive to own the whole range of Apple products. This is a very shrewd release.THE NEXT GENERATION | APPLE’S LATEST RELEASESThe new MacBook AirWhile the trend in notebooks is towards cheaper, Apple’s smallest offering is resolutely high-end. The latest version is even faster than its predecessor and more reliable, with annoying hard drive crashes eliminated. It also takes the multi-touch trackpad to a new level, borrowing from the touch interface of the iPad.FaceTime for MacsApple is soldiering on with video conferencing, even after most developers gave up on the idea more than a decade ago. It will now allow calls from iPhones (and the new iPod Touch) to Macs, and vice versa. This promises to work seamlessly with the built in Mac camera and microphone. If anyone can make it work, Steve Jobs can.iLife 11An upgrade to Apple’s photos, movies and music logging and editing software package. Apple is pushing the “full screen mode” feature, dedicating more space to the programme as desktops become increasingly cluttered.OSX LionAs above, released next summer. KCS-content whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Thursday 21 October 2010 7:50 pm Tags: NULL JUST two days after reporting yet another quarter of record revenues and profits, Apple wheeled out the latest version of its ultra-thin MacBook air. With the roaring success of the iPhone 4 and the iPad – which Apple still can’t produce quickly enough to meet demand – the release of a new ºlaptop, albeit the thinnest, sleekest one on the market – seemed almost anachronistic.But, as Apple continues to micro-manage its position in the market with the precision of a military general, it is the software update that accompanied the new product that is of greatest interest.OSX Lion, the latest version of its operating system, is a significant step towards Apple fully integrating its three main platforms, and it borrows heavily from the technology that has pushed its iPad and iPhones to a combined 18m sales in the last three months alone.The most lucrative development for Apple is creating a portal on its laptops to its hugely successful App Store. While users can still download other software, this allows them to easily purchase the plethora of useful – and not so useful – applications available on their iPhones, directly to their desktop. Expect to see even more people playing Angry Birds next time you visit Starbucks.The advantage to Apple is obvious – it can rake in an even bigger slice of the now vast application revenue pool (an estimated 5bn apps have now been downloaded through the App Store, with Apple pocketing a third of the cover price). Moreover it consolidates Apple’s position as a frontrunner in the sector, in which Google’s Android Market is becoming increasingly powerful.It is also a chance for Apple to build towards its target of controlling the lions share of the mobile advertising market. Earlier this year it unveiled iAds, a platform which allows application developers – and Apple itself – to make money from advertising contained within apps. Sharelast_img read more

The update was not a full earnings report and did not detail profits, but chief executive and chairman Henri de Castries warned: “The decline in interest rates is expected to affect new business margins as measured at year end.” Low interest rates reduce the amount of money that insurance companies can make from lending money.Execution Noble’s Joe Dickerson says the update shows that Axa is suffering from the popularity of traditional policies (as opposed to unit-linked policies), which are less profitable when interest rates are low.“They probably had hoped to escape that impact by selling non-traditional policies. But where the sales have held up is in traditional policies, which are sensitive to interest rates,” he said.Axa has struggled in the US, where its business is shrinking. But yesterday the firm struck a deal with the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China to expand sales in China.

The share buyback represents almost a third of the firm’s market capitalisation.Last week the firm, led by chief executive Mike Lawrie, reported a rise in new banking orders, saying this is a sign that clients are more upbeat about the future. It forecast banking order intake will reach £41-42m this year, up from £38.1m a year ago.However, it said its first-half performance would be flat after large orders in its Treasury & Capital Markets business were delayed.The company, which sold its Allscripts healthcare unit in June, said adjusted operating profit for the six months to the end of November would be £20-23m, against £21.6m a year earlier, on revenue of £160-162m.It said it expected the delayed deals to close in the second half, and its targets for the two years to the end of May 2012 remained unchanged. It said in September it forecast five to eight per cent revenue growth in the medium term.
