Clues From The News!

Hints For Business from Today's News Stories

RBA 'SNAPSOT' Shows 'Services' Dominating

The latest 'Snapshot of the Australian Economy' just published by the Reserve Bank of Australia, shows the economy to be growing by 1.8%, year on year. Too slow for many businesses, but still growing ahead of population growth, which was 1.4%. Australia's population is now 24.1 million people.

However, inflation was 1.5% - and this suggests that serious underlying sluggishness still persists.

Significantly, it was the service sector that again took the lion's share of activity, at 59%, compared with 9% for construction, and just 5% for retail.

And what is your clue from these latest RBA figures? Trade hard - just like we suggest in our merchandising series in 'Management Memos'. And where you can, develop your service offer in tandem with your product offerings.

Android - Miles in Front!

According to Gartner Inc, technology market researchers, Google's 'Android' mobile phone system outsold everyone else by a wide margin.

Google Android: 81.7%
Apple iOS: 17.9%
Microsoft Windows: 0.3%
Other: 0.1%
BlackBerry: 0.0%

Apple is clearly a long-way-back second place-getter in operating systems compared with Android, but Apple edged out Samsung in smartphone hardware market share, 17.9% to 17.8%. This was most likely impacted by the Samsung 'Note 7' debacle.
