Apple’s shares reached $ 207.05 in the course of trading, and this allowed the company to achieve market capitalization of $ 1 trillion first.
Over the past 24 hours, quotations to the iPhone manufacturer have grown by 3%. The company increased revenue to $ 53.3 billion, while analysts predicted almost a billion less.
It is also noted that the market capitalization of Amazon has overcome the $ 900 billion mark – this is the second indicator in the “pursuit of a trillion.”
Earlier it was reported that by the middle of the XXI century, Google and Apple can learn to manage people – this conclusion was made by British scientist-futurist Pearson Ian. In recent years, companies are actively engaged in the development of artificial intelligence. Perhaps the next step is biotechnology, he believes.
The scientist suggested that in the near future people will begin to implant chips analyzing the state of the organism and even behavior.
Moreover – the technology will allow to remotely influence the brain neurons. Mankind will lose the opportunity to make independent decisions and will fulfill the will of a small elite group, the futurologist predicts.
