shutterfly is a big company who will step on little people to man thier work.  I was there off/on for about 2 years in different areas of their warehouse.  I was a quick learner, trained new people, and even knew how to work many areas including heavy machinery.  I never got hired on and was disposable whenever "work was slow."  As soon as it would pick up again they would call me back but only to be let go in a week or two.  So, after my lead supervisor encouraged me to look for another job I left and have been at a great steady job which I know appreciates me for what I can bring to the table not just using me for production value.

facebook is a fad where the owners are trying to suck all the cash and life out of facebook as its lifespan is short. facebook produces nothing and is not a good vehicle for Marketing. Companies and people who pay to advertise on facebook are simply stupid.

Apple doesn't "manufacture" anything, as the slideshow says, unless you count programming as manufacturing.

"Rummy"?

 

His quote is up there with "It is what it is"..or is it?

 Well, maybe it is what it isn't?

No, it can't be what it isn't? Can it?

So are we sure it is what it is?

 

Predict ANY stocks. Go on. Any sector. You're psychic...

well, well what was known before we attacked Iraq was the known fact from the outside US inspectors(UN Blix) that there were no weapons of mass destruction---one trillion Dollars later we now know that should have been known and is once again now known, but the US Brawn factor had to get involved!!

In EU we cal that a lie!

This list is proof that the economy is toast.  Services...database/speed aps...social networking and marketing for customers?  There is no base wealth creation in any these fields and are unsustainable unless we start to make "things" that people need and want.  Our markets are saturated and there is no demand for anything...that is waht creates a growing economy...the rest is all scams and bubbles waiting to go public...what a laugh.  Articles like these ARE their marketing...hoping to appeal to your greed to get you to "invest" in their unsustainable schemes...

I may be wrong, but is this one of the guys who gathers private info and sells it? If so....the Hades with him...take him down. If...he isn't, well, what does he REALLY do? It makes sense if he mines data to sell, of COURSE he will be making lots of money. The fact is...anyone who sells private info on people makes money, they have skirted around privacy laws. I would never invest in these flea bags...laws will catch up with these scum bags soon enough.

Funny thing is these aren't the biggest companies, just the ones that have had their stocks move the most recently. I'm pretty sure the Federal Reserve Bank is the largest privately owned business. Not to mention it's sister companies. All the sales, that the companies mentioned in this article have done, have been processed through a bank and been charged a fee. So don't think for a second that these are the big power house companies that the 1%ers invest and own. Follow the money and you'll find the power

I am betting the biggest company in the world will be 100% non tech before the decade is out.

Are you kidding, all of you need to stop these outright lies. Last Thanksgivng, black friday, cyber monday and Xmas sales were VERY GOOD (and they did there best to hide it) people are getting jobs that actually try. The stores I go to are PACKED - COSTCO - WALMART- TARGET. Every venue and outlet I goto is busy. THE ECONOMY IS NOT THAT BAD ASIDE FROM LAZY PEOPLE. Every where I look people are getting jobs, spending money, buying houses and filling up 5$ / gal gas which is even more proof the economy is NOT down or else gas would be <4$ gallon
