What’s trending today? Well.. it’s not pretty but in some ways true. News regarding the end of the world has been generating quite the buzz, especially since it says that the end of the world will happen on the end of this month, July 29th 2016 to be exact. The information on this news is based on a youtube video “End Times Prophecies”.
Based on Sonar’s findings, news on this particular information that was posted by Merdeka.com on July 16th 2016 already has more than 1.582 comments from local Indonesian netizens. Although, most netizens don’t seem to buy into this information, some even calling it ‘just a rumor’, because there has been a lot of false information on when the end of the world going to come, yet until now none of these theories or rumors have been proven. Perhaps, it is because most Indonesian people are true believers of what their religion says about this matter rather than a youtube video or a news post.
Although, maybe the real end the world is happening to Seagate Technology as we speak. This manufacturing company for computer components keep experiencing decline in revenue forcing them to let go of about 14% of their employees in a global scale, which roughly equals to about 6.500 employees.
The declining sales of computers or PC is not only effecting Seagate. Not long ago, Intel also came to a decision to let go of 12.000 employees in 2017. The reality is that the market is always changing following the innovation of technology. These changes are bound to effect businesses one way or another, some businesses will rise and some will face struggles from time to time.
