LG's mobile division continues to struggle amid otherwise strong 2018 financial results

It's time for full-year 2018 financial results. Samsung has already posted numbers showing less than stellar profits for its mobile division, and now its the turn of South Korea's other tech giant, LG.

I actually used to use it pretty often, but as the app became increasingly bloated and sluggish, my friends and I defected to other services or just stopped altogether.

Alphabet reports earnings: Q4 loss of $3 billion after major tax hit, but hardware shipments "double"

Alphabet reported today in its annual earnings call that the company's fiscal Q4 was a bit of a dismal one, owing to a decision to provision a new tax on foreign assets ahead into the 2017 fiscal year. Basically, Google took a $9.9 billion tax hit in the last quarter of 2017, dramatically lowering the effective net income the company earned for the whole of the fiscal year.

Google lost $3 billion in Q4, but for 2017 overall, it managed net income of $12.7 billion on revenues of $110.8 billion. While net income is down versus 2016 ($19.5 billion), revenues are way up - around 23%.
