General Stock Discussion / Re: Coronavirus ?

This is so crazy, now I can't tell you the future but as of now you stand a better chance of dying of heart disease, car accident, weather related injuries, cancer and the list goes on. This is still a very minor virus at this point, you still have more to fear from the flu!!

minor virus?

7% mortality...is minor? good luck

What's your source for that figure?

"What is the mortality rate of the new coronavirus?
It is probably about or a bit less than 1%. Much higher figures have been flying about, but the chief medical officer, Chris Whitty, is one of those who believes it will prove to be 1% or lower. The World Health Organizations director general, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, talked of 3.4%, but his figure was calculated by dividing the number of deaths by the number of officially confirmed cases. We know there are many more mild cases that do not get to hospital and are not being counted, which would bring the mortality rate significantly down.
Deaths are highest in the elderly, with very low rates among younger people, although medical staff who treat patients and get exposed to a lot of virus are thought to be more at risk. But even among the over-80s, 90% will recover."

I have two Canon 5D4's. I fell and can't lift them so I didn't shoot in over a year. I just bought the Iphone 11pro and this phone camera blows the Canon away!

3 letters


and i never use caps, so can you imagine how hard i had to laugh

I have the Samsung Note 10+, which has just as good of a camera as the iPhone 11 Pro Max

interesting, i have one too, but there are 1000s of complaints about the S10+ camera, there are several issues with it. night shots are horrendous, seriously, its not even funny, its an overprocessed noise fest

hdr never turns off, even if you disable it, so most images have low contrast and look shiiiiiiiit, only if hdr is not triggered the images in daylight are fine, i have several submitted and accepted

the selfie camera applies a beauty filter which makes me look like a plastic doll

for a flag ship phone costing around 900 dollar, its a horrendously shiiiiiit camera. and samsung refuses to fix any of this, which pisses off many users

just had to get that off my chest, rant off

Oh bummer, he left.

Red flags because you defend a forum bully and liar when we try to tell the truth to warn others. Why don't you take your own advices and ignore us?

you are dealing with the 3 biggest ignorant f*cks on this site, cathy, laurin and lagereek, the 3 amigos. better log off and continue the conversation elsewhere

I wrote a OptED piece 14 Years ago that "Sooner Or later we will be getting 5 Or 10 Cents a DL."

are you seriously claiming to have predicted this decline by saying sooner or later the price will drop??  applause!

you can't be much good at business if you can't make a profit when you keep 90% of your sales revenue


not sure what point mindfart was trying to make with that example

i left istock a while back too, it was right in the middle of one of their accounting errors, a lot of copntributors had extra cash in their accounts. as it turns out this was also an accounting error and they istock were going to correct the error and lots of accounts were put in red. i also had like $100 extra in my account, but i closed my account and requested pay out. i got the money and my accont was closed. they never recouped their money from me, i must have been in a rare category to be able to take money from istock instead of the other way around lol,

soon you will all be paying to upload your images...mwuahahahahahaaaaaa

not funny, but that comes to mind seeing these bs accounting practices from the almighty getty. never seen a company with such a poor financial administration and so many errors.

It is an absolute nightmare. They were so promising as an actually innovative new idea. Then they got into bed with Getty and sales are absolutely going through the floor. Really depressed about this one.

It really is sad.  Just a year ago, I made $450 there.  This month, looks to be around $40.  Such a good idea too.

is it dilution or something else? my sales, tanked too you know,

mmy sales on canva have tanked, not sure why, but the website down and the announcement might have something to do with it

used to have daily sales, now have 5 day gaps, and overall only sold on 50% of the days in april.,

cant get more moronic, offer your whole library for 29 dollar and allow a full download of the library in one month. not very business savvy. best invest some money to hire a CCO

love it how matt jumps on every thread with positive news, but when the crap hits the fan the replies become far and between., the 12.5% is worrying though, wonder how they are going to spin that.
