mm? Does that mean "million million"?

MM refers to a thousand thousand, as M is the Roman numeral for 1000.  MM was the standard way of indicating a million, as far as I knew, until the last decade or so.  I think most people just use a single M now.  I sometimes still use MM though.  

That got changed due to 2 reasons: confusion with millimeter (mm), and the fact that in Roman numerals, that doesn't mean thousand times thousand, but thousand plus thousand, aka 2000. In many regions, that has never caught on in the first place due to these reasons.

A single M is doubly practical: It both denotes Million, but also Mega - the latter use having caught on mostly due to computers (Megabytes (though Mebibytes would be more correct if calculating storage sizes), Megahertz...) and electronics (Megawatt, anyone?)

Whether the numbers are a little off or not, that is some impressive revenue/employee ratio for Sony.

Yes that was the portion that made me more surprise, their employment count is much smaller for a similar revenue. And there is still growing opportunity for revenue.

This guy, again?  He just wants them to split, not for the betterment of the company, but so he can get an uptick in his share's prices that would potentially happen if they split.  He was trying to get them to do the opposite, spin off the entertainment portion of the company, just 6-7 years ago.  And they are thriving now because they didn't listen to him.  Wish he'd just shut up and go away.

Building shareholder value is the only reason the company exists.  That can happen one of two ways - by increasing the market price of a share of stock, or by paying a dividend.  Everybody involved in the company should be trying to move the stock price up.  

There are different ways of building value, and short term gain is the worse of them. Pay the speculators but in the end devalue the company.

@The MM discussion. I much better like kk because of MMORPG I played in the past.
