Amazon Gives Student $6,000 Of Free Stuff

Robert Quinn is a 22 year old student in London and Amazon just took care of all the Christmas shopping and the cost of designing a cannabis grinder!

Last week the deliveries just started pouring in: he received a 55-inch 3D TV worth about $1,400, a Galaxy Tab Pro which would usually have set him back over $500, two more tablets, a leaf blower, a stroller, a PSP console, a projector and other items.

In an interview with Daily Mail Robert said the following:

“At first I phoned up Amazon and they said that people must be ‘gifting’ them to me, but there’s no way that’s happening because I don’t know any of these people,” he said.

“I was worried that people were losing out on their stuff so I phoned Amazon again and said I’m happy to accept these gifts if they are footing the cost, but I’m not happy if these people are going to lose out. But Amazon said ‘it’s on us’.”

The student said he would give away some of the products as Christmas presents, some to charity and sell others so he could fund a cannabis grinder he has been working on.

TV Shipments Set To Reach 230 Million In 2015

According to Digitimes, TV shipments will grow 10% in 2015 and reach 230 million units.

The increase is driven by the demand for large-size TVs in established markets and small-sized TVs in emerging markets.

In the US there will be strong demand for Ultra HD TVs and China will see increased sales on UHD TVs in the 40 and 50 inch segment.

In emerging markets there is mainly demand for 24, 26 and 32 inch TVs.

Samsung is planning to ship 60 million TVs which would give them a 26% global market share.
