German labor union Verdi has called on workers at online retailer Amazon in Germany to go on strike on Thursday as a long-running pay dispute continues. "Amazon is refusing talks about a wage agreement," Verdi negotiator Joerg Lauenroth-Mago said in a statement, saying workers at distribution centers in Leipzig and Bad Hersfeld were to walk off the job starting with the morning shift. Verdi wants Amazon to raise pay for workers at its distribution centers in accordance with collective bargaining agreements across the mail order and retail industry in Germany. Amazon, however, has rejected the demand, arguing that it regards warehouse staff as logistics workers and says they receive above-average pay by the standards of that industry.

By Michael Gold TAIPEI (Reuters) - Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd (TSMC) reported its 8th straight quarter of profit growth, as the world's largest contract chip maker booked wider profit margins following a boost in demand from mobile device manufacturers. Asia's 10th biggest company by market value has been able to consistently profit thanks to the spread of smartphones and its ability to produce a high degree of defect-free chips compared with rivals such as Intel Corp, Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and GlobalFoundries, industry watchers say. That helped net profit rise 21 percent to T$47.9 billion ($1.59 billion) in January-March, the company said in a statement on Thursday. That compared with the T$43.2 billion mean estimate of 19 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters. More »Taiwan's TSMC books eighth straight quarterly profit growth

For the first time ever in Singapore, digital music sales overtook those of CDs and records sales last year. However, this was not because of a huge increase in the digital music sales, but rather far fewer CDs had been sold. In terms of numbers, sales for digital music hit US$5.5 million last year, up 28 per cent from 2012. However, sales of CDs and records dipped by 44 per cent in the same period to S$4.5 million (US$S$4.5 million), based on data from the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI). As a comparison, 5 years back in 2009, sales of CDs and records were worth US$18.8 million and digital music sales were just US$3.4 million. Ang Kwee Tiang, IFPI’s regional director for Asia, blamed the easy access to illegal content online for the drop in CD sales. On top of that, there is a recent explosion of music services, such as Apple’s iTunes, as well as online music streaming services Deezer, Spotify and KKBOX. An album with 12 songs on a CD can cost S$20, but the digital version on iTunes goes for S$12. The rise of music in digital form is inevitable: illegal music downloads are readily accessible in Singapore, ...
