They make money, they only have been around for about 115 years? Hmmm, let's see SNE or Panasonic try that. SNE is toasted already, didn't last very long. Panasonic laid off thousands. Philips, Siemens, GE, created the electrical/electronics world. Philips innovates, and improves your life every day. they are more than a toy maker, like Apple or Sony. Watch the big crash when Apple implodes. Remember when Sony was taking over the world, NOPE! Fast up, fast down. GE, PHILIPS, SIEMENS, slow and steady. They survive everything. Not into fads, they create stuff ya use and need. They create the next STANDARD. They don't repackage someone Else's ideas. Biggest in Lighting #2 in medical, world's largest PRIVATE research org.
