Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on March 24th, 2011

Samsung must be breaking out the champagne right about now, since its App Store has passed 100 million downloads of mobile and TV applications. That didn’t take long. Samsung’s App Store was opened in June 2010 and now has a total of 13,000+ apps for users to download onto their Samsung mobile phones and TV’s. And users have been doing just that.

Users in France downloaded the most, followed by Germany and Spain. Those three countries account for 40 percent of the total downloads recorded. Europeans obviously love what Samsung is offering. Sure those are not Apple numbers, but we are talking Samsung not Apple.

Netflix to spend over $100 million outbidding cable networks for new TV show?

Posted in Netflix by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2011

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has said in the past that the company would avoid getting into the content business, however Deadline Hollywood is reporting that it outbid cable channels like HBO and AMC for a new David Fincher drama starring Kevin Spacey.

The show is called House of Cards. The deal is apparently still being negotiated but Netflix will be committing to two seasons which could cost it more than $100 million. This deal if true, puts the company directly in competition with the pay-TV business. Move over HBO and showtime.
