Google pays $10 million for fflick

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on January 25th, 2011

$10 million to Google is like $1 for us. Just a drop in the bucket. That’s how much the company paid to buy movie recommendation site fflick. It looks like this is a strategic move to boost its upcoming YouTube movie service. It is a movie recommendation site after all.

The deal is currently in progress and will help Google gain access to a Twitter-based sentiment engine that is capable of gauging whether viewers prefer a particular movie or whether it has recieved enough pre-release momentum. It isn’t clear whether fflick will survive as an independent company or will be consumed wholly by the almighty Google. The buyout should be announced formally before the week is over.

Well, they said they would do it and sure enough Samsung has now met it’s goal and sold 10 million Galaxy S smartphones around the world. This was accomplished in less than seven months since the device first hit the market.

North American sales contributed to about 4 million, followed by Europe at 2.5 million. Now that they have achieved this goal, maybe they can offer up the long-delayed Android 2.2 Froyo update to those millions of Galaxy S phones. What do you think Samsung?

Samsung says it will sell 10 million Galaxy Tabs

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on September 7th, 2010

So, we are still waiting on the final word of pricing and availability for the Galaxy Tab, but Samsung is already making some pretty bold claims about it. Samsung product executive Hankil Yoon said that the company expects to ship 10 million Galaxy Tabs and grab a third of the global tablet market by next year.

That’s pretty bold talk. Yoon also added that Samsung eventually plans to introduce a whole family of Galaxy Tab devices, though it’s unclear if those factor into his numbers. We will see if they can manage numbers like that in time.
