  • Netflix pulled into media sell-off [View news story]
    @rachcom
    They break out subs. that are paying and non-paying (on the free trial, bad credit card etc.) what else could they do? They don't even premiere their original shows at the end of the quarter, that way it would be easy for them to juice new subs. by releasing a show a week before the end of the quarter.

    House of Cards premiered Feb. 27
    Daredevil April 10
    Wet Hot American Summer July 31
    And the burden of proof is on you, can't make a claim and then tell someone to disprove your claim to back up your claim.

    @Glen Rivard
    Why are you presuming that when Jobs didn't care about market share anytime for the Mac?

  • Zynga: Slots, Slots, And More Slots [View article]
    I don't trust these app makers, no one has been able to make the 2nd hit. So far Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Draw Something, Farmvillie, etc. have all had high highs and then steep falls.

  • In new partnership, HBO gets to 'Sesame Street' first [View news story]
    Apple wants to be in the TV market, but they don't want to have to spend 75-80 Billion, not to mention that's only one of the main players. They would still have to write a check to Disney, Fox, Universal and Viacom

    I think people would rather pay that than pay $800 up front for a phone. Even if you save more in the long run.

    yep, the media companies want you to pay $10 for Netflix, $10 for Hulu, $100 for Amazon (annually), $20 for Sling, $15 for HBO, and $50 for basic cable. They have no incentive to give Apple everything for $40

    Right now Apple, and Google for that matter, needs the content companies more than the content companies need the tech guys. If the channels don't get the perfect deal from Apple it doesn't matter because they are still getting checks from DirecTV, Comcast, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Sling, Sony, etc. And if the tech companies don't get the perfect deal, the one the user wants, the services will be bad and people won't use them; like Sling TV.

  • Hulu weighs adding ad-free option [View news story]
    Hulu may get some heat for pricing that service at HBO/Showtime territory when they aren't on that level yet.

  • Subscriber growth dazzles at Netflix [View news story]
    Apple and Netflix aren't event trying to do the same thing, Les Moonves of CBS publicly said that Apple wants to do live TV mini-bundles (sort of like Sling), I'm going to trust him over you

    Netflix does break out subs. that are pay and that are on the free trial every quarter, this quarter they 65.55M total subs and 62.71M paying subs. So 2.84M subs not paying, they add 3.28M subs in this quarter.

  • Microsoft strikes ad deal with AOL/Verizon; Bing to power AOL search [View news story]
    I realize that soda sales are down and everything else wrong with that analogy I was just trying to make a point, the business that Microsoft is 2nd fiddle to Apple in is growing while all the other businesses that Microsoft leads Apple in are shrinking.

  • Microsoft strikes ad deal with AOL/Verizon; Bing to power AOL search [View news story]
    Phones is a big thing to be be second fiddle in, especially considering that Apple's iPhone business is bigger than all of Microsoft. This is kind of like saying Coke is only bigger than Pepsi in soda. The other areas Microsoft beats Apple in aren't that big of a deal compared to the phone/mobile business.

  • Google misses out on Apple's transaction fees [View news story]
    @David Wait are you saying Apple doesn't collect data about their users? They kind of have to to make their products good, it would be annoying to keep getting iTunes recommendations from a song you already bought from iTunes
