  • AT&T launches gigabit Internet offering in Charlotte [View news story]
    The point is, to get that price you have to agree to AT&T tracking your Web activities, to enable the ad targeting. Otherwise the price is higher than that, whereas Google has just the one price per city.

  • Disney unveils high-tech, active-play Playmation toys [View news story]
    *A* "Hulk Hands" have been out before, but not a Bluetoothy, infrared, motion-sensing Playmation style Hulk Hands. So I assume they have something else up their sleeve (or should, if it's also going to cost a lot)

    Also bear in mind that we're a ways out to get a clear estimate -- the whole line isn't just going to be $120; there will probably be a wide variety of price points and many things beyond the first showcase product.

  • Canadian upfronts at smaller scale this year [View news story]
    These are meetings/presentations where the broadcasters put on a show for advertisers, and based on what they see, the advertisers/agencies purchase a lot of their commercial airtime on programs "up front," months ahead of the upcoming TV season. Oftentimes it comes alongside the most solid news about returning/canceled programs.

    Nothing's "made up" here. If you click through, you'd find a wealth of (complex) info on the cases, and that number comes from prior litigation with SIRI.

  • Take-Two misses revenues after heavy deferrals [View news story]
    Looks like a comment glitch hid these for a while. Incidentally, when we do earnings coverage we link the original press releases and other docs directly from the item ... you can see it at the bottom of item above.

    Yes -- the freshly released part was an incidental comment about that game and yes it should be a key contributor to Q1.
