Disney Buys Lucasfilm for 4.4 BILLION Dollars, #BeAfraid

Yes it really happened and yeas that is a real number. Mega business conglomerate Disney (known as Mauschwitz in SoCal) bought the infamous Lucasfilm Ltd. for almost 4.5 BILLION dollars, including shares.

According to ComingSoon.net;

Under the terms of the agreement and based on the closing price of Disney stock on October 26, 2012, the transaction value is $4.05 billion, with Disney paying approximately half of the consideration in cash and issuing approximately 40 million shares at closing. The final consideration will be subject to customary post-closing balance sheet adjustments.

No joke. It seems this merger is taking Princess Leia, Luke and Jar Jar please-stfu-Binks to a whole new level of wrong.

Why do I say wrong? Because Lucasfilm has agreed to deliver Star Wars 7 in 2015! Oh yes. Oh no. Not quite sure what to think here. It could be balls out amazing, especially in the graphics department if Disney is helping produce this.

What do we say, yay or nay? Give us your opinion below.

 

It Doesn’t Take a Genius: iPhone vs. Samsung S3 Android, a Snappy Comeback/Slap in the Face

Recently our trusty Android’s from Samsung took a rather nasty legal hit (read HERE; http://phandroid.com/2012/08/24/breaking-verdict-reached-in-apple-v-samsung-patent-trial/) by the makers of iPhone in the legal department. Although they may have to pay 1.049 billion in damages, something tells me Samsung will make it back quickly with this advertisement;

Ouch! Apple ‘Geniuses’ beware. Droid has it out for you. Besides, the full specs on the S3 in that ad make iPhone look second par. And it is. Unknown to many users of the tech trendy iPhone, Droid’s are the number phone in the good ol USA.

As far as advertising, I’m wondering how iPhone will strike back. I’m sure Siri is plotting revenge as we speak.

What do you use?

Nerd News Flash! Yahoo Hires New CMO, Genius Marissa Mayer….While Other CMO is on Vacation!!

I have seen some shifty moves in business. I have seen some of the nastiest business cat fights go down. We all know no one has a safe job in this economy. You may get fired the dy you get fired. It’s a low move but possible.This however takes the cake.

We shall call this move,’Business 101: Fuckery’.

Current CMO of Yahoo, Mollie Spillman, was of vacationing at the beach. She was trying to unwind from working at one of the largest internet companies in the country. While she took a moment away from the office to regain her humanity, she was replaced by Marissa Mayer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poor Mollie found out 10 minutes before the news was announced to the entire company. Ouch.

A source close to the situation tells us Mayer informed the vacationing Spillman of the news only ten minutes before it broke.

“She was blindsided,” said this source. Mayer and Spillman have worked closely together in the weeks since she became CEO, and the fact that Mayer was looking for her replacement never came up.

Zuckerberg Got Hitched, Not in a Hoodie

Mark Zuckerberg married 27year old Priscilla Chan Saturday. Although many internet jokes will surround this wedding, Zuckerberg opted for a traditional dress as did his new wife.

According to the lovely Esther Goldberg at EstherGoldberg.com:

Chan graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, on Monday, the same day Zuckerberg turned 28.

The couple met at Harvard and have been together for more than nine years.

A source authorized by the couple to speak said Zuckerberg designed the ring featuring “a very simple ruby.

At 28 Zuckerberg owns one of the most successful companies and is watching his finances soar since he went public. Perfect date, timing and dress.

Happy Trails and good luck to the happy couple!

Mark Zuckerberg Gets His Hoodie Freak On….On Wall Street

Today Mark Zuckerberg showed up to his meeting with major Wall Street conglomerates wearing his signature hoodie. Next week Facebooks billion dollar stock will hit the market. This casual attitude made many bankers ‘uncomfortable’ feeling that Zuckerberg was ‘too immature’ to run the company.

Question? Inferiority complex much? Sounds like Wall Street could use some fashion advice from this 30 something year old seeing as Facebook now has 901 million users.

Suck it up seersucker suits. You’re yesterdays news and fashion statement. Let tech reign free!
