"HBO Go" Online Channel 05 August 2008

Time Warner Inc. chairman and CEO Jeff Bewkes unveiled HBO Go, a broadband complement to the premium network only for subscribers to the television service.

“We’re all being too slow,” Bewkes said. “We should put up all our networks on the Internet, out on broadband, right now. Get it out on home screens, broadband screens, put it on the Hulus and YouTubes, but only if people are subscribing to the video plant.”

At The Cable Show ’09, Bewkes unveiled a video of HBO Go, the broadband service that is only available to subscribers to the premium channel.

Google In Talks To Acquire Twitter 06 April 2009

Twitter turned down an offer to be bought by Facebook just a few months ago for half a billion dollars, although that was based partially on overvalued Facebook stock. Google would be paying in cash and/or publicly valued stock, which is equivalent to cash. So whatever the final acquisition value might be, it can't be compared apples-to-apples with the Facebook deal.

CNN.com and Facebook on Feb. 24 will attempt to replicate their wildly successful live streaming/commenting collaboration as seen during President Barack Obama’s inauguration, as the site ramps up coverage of the new president’s much-anticipated State of the Union Address.

As with the inauguration on Jan. 20, which yielded record-smashing traffic numbers ( see this earlier report), CNN.com visitors will be able to stream live coverage of the address, while concurrently commenting on the address via their Facebook status-updating tool -- all on a single Web page. And just like last time, viewer’ friends will be notified about the CNN.com Live coverage via their Facebook News Feeds.
