Netflix Streams on Selected Androids Only

Written on November 15, 2010 by B Waldorf

This news is somewhat on the gray area. Netflix will be start streaming on Android devices but on just selected units. What do you think?

Year 2011 will be a good start for something new. As with Android users, Netflix will stream on you smartphones starting next year. No need to envy your friends friends who use WP7 or iPhone mobiles. Unfortunately, the app is limited to a few Android OS.

Netflix’s product development head, Greg Peters, reinstated in his blog yesterday that “the lack of a generic and complete platform security and content protection mechanism available for Android” was the one thing which stops the expansion of the platform to other Android devices.

“We are eager to launch on these devices and are disappointed that we haven’t been able to do so already,” he also wrote.

Since there’s no solution yet, Netflix works now with individual hardware manufacturers to the supported devices. First batch of the decives will be getting the app by 2011. But Peters said the company is already working on a platform-wide solution but no final words about the release date.

Let’s wait and see to where this project goes.

The Effects of ‘The Social Network’ to Facebook

Written on October 13, 2010 by B Waldorf

The movie 'The Social Network' received good reviews. But after the movie was shown, how does people perceive Facebook now? The people YouGov BrandIndex got the answers.

Facebook is a popular brand name on its own, but what happened to it after a movie based on it was shown on theaters? The folks behind YouGov BrandIndex, a daily consumer perception research service, gathered the data and analyzed it. It has been a trending topic that the portrayal of Mark Zuckerberg is more villain than heroic. Even the man himself was disturbed about the film. But the movie, in a way, presented the story behind Facebook. Plus, it has already left its mark in history.

YouGov BrandIndex took all the necessary achievements of the movie and studied if it pushed up or down the integrity of Facebook. A demographic chart was made between September 16,2010 and October 6,2010.

YouGov BrandIndex asked respondents: “Do you have a general positive feeling about the brand?”

The Fall of 3D: Here to Stay, Will Stay That Way

Written on July 27, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

3D screening started to fall shortly after the rise of Avatar. What lies for 3D screening in the near future? Get ready to put on your glasses and find some answers.

Before the turn of the year, in December, the clamor for moviegoers was to see Avatar in 3D – or they would miss out on this rare experience. Halfway through the year, “rare” fits the bill well enough. The 3D experience has become a commonplace concept in cinemas, and it is starting to fade away into the back of people’s minds.

Now that 3D screening has been made more accessible to the public, proven by the following suit of How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek and Toy Story after James Cameron’s big screen comeback piece emerged in the box office, the people are not actually buying the idea of Hollywood’s running a 3D filming marathon.

They would rather put in 10 bucks for a 2D screening than spend 15 for a 3D screening. This is an apparent trend, and is backed up by statistics that show the decline from the whopping 71% slice of Avatar’s earnings from 3D showings alone, to the almost-groundlicking 45% in 3D showings returns of the latest animated film release, Despicable Me.
