  • Bettors on big swings in Netflix stock run for the exits

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:42 PM EDT

    By David Gaffen NEW YORK (Reuters) - Options investors expecting a big move in Netflix shares after the video streaming service posted earnings didn't get what they wanted, and they're fleeing en masse on Tuesday. Headed into Netflix Inc's earnings after the close of Monday's trading, the expectation was for the stock to move by about $39 a share, or about 11 percent, by the end of the week. That's a bit boring by Netflix standards, as the stock has averaged a move of about 18 percent in the last six quarters the day after reporting earnings. However, on Tuesday, Netflix was up just $17.51 or 5 percent at $366, well short of the usual move, disappointing those who were looking for a lot of volatility that could carry the stock close to $400.

  • Netflix price hikes seen boosting global expansion

    Reuters - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:41 PM EDT

    (Reuters) - Netflix Inc's planned price hikes will allow the video streaming company to increase spending on original content that will help attract more customers globally, analysts said, as many of them raised their price targets on the stock. Netflix's shares rose more than 9 percent in early trading on Tuesday after the company said it planned to increase prices for new subscribers and reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit. At least nine brokerages raised their price targets on the stock. Raymond James and Cantor Fitzgerald upgraded the stock to their equivalent of a "buy" rating, citing strong growth prospects from international markets.

  • Report Shows Cyber Crime is on the Rise

    The Atlantic Wire - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:38 PM EDT

    "The bad guys are winning," according to Verizon's 2014 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) that says there's large increase in cyber crime. d the report's lead author Wade Baker says " But somehow that's not all bad news?  According to the authors, this year more than 63,000 security incidents were analyzed, but the high figure shouldn't be too intimidating:  This evolution  of the DBiR reflects the experience of many security practitioners and executives who know that an incident needn’t result in data exfiltration for it to have a significant impact on the targeted business. The report, which has been compiled by Verizon's security arm every year for the last decade, finds that 97 percent of crimes fall into nine categories of security breaches, including point of sales intrusions, web app attacks, cyber espionage, insider misuse, card skimmers, DoS attacks, crimeware, miscellaneous errors and physical theft.  More »Report Shows Cyber Crime is on the Rise

    Amazon's got at least one smartphone up its sleeves, and we know it's going to feature some curious 3D effects thanks to a slew of sensors and a quartet of front-facing cameras. That's not all she wrote, though: previous reports alleged that users could tilt their Amazon phones to and fro to interact with apps, and BGR claims to have more dirt on how that feature works. If true, tilting an Amazon phone could be one of most important things you could do to it. More »Tilting Amazon's phone could be the most important thing you do with it

    To finish an article on the web today is to immediately enter the desperate, and strangely tedious, world of "content discovery." Eager to keep visitors on their websites for as long as possible, publishers have long built widgets filled with links for their readers to consider. But increasingly, those links are pointing away from their own sites to titillating items from other publishers, many of whom have something to sell. Readers are clicking, publishers are reaping millions, and the startups that power these modules are profitable and on the cusp of becoming public companies. Over the past few years, paid links like these have popped up on some of the biggest sites of the web: CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, USA Today, and Huffington Post, to name a few.

    BGR.com - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:26 PM EDT

    HBO is looking to convince even more people to watch its TV shows by promoting HBO Go as a solid way to avoid all those awkward moments that may pop up while watching TV with the whole family. The company released seven short ads centered around various popular HBO shows including Game of Thrones, True Detective, True Blood, Girls and Curb Your Enthusiasm, highlighting certain scenes that may spark unusual family conversation. The fix, in all those cases, is HBO Go, which would let users watch any HBO programs on other devices instead of the TV, thus leaving them undisturbed by potentially annoying conversations. What the ads don’t really say is that users will need an active HBO subscription in order to actually More »7 awesome HBO Go ads you really have to watch right now

  • Did you miss last week’s blood moon? Check out this awesome time-lapse photo

    BGR.com - Tue, Apr 22, 2014 12:05 PM EDT

    Last week’s rare blood moon eclipse was amazing, but it also took place in the middle of the night so most people in the U.S. probably missed it. But there is no need to fret, of course — that’s why Al Gore invented the Internet. We have all undoubtedly seen photos of the blood moon eclipse that took place in the wee hours of the morning on April 15th. It was the first of four coming eclipses where the moon will glow red in the sky, so three more opportunities to catch one are coming. Those who don’t feel like waiting for October to see the next blood moon are in luck though, because Wired posted a great little GIF on More »Did you miss last week’s blood moon?
