Joojoo Tablet: Had Only 90 Preorders

What is worse than only getting 90 pre-orders for your new product? Having 15 of those orders cancelled. Ouch. Good luck Crunchy-JooJoo-Pad, you are going to seriously need it.

These Paypal documents from the JooJoo/Techcrunch lawsuit show that only 90 preorders for the $500 device, roughly $44k worth, were made. This is what happens when you launch a tablet the same month as Apple, at the same price. And 15 of those turned into cancellations


Why Internet Connections are Fastest in South Korea

Guess what?!?! South Korea has faster internet than the U.S. does (along with 16 other countries)! Making matters worse, internet access in South Korea is almost half the price we pay! Blame [H] reader J-Will for the news.

Broadband Internet speeds in the United States are only about one-fourth as fast as those in South Korea, the world leader, according to the Internet monitoring firm Akamai. And, as if to add insult to injury, U.S. Internet connections are more expensive than those in South Korea, too.

Activision Restructures Senior Management & Internal Organization

According to the Los Angeles Times, Activision has restructured its senior management team and internal organization. Normally this story wouldn’t be a big deal, except for the fact that it was all kept so hush hush. According to the article, not even investors were notified of the restructuring.

As outlined in internal memos obtained by the Times, Santa Monica-based Activision Blizzard Inc. has divided itself into four units, with one focused on the military video game Call of Duty, another handling other internally owned properties such as Guitar Hero and the Tony Hawk skateboarding games, and a third handling licensed properties. Blizzard Entertainment, maker of the successful online game World of Warcraft, remains an independent unit.


Lawsuit Takes Aim at People Swapping Movies Online

The U.S. Copyright Group has filed a lawsuit against 20,000 people for sharing movies over the internet. All 20k people shared the movie Far Cry…you'd think watching that would be punishment enough but it isn’t…the USCG is going after another 30,000 people next.

For its first attempt to win financial compensation from file sharers, the USCG is working with small, independent film producers to sue individuals over the illegal downloading of five movies: "Steam Experiment," "Far Cry," "Uncross the Stars," "Gray Man," and "Call of the Wild 3D." A second case against a further 30,000 file sharers will include another five films whose titles have not been disclosed, according to THR.
