Google is just the latest company to throw their hat in the Hulu ring.

Along with Microsoft and Yahoo, Google has been added to the list of potential buyers interested in purchasing Hulu, which is currently co-owned by Disney, News Corp., NBC Universal and Providence Equity Partners.

If bidders go high enough, analysts say that Hulu could receive about $2 billion-$3 billion in the deal.

Whoa. That's some major dough. If Google takes over Hulu, we wonder how that will affect their deal with YouTube??

Boo! Weinsteins Ignoring The Fraggle Rock Movie!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers

fraggle rock movie being ignored by the weinsteins

We wish the Weinsteins would give us the chance to dance our cares away once again!

We were SO excited to report that a Fraggle Rock live-action musical movie was on the way…back in 2008!

Now, several years later, Fraggle Rock: The Movie director Cory Edwards is ready to move forward, but the Weinstein Company has been totally ignoring him!

Here's what Edwards had to say about it on his blog:

Many, many, many of you have repeatedly asked for some kind of update on the Fraggle Rock movie. The truth is, I got nothin’. There’s nothing to report except that The Weinstein Company has everything they need to move forward, and the ball is in their court. They’ve talked about getting a new writer, which I’m willing to do. They’ve talked about starting over from scratch, which I’m willing to do. But I have not heard a peep from their camp in almost a year.

I completely sympathize with all of you that are waiting for a movie, but let’s all remember that the next best thing to making a Fraggle movie is avoiding making a BAD ONE. So at least we’re doing that. Until something new happens to awaken the project from its deep coma, we can at least enjoy the untainted TV series on DVD and The Hub Network. As for me, I’m already working on new things. I hope you’ll stick around and check in here… I’ll be announcing my next project very, very soon.

Obviously the Weinsteins are going to do whatever they want to do, but in our opinion, we'd say they should give this delightful franchise a little bit of time, and maybe let Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft deal with video games….

Just sayin'!

Would U like to see the Fraggle Rock movie finally happen?

Bill Gates Says Goodbye To Microsoft Shares…Millions At A Time!

Filed under: Tech TalkBusiness Blitz

bill gates sells millions of shares of microsoft

What's the deal, Bill? You ready to make the move to Mac???

Bill Gates has been selling off Microsoft shares by the millions, which is likely to make investors in the company pret-ty concerned.

Regulatory docs show that Gates sold 5 million shares on Feb 3, and ANOTHER 5 million on Feb 2!

According to SEC records, Bill has sold 90 million shares in the past year! At the moment, he holds 591 million shares, which equals around 7% of 8.4 billion total, and he continues to be the "largest single stockholder"…for now.

Microsoft officials have said that Gates is selling off Microsoft shares and investing elsewhere in an effort to diversify his holdings.

Is it just us, or does it sounds like Bill Gates has lost some confidence in Microsoft?

We suppose we can't blame him. If this were 1995, we'd be shocked, but times are changing and Microsoft shares just ain't what they used to be!

Thoughts???
