How much is Opera worth?

Last week we posted up a link to the rumors that Facebook is possibly interested in buying Opera (web browser). We talked about these rumors on episode 161 of Weekly Tech Update and asked the question, "How much is Opera worth?". Well, according to the Globe and Mail, we guessed way too low as they are predicting that Opera Software would cost Facebook around $1 Billion dollars to buy. This probably isn't too big of a deal for a company that was valued at over $100 Billion dollars at its IPO, and the purchase might distract people from the fact that Facebook's stock is quickly dropping.

Opera Software would cost Facebook over $1-billion as competition from Google and others could push up the price tag, analysts said on Tuesday, as takeover talk pushed the web browser-makers shares up as much as 26 per cent on Tuesday.

Oslo-listed Opera, coveted for its advanced mobile phone software technology, could be a perfect fit for Facebook but the firm’s business is also vital to some of the industry’s biggest players. Any bid is likely to attract others to the table.


Independent Games Sale (up to 80% off)

If you are looking for a new game for you PC, Mac, or Phone (iOS and Android) you might want to check out a special promotion called "Because We May". For the rest of the week this group is offering games from independent developers at deeply discounted prices (up to 80% off). Head on over to Because We May and follow the links to check out the deals.

We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.

For the last week of May (May 24 through June 1) our games will be deeply discounted to celebrate online stores that give us control over pricing: The App Store, Google Play, Steam, Desura, IndieVania, and a few others.


Mario Tank

If you're a old-school gamer and a fan on Mario, you'll love how this fish tank looks.  I'm a fan for sure and am wondering why pet stores don't stock things like this.  Head on over and see all the details at Geek-O-System.

2013 Console Launches

It is possible that the next generations of consoles from Microsoft and Sony could actually be released in 2013 according to reports over at Ripten.  If so, I would expect it to be much later on in the year.  If you are looking to upgrade this year, you may have to settle for a WiiU - which isn't much of an upgrade.

The specific details stem from a lawsuit involving Activision and former developers for the Call of Duty franchise. The details of the lawsuit itself are not half as interesting as the details of a contract between publisher Activision and game developer Bungie Inc, the minds behind the blockbuster Halo series.
