Is Facebook trying to buy Opera?

The new rumor of the week is coming from the Facebook camp and apparently they are interested in buying Opera in an attempt to make their very own web browser. Opera has a very good web browser and claims to have around 200 Million users worldwide which could make it a good target if Facebook is actually looking into creating their own web browser. Pocket-Lint has the story and I'd assume if there is any truth to this rumor we will be seeing a ton of more news hitting the wire as pretty much anything Facebook does anymore generates a ton of interest.

 

A Facebook browser that would allow you keep up to date with your social life from in-built plug-ins and features on the menu bar could be on the cards. Pocket-lint has heard from one of its trusted sources that the social networking giant is looking to buy Opera Software, the company behind the Opera web browser.

According to our man in the know, the company could be about to expand into the browser space to take on the likes of Google, Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla and now even Yahoo, who has recently launched its own browser.

 

 

 


How much should Facebook stock trade for?

The big debate on the Facebook IPO was mainly focused around how much Facebook was really worth. Obviously the $100+ Billion dollar evaluation was pretty optimistic and the big stock plunge was a result, but now the question is being asked, how much is Facebook really worth? Marketwatch takes a look at Facebook and its competition and figures that at this point in time Facebook is worth nowhere near what its being traded at and is valuing it more at $13.80 per share (instead of the $38 dollar price it debuted at).

Rather than endlessly rehashing the events that have taken place over the last week, it is this question that investors should be asking. Surprisingly, however, few are doing so.

And yet, courtesy of a just-released study, calculating a fair price for Facebook’s stock isn’t as difficult as it might otherwise seem.

Maybe they are onto something, at time of posting on Friday, Facebook's stock was down 3.6% already....


People are mad at Mark Zuckerburg

I posted up a story yesterday about how Mark Zuckerburg made a cool $1.1 Billion dollars by selling stock at the peak just after Facebook's IPO last week. Well, as you could probably imagine, people are upset about this move (which made him an extra $111 Million dollars) and are now suing Facebook, the banks that organized the IPO, and Mark Zuckerburg himself. The Independent has more on this story and the flood of lawsuits that are now following the Facebook IPO debacle.

 

The anger surrounding the sharp decline in the value of Facebook shares deepened yesterday when investors who have lost millions discovered that its founder apparently saved more than £110m by selling early.

 

Mark Zuckerberg, the social network's founder, sold shares in the company worth £720m on Friday, the day it floated on New York's Nasdaq stock market. But the price plummeted soon afterwards, from the $38 a share (£23.95) at which Mr Zuckerberg sold his stock. The price difference meant Mr Zuckerberg saved £111m by getting out early.


Software we use (but hate using it)

It must be Friday because the "Best of, Worst of, or Top 10" lists are hitting the news bucket. Today's list comes courtesy of PCMag and they've come up with the "Top 10 pieces of software that we use but hate". Not to spoil the surprise, but yes, Facebook and iTunes made the list.

 Many of us spend a large chunk of our day on the computer. So, when you add up all that time—at home, at school, at work, and on commutes—it's not surprising that we occasionally get frustrated with something on our laptops or desktops. No system is perfect (no, not even a Mac), nor is any peripheral or gadget. And don't get us started on apps and OSes. Actually, let's do sound off.


Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus 16GB

BundleWe have just taken a look at the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus Tablet.  This tablet packs in a dual-core 1.2GHz Samsung Exynos CPU that powers the 7" 1024x600 screen.  This is the WiFi only version is quiet affordable at a MSRP of $349.  There are a couple of issues though so make sure to take a look and find out all the details.

For those of you that are Android fanboys and fangirls, the Samsung Galaxy Tablet runs Honeycomb 3.2.  We have the 16GB version on our bench, but if you need more you can insert a microSD card as it has a slot for that on the side.  The tablet claims up to 8 hrs of battery usage - mind you the more you use it the less battery life (and intense applications and games will make it drain faster).


Thursday Case Collection



Zuckerburg sells shares

When Facebook went public last week everyone was interested to find out just how much money Mark Zuckerburg was going to make as a result. According to security filings from Facebook, Mark Zuckerburg sold 30.2 Million shares of Facebook for $37.58 and walked away with a cool $1.13 Billion dollars. One of Facebook's directors (Peter Thiel) also sold a few shares and made himself $633 million bucks. Both of these guys should now be able to afford that vacation they were saving up for and might have enough left over to go on a shopping spree. MarketWatch has all the details.

Facebook Inc. FB +0.41% Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg has sold 30.2 million shares and director Peter Thiel has sold 16.8 million shares of the social-networking company, according to securities filings published late Tuesday.
