Facebook IPO: Zynga Generates 12% of Our Revenue and We Need Them

Facebook generated $3.71 billion in sales last year; some $445 million of that came from its partnership with Zynga. Facebook made $1.97 billion in 2010. 

With Facebook’s growing revenue, you can surely expect Zynga to follow and do the same. Social is the new way to game.

Microsoft To Ditch “Microsoft Points”? Oh, Please Let It Be True.

24 Jan

For anyone who’s somehow managed to avoid Microsoft’s silly-ass points system, here’s the idea: instead of buying content with, you know, money, you buy content with Microsoft Points. Points… which you buy with money.

Imagine you’ve gone to the store, and you want to buy 3 pineapples. You take them to the counter, and the guy at the register says “Great! That’ll be 7 bloo-blops.”

“What? I don’t have any bloo-blops. I only have dollars. Can I just give you dollars?”

“No. You have to give me bloo-blops. Fortunately, I have this pack of 10 bloo-blops right here.”

“..But I thought you said I only needed 7 bloo-blops?”

“You do. But I only sell them in packs of 10. Don’t worry! You’ll have 3 bloo-blops left over to buy anything you want!”

“Oh, okay. What can I buy with 3 bloo-blops?”

“Nothing.”

See? Garbage.
