Samsung (SSNLF.PK) is down 6.9% in Seoul after losing big to Apple (AAPL). Much of Samsung’s $4.5B Q2 net profit was tied to smartphone sales, hence the risk of U.S. injunctions and less competitive products is being taken seriously. Still, some think Android (GOOG) can remain competitive even if it can’t use the software patents Samsung was declared to infringe, and others see Apple’s efforts to portray Samsung products as Apple clones giving Samsung a marketing boost. 6 comments!

5 Apps for the 2012 Olympics

Category : Business, Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — The biggest social media platforms have been around for previous Olympics, including the Beijing Summer Games of 2008 and the Vancouver Winter Games of 2010. However, some are calling the London Summer Games of 2012 the “Socialympics.”

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) even launched the Olympic Athletes’ Hub, a site to connect fans with Olympic athletes, past and present, through Twitter and Facebook streams, for the coming Games.

“We are at a dawn of a new age of sharing and connecting, and London 2012 will ignite the first conversational Olympic Games (between athletes and fans) thanks to social media platforms and technology,” said Alex Huot, head of social media for the IOC, in an email interview with ESPN Playbook. …

No Friend of Facebook

Category : Business, Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — Facebook has so many red flags waving I feel like I am at the opening of the Beijing Olympics.

The first issue is the administration of a $100 billion public company by a 28-year-old void of previous public executive experience. Are you nuts? I don’t care how smart he is, Wall Street is paved with unequivocally ingenious people who founder as CEO. There is a good reason why the first question asked in a job interview is, “What experience do you have?”

Usually a reply of “None” results in learning how the fryer gets cleaned, not an offering of regional manager. The first red flag is inexperience; when someone is new, wait until after the first major blunder to scrutinize his or her efficacy before investing. …

Twitter rolls out a major search overhaul. Key changes include search auto-complete, and the ability to search only tweets that come from followed accounts. The changes stand to make Twitter, whose search feature is widely used for tracking news and buzz, an even bigger thorn in Google’s (GOOG) side. Twitter has a deal to provide its content within Bing (MSFT) search results, but a similar deal with Google lapsed last year. Post your comment!

Facebook Proves It Has No Social Skills Whatsoever

Category : Business, Stocks

By Carol Kopp NEW YORK (Minyanville) — What’s the difference between Facebook’s top management and a gang of socially stunted hackers who disrupt 900 million email accounts just because they can?

Not a joke. The only difference is that Facebook management presumably is not trying to enrage, confuse, and inconvenience people, especially people who are their customers.

You see, Facebook has been unable to exploit the potentially lucrative business of “free” email, because nobody uses the Facebook email service. …

Apple Puts Yelp in Maps for iOS 6

Category : Stocks

NEW YORK (Trefis) — Apple is planning to include Yelp integration in its new Maps application in iOS 6. It will enable users to check in to different locations and businesses directly using the Yelp service on the Maps application, without the need to open the Yelp app.

By being the default check-in app for Maps on iOS, Yelp could see a significant increase in engagement and check-in activity following the integration, given the massive iOS user base and the significantly higher average internet and app usage among them.

Amazon Web Services (AMZN) witnesses a giant outage thanks to the storms that hit the East Coast last night. The outage affected Netflix (NFLX), Instagram, Pinterest, and many other clients. It’s the second time AWS has gone down in June, and, together with a Thursday Salesforce.com (CRM) outage, drives home the reliability concerns some enterprises still have about cloud services. The outage comes days after Google (GOOG) launched a rival cloud infrastructure platform. 5 comments!
