Netflix streamed over one billion hours of video in June

0 inShare Despite a few public missteps last year, Netflix doesn't appear to be slowing down — the internet video giant just announced that it streamed more than one billion hours of video this past June. This milestone was actually released by CEO Reed Hastings over his Facebook; in a post, Hastings congratulated Netflix's Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos "and his amazing content licensing team" for helping the company reach this milestone. Hastings also thinks that the upcoming Netflix orignal series House of Cards as well as the Netflix-exclusive fourth season of Arrested Development will help the company "blow these records away." It's hard to argue with Hastings — the company reportedly was the leader in online video revenue in 2011, and with traffic continuing to surge it may end up being the leader this year as well.

Apple shells out $60 million settlement for iPad trademark in China

Apple has agreed to pay $60 million to China-based Proview over the iPad trademark in China after numerous back-and-forths in court. Although Apple claims it has owned the iPad trademark in China since at least 2010, Proview won a series of Chinese courts decisions throughout 2011. Apple took the case higher up the chain and even battled Proview in the US for a while, but apparently decided to put the case to rest as of June 25.

RIM posts huge Q1 miss: First net loss in 8 years, BlackBerry 10 launch delayed, 5,000 jobs cut

Analysts anticipated another miss ahead of Research In Motion’s first-quarter earnings report on Thursday as sales continue to stall ahead of the struggling smartphone vendor’s first BlackBerry 10 smartphone launch, which is expected this October. RIM warned in late May that it would likely see an operating loss in the first fiscal quarter — its first net quarterly loss since fiscal 2004 — but the Street’s consensus ranged from a profit of $0.01 per share on $3.1 billion in sales to a net loss of $0.03 per share. The numbers are now in and RIM reported on Thursday that it lost $0.37 per share on revenue of $2.8 billion.
