LeBron James and Kevin Love have had a successful partnership overall, but it hasn’t always been easy for Love. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst said on Bill Simmons’ podcast that Love has left games “beleaguered and beaten down” because of James or the pressure of playing with him. According to Windhorst, Love thinks it’s all worthwhile to compete for championships with James. Kevin Love’s transition from being the No. 1 guy with the Minnesota Timberwolves to a LeBron James sidekick with the Cleveland Cavaliers hasn’t always been the easiest. Love has at times struggled to play without the ball as much, reduced to being a spot-up threat rather than posting or facing up and playmaking from the elbows, as he did with the Wolves. In their first year together, James famously sub-tweeted Love, saying he needed to learn to “fit in,” and seemingly left him out of … [Read more...] about NBA insider provides eye-opening quote about the sacrifices Kevin Love has made to play with LeBron James

NEW YORK (AP) — U.S. stocks are moving lower Tuesday as industrial and energy companies and banks decline, but a gain for technology companies helped the market narrow an earlier loss.

TheFunnyMan (Posts: 77; Member since: 26 Jan 2011) Can you really blame Verizon for it, though? They are, if nothing else, a business. And I am sure the NFL wants their cut, too, being another business. Besides, if you already can watch the games, you dont need to pay for the ability to watch live games. If you cant watch the games, $10 a month is WAY cheaper that paying for … [Read more...] about Comments for : Verizon offering NFL Mobile app as new season gets ready to kick off
Proving that Apple is the exception at the moment, Nintendo has published its financial results for the final quarter of 2011, which unfortunately saw a 61% drop in profits and a 40% fall in sales revenue too.The company also re-evaluated its projected sales for the Wii and 3DS, cutting them from 12 million to 10 million, and 16 million to 14 million respectively. Bad news all round, especially when you consider the 3DS had an early price drop last year.It wasn’t all negative however, as the president of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, has confirmed that the Wii U console will be going on sale in the USA, Europe and Japan in time for the 2012 holiday sales period. With Black Friday often symbolizing the beginning of the Christmas rush in the US, a November date is possible.However, will the Wii U be the savior Nintendo needs it to be? From a consumer viewpoint, many either won’t know anything about it at all, or will be scrabbling around for what little information Nintendo has so … [Read more...] about Nintendo says the Wii U will be out in 2012, but can it boost the company’s falling profits?
The Galaxy Nexus has finally arrived in the United States after showing up in places like Europe and Hong Kong several weeks ago. This is a Samsung smartphone running the very latest and greatest version of Android, Ice Cream Sandwich. And there are no factory-installed tweaks to the OS either -- it's straight Android, no mixer.Obviously this is good news for those who've been excited to see the latest Google superphone firsthand, but the timing for this launch is very unusual. It arrived on shelves Thursday -- right at the top of holiday shopping crazy season. In fact, by the time this thing went on sale in the U.S., crazy season may have already peaked.So why the delay? Actually, it's not really a delay, since Verizon never promised a specific release date until the day before it actually came out. But the timing is still very odd. One guess is that it all comes back to Google Wallet, the company's new mobile payment technology. Verizon happens to be a major backer of competing … [Read more...] about WEEKLY RECAP Verizon and Google Enter Holiday Party Late and Sulky
