  • Qwikster is a subsidiary of Netflix formed in 2011 to operate the company’s legacy DVD-by-mail service.

    The 2011 f8 happened on September 22, 2011. Facebook introduced ‘Timeline’ that showed a history of user’s activity on their profile and also a broader version of ‘Open Graph’.

  • “The New 52” is the name given by DC Comics to a substantive relaunching of their fictional setting, the DC Universe, and with it a renumbering of 52 titles from #1 again. Touted as a large publishing event following the conclusion of the “Flashpoint” crossover storyline, DC’s relaunch entails changes to both the publishing format and fictional universe to entice new readers. Publishing changes include same day release of physical comics with digital platforms, all DC Universe titles being cancelled or restarted at a new issue 1, the former Wildstorm imprint being absorbed into the greater DC Universe, and new titles being released to bring the number of ongoing series being published on a monthly basis up to 52. A number of in universe changes are intended to make characters more modern and accessible, though the scope of the changes varies from character to character.

    Star Wars: The Complete Blu-ray Saga will feature all six live-action Star Wars feature films utilizing the highest possible picture and audio presentation.
