Microsoft planning to acquire Nook Media [Rumor]

Microsoft planning to acquire Nook Media [Rumor]

In case you didn't know, Nook Media is a joint venture of Barnes & Noble and other notable investors which included Microsoft. Nook Media has a college textbook division, an online bookstore, an e-content publishing business, and it also includes the popular Nook devices of Barnes & Noble. It's worth noting that Microsoft previously invested $300 million along with a reported $305 million to own 17% of the new company.

So far Microsoft did not confirm TechCrunch's report. Furthermore, the document has reportedly revealed that Nook Media is planning to discontinue its Nook tablets by the end of its 2014 fiscal year in order to push Nook Media's wide content to third-party devices. This would be made possible through apps. TechCrunch says that it is not clear  whether the third-party tablets would be Microsoft’s own Windows 8 devices.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
