Online game maker King has had unexpected success with Candy Crush Saga. Now the company has hired J.P. Morgan according to The Wall Street Journal to prepare for an IPO. TechCrunch though has a report that says that this does not mean necessarily that King.com goes IPO. They just want to have the option. The failed IPO of Zynga is still a problem for an online game company IPO.
Social online games come and go. Draw Something was such a big hit that Zynga bought them for a lot of money and just recently they shut it down. King is going to release their next game. I guess King and investors will have a look at how well that game is going to be received. It is called Pet Rescue Saga.

The Sexiest Halloween Costumes of 2014
Halloween is approaching fast. Usually we feature first our annual Top Costumes for Geeks guide, but we stumbled over a new costume that inspired us to do a sexiest Halloween Costumes Guide first.
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.
