20:04 EDTSSNLFFacebook virtual reality initiative picks up speed with $99 Samsung device
Thursday's Oculus Connect 2 event saw numerous announcements from Facebook (FB) virtual reality subsidiary Oculus VR, including content deals with major media players as well as a $99 VR headset developed in conjunction with Samsung (SSNLF). CONTENT OFFERINGS: The virtual reality firm will be partnering with Fox (FOX, FOXA) and Lionsgate (LGF) to bring more than 100 films to the Oculus Store at launch. Additionally, Netflix (NFLX), Amazon's (AMZN), TiVo (TIVO), and Hulu -- the joint venture of Disney (DIS), Fox, and Comcast's (CMCSA, CMCSK) NBCUniversal -- will be launching apps for the company's virtual reality products, bringing web TV and streaming content to early adopters of the new technology. MAINSTREAM DEVICE: Samsung joined with Oculus to reveal a new $99 "Gear VR" headset on Thursday. Standing in contrast to Oculus' own pricier devices, the Samsung headset will rely on the company's Galaxy line of smartphones to power its virtual reality experiences. Note that a major point of contention regarding the "blockbuster" potential -- or lack thereof -- of VR technology is whether consumers will be willing to pay upwards of $399 for the Oculus gadgets. Samsung's Gear VR tends more towards what Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has called "medium immersion" devices, potentially allaying investor concern over adoption rates with its more attractive point of entry. PRICE ACTION: Facebook shares closed higher by 0.5% and continued to rise in after-hours trading, up another 0.2%.

11:21 EDTSSNLFJury says Pendrell patents not infringed on by Samsung, Google products
Pendrell announced earlier, that on September 23, a jury in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas found that certain claims of five digital rights management patents asserted by Pendrell (PCO) subsidiary, ContentGuard Holdings, against Samsung Electronics (SSNLF) and Google (GOOG) are valid, but that Samsung products and Google products accused in the lawsuit do not infringe the asserted patents. ContentGuard is assessing the jury's findings and evaluating its options to challenge the verdict. ContentGuard's claims against Samsung and Google are part of a larger lawsuit filed by ContentGuard against several companies that have not paid for a license to use ContentGuard's patented digital rights management solutions, including Apple (AAPL), DirecTV, HTC, Huawei and Motorola Mobility. The jury verdict does not impact ContentGuard's August 2015 settlement and license agreement with (AMZN); nor does ContentGuard believe the jury verdict will impact or delay ContentGuard's upcoming November trial against Apple. Shares of Pendrell are down 35.34% in morning trading.

Atmel (ATML) reached an agreement Sunday to be acquired by Dialog Semiconductor in a deal valued at approximately $4.6B, or the equivalent of $10.42 per Atmel share.

Note also China's apparent desire to control companies in the space, evidenced by state-owned firms China Electronics Corp. and Tsinghua's respective pursuits of Atmel and Micron (MU).
