Weekly Round-Up 6/13/2011

Most of the attention was about WWDC and Apple’s announcements although we should probably mention something about Groupon’s IPO Announcment:

And now a little bit about Groupon IPO plans to raise $750mm. Some highlights from filing:

  • 7,000 employees and 83 million subscribers in 43 countries
  • $714 mm in revenue up from $30mm the year before
  • With claims of a frothy valuation, not surprising to see All Things D report on the Groupon reporting “Smack-down” following the IPO announcement
Closing with a fun little conceptual hack worthy of a big Apple announcement week. This “invisible phone” uses hand gestures and a depth-aware camera to interface with your smartphone–essentially allowing it to sit in your pocket or purse.
