Google buys up movie recommendation site Fflick for $10 mill Google has purchased Twitter movie recommendation service Fflick today for $10 million, with the deal expected to close by the end of the month.
Fflick uses Twitter "sentiment" to rate movies, showing positive and negative comments, as well as how many people are Tweeting about a certain film.

For example, on the front page is "The Green Hornet," which is showing an 81 percent "like" rating on 66,000 tweets.

By signing in with your own Twitter account, you can see comments from anyone in your own network.

Furthermore, you can use the service to buy tickets, add movies to your Netflix queue, and retweet any post you see.

It is unclear what Google will use the service for.

Anyone with programming skills or web development skills can cash in right now. A decent idea with proper marketing, SEO, and somebody is going to offer you a small fortune for it within 4yrs.
