We know Samsung’s been ramping up its home entertainment arsenal. Now, recent intel acquired by the folks at SmartHouse suggests that the Korean outfit’s about to dive into deeper waters, after reportedly striking a deal in Australia. The pact, that’s yet to become official, would give the manufacturer access to the plethora of films available from your favorite blue-and-yellow video store, which could then be streamed to your beloved Galaxy handset or Tab, as well as Sammy-branded Smart TVs, Blu-ray players and laptops. Furthermore, the report claims Samsung’s got a friendly billing system in the works that’d allow easy access to the content on your devices. It’s expected to hit US and Euro shores “as early as September.” Until then you’ll have to stick with the good ol’ Redbox kiosks.

Sovereign debt and banking issues aside, the economy of Europe still looks like it must be in recession.

Every country has reported a sub-50 PMI today.

This map from Markit is fantastic.

The US Consumer Has Saved The Day

Source: http://www.businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-day-construction-of-gdp-over-time-2011-10

This is a big, beautiful chart of GDP since 2007 put together by Doug Short.

In addition to showing GDP, it also makes it very easy to see the components, and how they have broken down each quarter.

Two things stand out in the current quarter.

First is that the consumer — the blue bar — really stepped it up in a big way, fueling the lift.

The other thing that stands out is that government consumption, purple, stopped being a drag on things.
