Boxee got bought by Samsung this week, and announced that it would be closing down the Boxee Cloud DVR's cloud DVR feature. So that's done. Both Samsung and HTC disappointed investors, albeit in very different ways, and Motorola's next big play got some early details. Ratings agency Moody's has placed Royal Bank of Scotland's credit ratings on review for downgrade after Britain's finance ministry said it was considering breaking up the bank. The government, which holds an 81 percent stake, has appointed Rothschild to examine whether to transfer RBS's remaining toxic loans into a so-called 'bad bank' leaving the 'good bank' better placed to lend. Japanese consumer electronics firm Panasonic Corp will buy up to 13 percent of Gorenje, one of the biggest household appliance makers in Eastern Europe, as it aims to tap growing demand in the region.
