News Corp has confirmed it’s trying to sell its former Jamba mobile content unit, after announcing it’s writing off some of the value of the group.

COO Chase Carey told investment analysts on Wednesday about Jamba: “We are pursuing a process to potentially sell that. We prefer to build businesses than buying them.

Berlin Brandenburg Bike

It’s a route planning website for bicycle drivers with lots of interesting features.
