Blockbuster Offers Deal to Netflix Scorned

blkbuster60.jpg

It's no secret that Blockbuster is probably giddy with delight now that Netflix has enraged so many former customers. They are offering runaway subscribers a 30 day free trial with both movies by mail and unlimited in-store exchanges. Included in the deal is their game service, pre-release videos and Blu-ray titles. We expect them to announce a total VOD service for those who do not have On Demand devices. The move could perhaps save the beleaguered company from oblivion if they amass more fans.

Best Buy seems to be feeling the pinch in sales and will be concentration its efforts by improving its Marketplace. They have added several third party sellers to join them such as Buy.com, resulting in an "increased assortment of products, brands and price points."

You can bet that you will see a change as the holidays approach this year as they have promised about a third more products online.

Sony Lowers PS3 Price

codps3.jpg

Sony has lowered the price of its Playstation 3 to get more in the proverbial game. It seems that reduction has already moved the system to the top of game console sales at Amazon. With the 160GB model and the 320 GB PS3 cut by $50.00, get yours before the price starts to soar again during the holidays. A Call of Duty Bundle is also available .

Another move that will probably keep the company in the bright green is the deal to bring DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket to the PS3.

Affordable nüvi For The Lost

nuvi1300.jpg

It's hard to believe that it was only about a year ago that we finally invested in GPS to get our navigationally challenged selves a chance to not get lost when out and about but now most cars and smartphones come with them. But for those who have not yet admitted to their inferior driving skills, Garmin believes it can change your mind.

Their nüvi 1300 4.3" Widescreen Portable Navigator is pre-loaded with 48 states, millions of points of interest, pedestrian usability and public transit mode. And yes, you get those annoying turn-by-turn directions with text-to-speech. Suck it up and take the plunge for about half the price that we paid.

Pre-Order iSteve: The Book of Jobs Bio

stevejobs3.jpg

Steve Jobs always manages to stay a couple of steps ahead of everyone else but we found it really interesting that there is already a pre-order page for iSteve: The Book of Jobs, his authorized biography that won't come out before March 6, 2012. Maybe his recurring illness prompted the move, but there is a $20.00 price tag that comes with the book, about a third of the cost of the tome before its release.
