Amazon Free VOD and Xmas MP3s


Amazon has begun to offer a free VOD when you order one of their movies. The deal is good for hundreds of Blu-ray and DVD titles. We expect this is their latest move to compete with both Walmart and Sears, as the two companies have lowered their prices on discs to get your holiday business. Amazon is also offering a free Christmas MP3 Download daily until December 25.

MDV GPS System Incorporates Audio/Video


Now that GPS is often available in cell phones, one wonders about the future of companies that offer them. JVC and Kenwood got together to create the MDV-313 that not only features car navigation, but offers a DVD player, TV tuner and USB iPod support. To be released in Japan first, it remains to be seen if other manufacturers decide to incorporate other features in their products.

SanDisk Sansa Clip Plus MP3 Player


We love advanced technology. Most known for their SD cards, SanDisk also ventures out into the music world with their Sansa Clip Plus MP3 Player. Storage of the 2.2 x 1.4 x .06" is immense considering its size. It will hold up to 1000 songs, 2400 photos or 12 hours of video on its 4 GB memory, expandable with memory cards, of course. lt also features a digital FM tuner with 40 presets, a rechargeable battery that will last up to 15 hours, a built-in clip and a price that won't break the bank.

Blockbuster to Peddle Movies on SD cards


In an almost never ending effort to keep up with those other guys, Blockbuster, teamed with NCR, has decided to rent movies on SD cards that can then be played back on mobile phones and TVs equipped with readers. Each will cost $1.99 and the user keeps the card, although it will expire after a certain date. Of course, you still have to travel to the kiosk to get the card. We think BB should try a new approach, say better advertising or cheaper rentals.
