When I was a kid, I never would have envisioned people in the then-future being fascinated by "portable telephones". Back then, I always thought telephones were rather boring.

No worries. I don't have a Facebook account either. Guess I'm getting too old as well. The only "social media" stuff I do is through message boards like this.

The only "social media" I remember from when I was a kid/teenager, were the individuals who were into CB radio. The individuals I knew personally who were really hardcore into CB, seemed to be very similar to the type of people (in behavior) who would hang out on later internet chat servers like IRC, aol chat rooms, muds, etc ...

I never understood the appeal of early internet "social media" stuff like IRC, muds, etc ... The first time I logged on to irc, I thought it looked like an online text version of CB radio on steroids. (ie. Too many users writing stuff filling the screen, which resembled how "Beavis and Butthead" talked).

(Though at least it was a lot less expensive than buying all five individual season sets separately).


After watching through "House of Cards" awhile ago, I heard that "Damages" was very similar in spirit. It portrays a similar nastiness and dysfunction of the characters, and the trail of destruction left behind.

(Previously I thought generic lawyer shows were a joke or even more boring than generic cop shows).

When I was younger, I never would have thought that I would be captivated by tv shows which portray human nastiness and all kinds of skullduggery as a thing to strive for (or as a "virtue") by white collar protagonists.

Box office power looks fairly even the rest of the year, so I think Blu-ray's YoY (now at 6.6%) will continue to fall to the lower single digits, if not further, by the end of the year. I wouldn't be surprised if year end growth was negative.

EST and digital appear to be picking up steam.

Default Blockbuster Video-Rental Chain Will Shut Remaining U.S. Stores

Blockbuster Video-Rental Chain Will Shut Remaining U.S. Stores

Quote:
Blockbuster LLC, the video-rental company now owned by Dish Network Corp. (DISH), will close its remaining 300 U.S. stores, ending an era for a retail chain that was once a hallmark of shopping centers across the country.

Blockbuster will shut the outlets by early January and also discontinue its DVD-by-mail service by the middle of next month, Englewood, Colorado-based Dish said today in a statement. The company will keep the licensing rights to the Blockbuster brand and use it with Dish services. It also has a video-streaming product called Blockbuster On Demand.

Dish, which acquired the chain out of bankruptcy in April 2011, had already divested Blockbuster’s international assets, including operations in the U.K. and Scandinavia. The company has been gradually shutting down the 1,700 stores it acquired. When Blockbuster was owned by Viacom Inc. (VIAB) in 2004, it operated about 9,000 locations -- before streaming video services such as Netflix Inc. (NFLX) devastated the industry.

“This is not an easy decision, yet consumer demand is clearly moving to digital distribution of video entertainment,” Dish Chief Executive Officer Joseph Clayton said in the statement. “We continue to see value in the Blockbuster brand, and we expect to leverage that brand as we continue to expand our digital offerings.”

Totally expected. I knew when they acquired Blockbuster that they did so to buy the Blockbuster name. There could have been no expectations of making any profits from the stores as a whole.

I know ive been out of it for a bit. But have you guys noticed how small the dvd section is this year at costco and Sam's club? Maybe its too soon or i forget. Also noticed a dvd/digital copy with no Bluray title. Thats was pretty telling. Never saw a title with a digital copy and no Bluray. At least I don't remember seeing one.

Seems like a total loss for Dish. They are even ditching disc-by-mail. "Blockbuster On Demand" has zero market share.

Checking online for 5 minutes...It appears that after the last BB closes in January, the nearest video rental store to me is 32.7 miles away. In other words, nonexistent.

That leaves Netflix and Redbox as my only 2 rental options, AFAIK.

It's been going on for awhile

At the local costcos, the dvd section seems to be getting smaller and smaller with its floor space being replaced with video games discs.

I've noticed it too. Probably telling of a reduced role disc giving will be this holiday season (and to make room for more games because of the console launch).

There existed a few older dvd titles which came packaged with a digital copy on a separate second disc, without a bluray. The ones I have, seemed to require some form of online authentication to view the digital copy. (The video files on the extra disc were encrypted).
