Netflix video player
Your movie-loving Netflix subscriber can instantly download favorite flicks with the Roku Digital Video Player. "It's not the complete Netflix catalogue, but it's still the cheapest, easiest way to have access to thousands of movies and TV shows," says John Falcone, home theater editor at tech review site CNET.com ($100, roku.com).

My new Samsung TV and Blu Ray have wireless Netflix built in. All you do is queue em up on the lap top and they pop up on the big screen and you play them. Pause them, watch em again, whatever. As many as you want, whenever. 8 bucks and change a month. Enormous selection. Kind of sad not to be going down to the video store anymore. Watched all the Mony Pythons again, Best of Belushi from SNL (Samuai Chef, etc.) and all kinds of movies. Don't like the movie? Skip it and go to the next one. Its the future.... mm ps... I am looking forward to trampling some folks in the shopping stampede, though.... :)

Today I passed a Blockbuster. Sign said "CLOSING! EVERYTHING FOR SALE."

They have lasted longer than I thought they would.
Red Box $1 movies probably is hurting them too.
They have one on every corner it seems.

I am holding off on black friday, and looking for bigger bargains after New Year's.
My reasons? News like this:

===============================================================
Mortgage delinquencies hit another record in 3Q
Nov 17, 6:50 AM (ET)

By EILEEN AJ CONNELLY

NEW YORK (AP) - The pace at which people fell behind on their mortgages slowed during the summer for the third consecutive quarter, but the overall delinquency rate hit another record, a new report shows.
For the three months ended Sept. 30, 6.25 percent of U.S. mortgage loans were 60 or more days past due, according to credit reporting agency TransUnion. That's up 58 percent from 3.96 percent a year ago.
Being two months behind is considered a first step toward foreclosure, because it's so hard to catch up with payments at that point.

- In Nevada, the rate reached 14.5 percent, up from 7.7 percent a year ago.
- In Florida, the rate was 13.3 percent, up from 7.8 percent last year.
- In Arizona, the rate hit 10.4 percent, up from 5.5 percent in 2008.
- In California, the rate jumped to 10.2 percent, from 5.8 percent last year.

it really is a shame - what idiots these politicians are. A typical 1950s housewife would handle money better. "Pntiac Stadium: cost more than 55 million to build, and recently sold for $583,000."
