Walmart game-trade kiosks

You scan the game’s barcode, and the machine tells you its trade-in value. If you decide to sell the game, you have to put the disc into the hardware directly. “Once a disc is inserted into the kiosk, the disc is spun up, identified and evaluated for damage,” Rudy explained. “The kiosk is also able to tell if the disc is burned, is a CD or is an old AOL advertising disc and would reject it. If the disc is unidentifiable or does not match what the user stated, there will be a screen that advises the user that the disc did not match and the disc will be returned.

This movie is intense. I would agree with at least one reviewer in calling it a masterpiece.

Netflix Value Proposition

mascarah:

I am interested to know what people’s average cost per movie “rental” is? For example, since January 1, 2008, I have watched 41 movies via Netflix and I have the $13.99 per 2-movies-at-a-time plan. So I’ve paid about $2.10 per movie including tax. I wonder what $$ per movie most people come in around? Any takers?

I was watching all of The Wire and now, all of LOST on the three per week unlimited plan since April but I’m going to either quit or cut back to one at a time unlimited soon. It’s not that I don’t like LOST or the occasional movie I order.

I’ve been sitting on Battle Royale for almost a week and LOST is OK… I just don’t have much time to watch because I’m finally starting Plate Show (first show segment this week) and I have so many tasks to take care of in preparation (finishing the web site, planning shows, booking guests, etc.) that there is little time to  watch a DVD—or even to SLEEP for that matter!

My cost per “rental” from Netflix is 94¢ per DVD since April when I decided to max out on watching these shows and switched to that plan. I’ve watched 54 DVDs (almost all Wired and LOST series discs, usually a whole disk at a time and sometimes two in one night) in these three months. It’s no wonder I’m burned out and needed to start doing something else, right?
