Walmart eBooks Service
Saw that WalMart had entered the ebook business yesterday when searching out an eBook via an internet search.


The audible/ebook I was looking for was $10.00 less expensive on Amazon.
$10.00 off first purchase via Wal-Mart made them the same.
WMart is going to have to be more competitive on their pricing though.
Not seeing prices I would want to spend.
In the past did we receive monthly updates to Holidays Toys and Games?
Searched via my notifications from Amazon and don't see monthly notifications.
Received another today that I qualify.
Just seems early to receive this many notifications.

From the below linked article:
"There’s a 70-year-old antitrust settlement in place that could halt the move: Film studios have previously been barred from getting into the theater business, Bloomberg reported.
Amazon spent around $4.5 billion on original programming last year, according to Recode.
The settlement stems from a 1940s Supreme Court case that ended the old Hollywood practice of film studios owning the theaters that showed their flicks.

However, there has been discussion of challenging the decree, part of a wide effort by the Justice Department to review antitrust laws.

“It’s very possible that the Paramount decree gets overturned,” David Miller, an analyst with Imperial Capital LLC, told Bloomberg. “It will be interesting to see if Amazon could be the first to test the new rules.”

Bezos is cruising for an anti-trust lawsuit.

Similar things at shows. Sales are slumping because midterm elections and all of the sky is falling ads on tv. Yet, some vendors are perplexed as to why sales are in a slump. Happens every time, like clockwork.

My fees are paid through PayPal also and I got both messages. After I figured out I didn't owe anything, I just ignored it.
I'm a Mattis fan-girl.
I'm not sure that Bezos is more powerful, just better connected.
Received this email this afternoon from eBay.

Honestly, I do understand.
We have the main hub and every other television has a really small black box (not much bigger than the box that a new men's wallet might come in). I can't complain coz I can start a movie in one room and continue watching it in another room. I can bounce around the house all day like that if I wanted.
We had Dish network ages ago and loved it.
Even though central FL is the lightning capital of the world.
We only lost the satellite once through 4 hurricanes and it was for 30 minutes.

Wow! What small black boxes.
And I do prefer the ability to watch from room to room..
Lord knows these brain cells of mine neeeeeed continuity.
