I admit I haven't written in a while, but here's a more interesting story than the political cess that's been depressing me lately. Amazon is buying out Audible.com for $300M. I've been an Audible.com subscriber for years and I've been buying from Amazon.com since the mid-90's, so this is an interesting merger to me. Amazon's recommendation engine and related electronic materials will be a welcome addition to the always-good-quality Audible books and podcasts.
Warner has decided to go exclusively to the Blu-Ray camp. Since I bought Playstation 3 systems for Blu-Ray movie support, I'm hoping this signals the coming end of the high-definition disc format war.
Now we need Paramount and Universal to come over to the Blu side, and we want New Line to put The Lord of the Rings out.
