Warner would really like you to upgrade your DVD collection over to Blu-ray.Warner would really like you to upgrade your DVD collection over to Blu-ray.

Do you have a whole bunch of Warner movies still festering on DVD? If those DVDs happen to be in their small list of seventy-five titles - you can upgrade them over to that fancy new Blu-ray format... for a small fee. What, did you think it was free? Silly human.

Cablevision, Time Warner and Comcast open up wi-fi to each other's customers.Cablevision, Time Warner and Comcast open up wi-fi to each other's customers.

This is very good news (and quite unexpected also) for customers of any of the aformentioned companies in the above headline. You can now take advantage of any of their wifi whilst traveling just so long as you are paying customer. Not too shabby, guys - not too shabby at all.

Blockbuster strikes deal with Warner Brothers to rent movies on release day.Blockbuster strikes deal with Warner Brothers to rent movies on release day.

Well, this is certainly a little strange. This deal is not currently available to Netflix and RedBox users - meaning you have to wait quite a bit before seeing new releases from Warner before you can rent them. But for Blockbuster members, you can rent their movie the day it's released on DVD. Okay then.

This means that when a popular Warner Bros. movie comes out on DVD for sale at your local Target or Best Buy, you must wait another month before you can get it delivered to your door or desktop via Netflix.

Say goodbye to the that blue triangle you've grown so familiar with over the years. Say hello to various works of clipart instead... with the letters A O L (and don't forget the period) draped over them.
