  • Walmart Launches Classified Listings

    Walmart has added a classified listings service to their site. Silicon Valley startup Oodle, which was founded in 2004, is powering the service. The listings are free, which means Walmart is likely doing the deal to generate page views and advertising impressions. They also now compete with both Craigslist and eBay-owned Kijiji. Walmart has a mixed history of success with Web businesses… Read More

    It seems that your local Wal-Mart is not, in fact, the best place to go to pick up an inexpensive Linux-powered desktop computer running gOS. The Everex gPC line — which our intrepid editor John Biggs called “the suck” with “a half-baked ‘Google’ OS” — will no longer be available for in-store purchase. Company spokesperson Melissa O’Brien… Read More

    [photopress:itunesno1.jpg,full,center] iTunes is on track to become the largest music retailer in the U.S., pipping Wal-Mart to the title. (I’ve never known anyone to buy popular music from Wal-Mart. Clearly I’m out of the mainstream.)

    Matt Cutts has a quick unboxing of the $200 gPC by Everex that’s been making news lately. As you might guess, it looks a lot like a "regular" computer in a box. It even comes with a modem. Remember modems? Unboxing the Everex $200 Linux Computer [Matt Cutts] Read More

  • Everex's gPC: A $199 PC with a half-baked "Google" OS


    Wal-mart just plotzed out the Everex Green gPC, a low-end machine with low-end specs running Ubuntu Linux and a version of Enlightenment that its creators called GOS. Some may say that this is the “Google PC” but it’s actually running a version of Linux specially tweaked to let you “launch” Google apps — still in the browser — from the task bar. The… Read More

  • Wal-Mart To Sen. John Edwards: No PS3 For You!


    So this is fun: In a statement from Wal-Mart today, former Senator John Edwards had a staffer contact the electronics manager in a Raleigh, North Carolina store to try and get his hands on a PlayStation 3. Problem was, later that night he reportedly told a story to people on a United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union-sponsored call that his son had ridiculed a classmate about his… Read More

  • Walmart preparing to offer movie downloads

    Reports are coming out that Walmart is gearing up to offer movie downloads in the coming months. The impact of the move on pricing could be big; Walmart sells almost half of the physical DVDs bought in the US and the company could be a major player in the increasingly crowded movies-on-demand space.
