    Warner's Strategy Revealed: Close Eyes, Pretend It's 2002

    When’s the last time you were at a Blockbuster? For me, it’s been a few years. And it’s been several years since I was going regularly.

  • Red2Blu: Swap those HD DVDs for Blu-ray discs from WB

    Well isn’t this a sweet promo from Warner Bros to promote Blu-ray and attempt to eliminate the remaining HD DVD inventory. The trade-in program is a bit weird, though.
