    Greetings from a Japan . I have a made for Japan Dell PC / Windows 7 with Windows Media Player as well as Cyberlink Power DVD pre-installed .

    SlySoft Inc. is a software company registered in the Carribean country of Antigua and Barbuda.

Its product line includes tools like AnyDVD, AnyDVD HD, Clone CD, CloneDVD mobile, Virtual Clone Drive, Game Jackal, and Game Jackal Enterprise. With no doubt, the company's most known product is AnyDVD, a device driver used by many movie, game, and software piracy groups (and even home users) to...

    Dish Network Corp plans to close 300 Blockbuster stores in the United States in the coming weeks and could lay off as many as 3,000 employees, a move that comes days after the DVD rental firm's UK unit went into administration. Dish is trying to shed unprofitable Blockbuster outlets as online retailers like Amazon.Com Inc and download sites like Apple Inc's iTunes eat away at Blockbuster's business model. The potential job cuts represent about 40 percent of Blockbuster's U.S. workforce of 7,300 people. "We continue to see value in the Blockbuster brand and we will continue to analyze store-level profitability...

    A conservative, California-based filmmaker said this week that his company is distributing more than a million free copies of a conspiracy-laden DVD that claims much of what the public knows about President Barack Obama's early life is false. The movie — called "Dreams From My Real Father" — began appearing in Central Florida mailboxes sometime last week. It is the work of Joel Gilbert, a director whose other movies have focused on everything from militant Islam to Bob Dylan to Elvis Presley. He said the DVD is being sent to swing states, including Florida and Ohio, but would not say...

    Dinesh D’Souza’a Obama 2016 is out on DVD.  It has no special features, but I would recommend purchasing it if you didn’t see the movie.  During its theatrical release earlier this year it earned a stunning 33,000,000 which is fantastic box office for a documentary.  Here is my review which I originally posted on September 2 after seeing the film in a theater:My family and I went to see the documentary Obama 2016 yesterday.  The documentary is based on Dinesh D’Souza’s book The Roots of Obama’s Rage which posits that the key to understanding Obama is that he is motivated by...

    Washington, D.C. (December 8, 2011) -- Verizon may be planning to launch a service next spring that would compete directly with Netflix and could involve a partnership with Redbox, according to several news reports. Reuters reported Tuesday that Verizon was negotiating agreements with media companies for the right to stream their content. The wire service added that Verizon was interested in launching a streaming offering in areas outside of its FiOS TV markets. For instance, if you could not subscribe to FiOS where you live, you could subscribe to Verizon's Netflix-like streaming service. And TechCrunch, the AOL tech site, reports...

    Redbox is making an announcement about its prices today, and we want to make sure that you hear it from us first. Starting on Monday, October 31, the daily rental charge for DVDs will change to $1.20 a day.* The price change is due to rising operating expenses, including new increases in debit card fees.

In order to make the transition easier, Redbox will discount the first day of all online DVD rentals to $1.00 from 10/31 through...

Dear xxxxxxx, It is clear that for many of our members two websites would make things more difficult, so we are going to keep Netflix as one place to go for streaming and DVDs. This means no change: one website, one account, one password…in other words, no Qwikster. While the July price change was necessary, we are now done with price changes. The email goes on to advertise what neat things they now offer, etc. etc. Looks like the feedback from the general public caused someone high up in the ranks at Netflix...

    Since the moment Sarah Palin stepped on the national stage, her followers from O4P, C4P, and Team Sarah (to name a few) have been working in the background to promote her, defend her, and lay the foundations for a 2012 POTUS run. With the DVD release on October 4th, Palin supporters have an opportunity to sway voters to her cause. So, fellow Palanistas, if you have an "Undefeated" movie night, have it listed.
