Netflix says "Nevermind"

TL;DR: After causing a big stir, Netflix has axed the idea of spliting into two seperate companies and now will stay as just Netflix with streaming and dvd rentals.

This is probably due to Blockbuster's new Commercial marketing campaign. Why would you want to cause confusion when your rival company is looking for the stragglers from your business? Not to mention that Blockbuster is basically Netflix+Gamefly in one for double the price of both. Not to be picky though, it would be kind of convenient IF you had a still-standing blockbuster store near you for easy game/movie swapping.

Emp is gonna be pissed ... a company unpurged itself!

On topic though, I have a Blockbuster here in the town where the college is, but not where I reside. Same can be said for the town where my stepson attends college, but where we live there, no Blockbuster.

Sounds disguisting.
