This mirrors the trouble theaters are having. Punk-ass kids don't watch anything that lasts longer than 30 minutes or costs more than free.

Netflix had it's run. It's done.

They need to renegociate with studios and they don't like losing blu ray and DVD sales.

Plus a whole buncha others online wanna sell streaming.

N.J. cuts bond sale after Gov. utters 'bankrupt'


Health care spending “will bankrupt” the state unless it requires workers to pay more for medical coverage, Mr. Christie said. New Jersey will spend $4.3 billion on health insurance this year, and that cost will rise 40% within four years, Mr. Christie, a first-term Republican, said at the town-hall meeting.

“Mr. Christie made a rookie mistake,” Mr. Pietronico said. “The market is very sensitive to the word ‘bankrupt.'”


LOL at that last line!!

If only he would BK that POS state, so a good comparison with LiberalLand IL can be made.

NJ's not bankrupt, the politicos in Trenton just haven't figured out a way to rob it's taxpaying citizens blind.

Oh well, IL is now the shining light on the hill.

They should put a little better technology in they're sorters. Check the coin dates and pull the silver..  and the copper..

My thoughts exactly. One would think there is an untapped silver/copper mine in that model.

Wouldn't call a terrible business model like CSTR a barometer for anything. Probably dying because people are flocking to AppleTV and streaming Netflix. Seems like another great indicator for those two stocks.

How 'bout ROVI? A way to play all of the above?

Sure Harry...I'm sure 92 million pirate dowloads for the top 10 alone didn't have anything to do with it. Bottom line is that Apple and Netflix WILL get hurt by piracy.

I'll second that Harry.  IIRC Read sometime back during the recession 2 years ago, people were spending all their loose change rather than stuffing it in their home piggy banks which probably benefited CSTR. There was an over abundance of coins being cashed in.  It would seem logical that 18 months into recovery, folks are back to keeping their coins at home and don't need to spend every nickle & dime.  JMVHO

Harry's beastiality films have finally taken hold - go get em Mr Hands. Or even more likely, they are all busy with their kindle and iphone book readers, nobody watches television, its all about the books.

I can hear Bennys "battle bots" gearing up to take care of this pesky dip.

It costs $7/month to stream as much as you want from Netflix. Coinstar $1/movie. You do the math.

well the studios up and FUCKED redbox; it's as simple as that.

They didn't want anyone selling their titles for less than the MASSIVE prices that the studios believe their derivative, trite, hackneyed, monotonous, unimaginative, formulaic dogshit is worth.

I mean, seriously, HOW MANY fucking stupid comedies with the same mfin plot can Adam Sandler's little yid ass be in where he magically gets a supersmokin hot blonde nordic girl?

Spot on, spot on.  The studios truly think that they can command and control how much money people will pay for their movies and services.  When you can go and see the same movies and series online for free.  And oh yea Adam Sandler keeps the same formula for his plotted movies.  For once I would like to see him change up, grow up and actually do a serious movie or another plot.

Punch Drunk Love was definitely different, but it didn't do so hot.  Sandler doesn't deserve the credit for the creativity, but why fault him for sticking with what works?

Isn't it funny how often the male yid gets the nordic girl in tons of comedies and coming of age teen movies.

Guess the model of male nordic getting female yid just wouldn't sell movies.
