Redbox Enters The Netflix Dojo, Dips Fists in Glue and Broken Glass

Redbox Enters The Netflix Dojo, Dips Fists in Glue and Broken Glass

SAN RAFAEL, CA - AUGUST 14:  Movie titles are  displayed on a RedBox video rental kiosk August 14, 2009 in San Rafael, California.

Another year, another Netflix ($NFLX) killer – this time, the venerable vending machine powerhouse Redbox.

Eric Savitz at Barron’s Tech Trader Daily is blogging that in 2011, the parent company of Redbox, Coinstar ($CSTR), will have streaming movies on the web operational…

…the company is confident that “physical DVDs and Redbox kiosks will remain relevant for a very long time to come.” But he added that consumers have told the company they want a broader selection than the kiosks provide. “So, while we are confident in the future of DVDs, we believe an expanded offering via digital could be a natural evolution to augment our core business,” he said.

Many incredibly tough competitors have challenged Netflix (aka the hottest stock in the universe) to the blaring fanfare of trumpets and beating drums.  Each of these competitors has been sent sauntering away with its tail between its legs.

Redbox is looking at potential partnerships to get their service launched, so maybe this would be Amazon’s ($AMZN) chance to get in the game.  Maybe the reorganizing Blockbuster gets in Redbox’s good graces for a team-up.  Possibly a consortium of studios wants in, a la Hulu.  We shall see.

Epizyme - A Waiting Game

Reminder: Pharmboy is available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Epizyme was founded in 2007, and trying to create drugs to treat patient's cancer by focusing on genetically-linked differences between normal and cancer cells. Cancer areas of focus include leukemia, Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and breast cancer.  One of the Epizme cofounders, H. Robert Horvitz, won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2002 for "discoveries concerning genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death."

Before discussing the drug targets of Epizyme, understanding epigenetics is crucial to comprehend the company's goals.  

Genetic components are the DNA sequences that are 'inherited.'  Some of these genes are stronger than others in their expression (e.g., eye color).  Yet, some genes turn on or off due to external factors (environmental), and it is und...

Help One Of Our Own PSW Members

"Hello PSW Members –

This is a non-trading topic, but I wanted to post it during trading hours so as many eyes can see it as possible.  Feel free to contact me directly at jennifersurovy@yahoo.com with any questions.

Last fall there was some discussion on the PSW board regarding setting up a YouCaring donation page for a PSW member, Shadowfax. Since then, we have been looking into ways to help get him additional medical services and to pay down his medical debts.  After following those leads, we are ready to move ahead with the YouCaring site. (Link is posted below.)  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated; not only to help aid in his medical bill debt, but to also show what a great community this group is.

Thank you for you time!
