Volkswagen Beetle Fitted With A Japanese Bathtub In Its Backseat

If there’s one thing we know people don’t need wen they’re driving around is a bathtub in the backseat as making abrupt stops could certainly cause a burn or two to the back of your neck if the water is as hot as we’d expect it to be. But that’s exactly what Volkswagen Group Japan have built as they have built a Volkswagen Beetle that replaces its backseat with a Japanese-style bathtub. (more…)

    Verizon Moto X Price Down To $99.99 On Contract

    Verizon Moto X Price Down To $99.99 On Contract

    Motorola announced the first flagship smartphone it created as a Google company, Moto X, back in August. On August 29th, the largest U.S. mobile carrier started offering it for $199.99 on contract. Initially, the carriers which offered the Moto X sold it for $199.99 with a two year contract. Soon after its release, it was rumored that the price would be dropped to $99.99 around the holiday season, and we’ve already seen AT&T and Sprint slash their prices. Verizon today followed suit, it now offers the Moto X for $99.99 with a two year contract, both online and in its retail stores across the country.

    It was also rumored recently that Moto Maker will be opened up for Verizon subscribers this month, but so far no confirmation has been received. If you’ve been holding out on purchasing a Moto X particularly on Verizon, now is the time to make your move. Motorola is going to announce its low-end Moto X variant, the Moto G, on November 13th. It remains to be seen if Verizon is going to carry that device. Seeing as how its expected to be much more affordable than the flagship Moto X, both variants probably won’t be offered for $99 on contract. Its too soon to say for sure right now though.

    Blockbuster’s last U.S. stores to close in January

    Blockbuster’s disc-based movie business is scheduled for termination. The remaining U.S. retail stores are set to close by early next year.

    Parent company Dish Network said the final 300 stores will close by early January. Dish is also shutting down Blockbuster’s DVD-by-mail service in mid-December.

    “This is not an easy decision, yet consumer demand is clearly moving to digital distribution of video entertainment,” said Joseph P. Clayton, Dish’s president and CEO, in a statement.

    Dish will keep using the Blockbuster brand for other video services. Dish satellite TV customers can tack on a Blockbuster @Home subscription, which adds 15 movie channels and streaming to other devices. For non-Dish subscribers, the Blockbuster-on-Demand streaming-video service will remain available through PCs, tablets, phones, Rokus, and other devices.
