Blockbuster stores meet their end

Dish shutters 300 Blockbuster video stores and ends the DVDs-by-mail program, Amazon pushes bookstores to sell the Kindle, and Google creates a caller ID database for Android.

CNET Update is making it a Netflix night:

In this episode of Update:

- Get nostalgic for the video store as Dish Network closes Blockbuster stores and stops offering DVDs through the mail. (But you still may find a few franchised Blockbuster stores that stay open.)

- See if Amazon can convince small bookshop owners to sell Kindles with a new program called Amazon Source.

- Dream of a day when a tablet can fold like a newspaper, because Samsung is hard at work on the concept .

- Check if Google knows your number, because it can use your photo in its new caller ID feature for Android .
