A movie-cinema subscription has kicked off in the US, offering one screening ticket each day for US$50 per month.
We thought all meetups sourced on OKCupid were considered "blind dates," but the company just took it a step further with Crazy Blind Date, a feature that lets you donate paid "Kudos" to help your new "friend" find love. This plus Moviepass's Netflix for movie theaters, Delta's new iPad app, and how much it costs to outsource your job to China.
MoviePass is offering all-you-can-eat movie viewing at theaters. But don't compare the service with Netflix. At $600 a year, a person really has to love movies to make this service pay off.
It's our last show before the three-day weekend, so we're wrapping up with a review of the movie box office, and some new services that'll help with the cost of tickets. We're also exploring the idea of 4D movie theaters, and quizzing Wilson on another episode of Tang that Tune.
On today's show, we're kind of down on Microsoft Office 365 and poor MySpace's future, but we feel a tiny bit positive about the overlapping circles of nerdiness that could be possible with Google's new Plus social networking beta. Also, find out what you love on Google, if you can, and see all the movies you want for $50 a month. Plus: our new favorite word! Philanthrodorks!
