Loaded: Redbox breaks up with Warner

2:48 /

BlackBerry London details leak, Sony gets a new leader, and Redbox thinks a deal with Warner Bros. is a stinker.

It's Wednesday, February 1st, 2012. I'm Bridget Carey on CNET.com and it's time to get loaded. Let's start with some Hollywood Studio drama. Redbox, the company behind the Red Movie, Rental Vending Machines, has not renewed its deal with Warner Brothers. That's because a few weeks ago, Warner Brothers dropped a bomb on video rental services, like Redbox, Blockbuster, Netflix saying Warner movies would not be available for rent until 56 days after DVD was in stores. Their goal was to increase sales in movies, but Redbox said they wouldn't agree to the deal. Redbox will find another way of getting Warner Brothers movies into this kiosk. They just won't get the movies wholesale directly from Warner Brothers. It seems new design details for Blackberry's upcoming smart phone have been late, called the Blackberry London. This tint touchscreen is designed by Porsche or Porsche, if you wanna sound rich about it. It abandons the traditional keyboard. It's in all black, with rounded edges and it's the first and only Blackberry 10 device. It's supposed to have 1.5 Gigahertz Dual Core Processor, 1 Giga RAM, 15 Gigs of storage and an 8 Megapixel Camera. "Could you too become a subscription video service?" is a question on the minds of YouTube Executives. At the Dive Intermedia Conference, Tuesday, YouTube CEO, Salar Kamangar, said the company is thinking about offering contempt providers, a way to create their own subscription based video channels. One said example would be to pay to get a yoga instructors videos on a subscription channel. But it was just early speculation. YouTube had no such product to announce. Sony is getting a new CEO. The Japanese company announce that after 7 years, Howard Stringer is out and in April, will be replaced by Kazuo Hirai, who led Sony's Playstation gaming business and more recently, oversaw the entire electronics group product lane of games, laptops, TVs and tablets. And over at the Playstation competitor, Xbox Live just got a few new video apps in the live market place. Crackle, a free movie and TV streaming service from Sony and there's also a cinema now. A way to buy or rent movies and television shows. Although, there are a few free video choices. It's all part of Xbox growing mission to become your main entertainment HUB. Are you an app hoarder? Are there apps in your life that goes completely ignored after you download? A survey from The (Pure?) Research Center says most of us are quickly bored with their apps and rarely use them. 60% of us only open 5 or fewer apps a week. The novelty for most of our apps wears off and we eventually delete about 90% of what we download, but when there is an app we use, we use it most of the time, like Facebook, Twitter or (Beth Seen at News?) app. You just can't seem to put down. Those are your headlines for today. I'm Bridget Carey for CNET.com, and you've just been loaded.
