The Netflix's spin-off Qwikster is no more when Netflix announced it would split its DVD rentals and streaming movies into two companies, the stock plummeted, consumer shared outrage, and it became the butt of many late night jokes including a spoof on SNL.
Netflix said it would continue to operate one website for both services.
CEO Reed Hastings said in a statement, "Consumers value the simplicity Netflix has always offered and we respect that.
There is a difference between moving quickly, which Netflix has done very well for years, and moving too fast, which is what we did in this case." More than 1 million iPhone 4S models were pre-ordered on Friday, Apple reported, that breaks the first day pre-order record previously held by the iPhone 4 which was 600,000 units, but what likely got those numbers up this time?

Some media giants are vying to be the new owner of Hulu, but it probably won't be Yahoo.
Although Yahoo started the bidding talks by offering 1.9 billion dollars for Hulu, the Wall Street Journal reports

The retailer pulled 100 DC comic titles off the shelves in response to a deal DC made with Amazon to put digital versions of the comics exclusively on the Kindle Fire.
Barnes & Nobles' response-"If we can't have them on our nook, then we won't carry them in our stores.
A bookstore without Superman, talk about Bizarro." Those are your headlines for today.
