Walmart strikes back against Amazon's Prime Day (video)

Tech Industry
Walmart wants to ruin Amazon's birthday party. I'm Bridget Carey. This is your CNET Update. [MUSIC] The battle between Walmart and Amazon is heating up. Walmart is fighting back against Amazon's Prime Day. It's a sales holiday it made up for Wednesday to celebrate its 20th birthday. Amazon's advertising July 15th as a day with more sales than Black Friday. But only Prime membership subscribers can score the deals. To counter this Christmas in July, Walmart is also making Wednesday a big online sales day. marking down prices for more than 2,000 items. But for Walmart it's not just one day, the sales online last 90 days. And this week, Walmart also just lowered the minimum you have to spend for free shipping. Now it's $35 instead of $50. Amazon wants to keep you hooked on that computer all day long because it'll throw out new deals every ten minutes. Now if you want to take advantage of all these online deals at Walmart and Amazon, be smart. Don't shop on you main work computer. Use a side tablet or your phone so your boss doesn't have evidence that you've been wasting your day away looking at discount TVs. Speaking of televisions, this one isn't exactly what you would call a door buster deal, but The old lead power LG EG 9600 series has the best picture quality of an TV we've tested. And it just dropped in price. The 65 inch screen model went from nine grand to now seven grand in the US. You can check out the full review on CNET. But if you don't have an ultra cool TV like that, no worries. The cable giant Comcast just came out with a new way to watch TV without needing a TV, and for $15 a month Comcast is offering HBO with a handful of basic broadcast channels to watch live over the Internet. But the catch is that you also have to pay for an Internet service from Comcast. Some sad news. The video game world is mourning the loss of Nintendo president Satoru Iwata. He died at age 55 after battling cancer for more than a year. Iwata was a unique leader for Nintendo, because his background was in programming some of the very games that shaped the company. During the 80's and 80's, he worked at a Nintendo affiliate, making games like Kirby's Dreamland for the Gameboy. And Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64. He also worked on several Pokemon titles. He was named President of Nintendo in 2002. During his leadership he launched Nintendo DS, the successor to the Game Boy, along with the massively successful Wii game system. He also made video news announcements on a series called Nintendo Direct, which he hosted and often had some fun with presenting the news Most recently he announced Nintendo would begin making games for smartphones and tablets. Taking over leadership in the meantime are Senior Managing Directors Jenya Takata and Sheguru Meamoto, the creator of Mario and other iconic games. That's it for this Tech News update.
