AOL Pay-For-Download Service Ends

Unbox logoAOL has decided to give up its pay-for-download service and allow Amazon to sell the movies via its Unbox service. Although AOL’s service has only been around a year, it let everyone know last Friday when it displayed a banner for Unbox after a click on its movie tab. We are certain that Amazon is thrilled that it has one more coup and AOL must be relieved to be following in the footsteps of Google, who discontinued the same service in August to concentrate on its baby, YouTube.

Unboxing the HP Pavilion TX1000

We recently got our hands on the HP Pavilion TX1000 Entertainment Notebook, which in and of itself is a mouthful, and decided we would hook you guys up with another Unboxing gallery. This is one of the biggest galleries we have done, as we have forty-six images of the TX1000 for your vicarious viewing enjoyment.

We just snapped 19 images of our Unboxing Ceremony for the Brother P-Touch PT-18R Rechargeable Labler. Odd as it sounds, this is one of those devices that seems to not have too much to it, but when when you get it in your hands and start exploring, you find that it is actually quite powerful. We have a full PT-18R review over at Gear Live, where you can get all the details, but for now, check out the gallery.

Amazon Opens Unbox Video Download Service

Amazon Unbox Opens

As predicted and speculated, Amazon’s Unbox Video Download Service has gone live, offering full-length movies and TV shows they day after they are premiered. Apple, however, doesnt necessarily have to be worried quite yet. Unbox’s prices are a little on the high end of the spectrum, with the lowest priced films at just under $10 whereas recent releases are nearly $20. Prices on TV shows though match that of iTunes, available for $1.99.

Unsurprisingly, the downloads have a Digital Rights Management (DRM) scheme to them, but Amazon says that the videos are PlaysForSure compatible. Unfortunately, rentals are rather restictive. Upon download, there are a 30-day time limit to begin watching the video and after the video has been opened, it will delete itself after just 24 hours. The files can also only be played using Amazon’s Unbox Video Player, which currently is only Windows-compatible.

As a starting incentive and to celebrate their store opening, Amazon is offering a free video or rental with a $1.99 instant rebate on your first purchase.
