Kramer Helps Seinfeld DVD Marketing. Not.
Today, Sony -- which owns the digital distribution rights to "Seinfeld" -- launched a MySpace page to promote the show's Season 7 DVDs, on sale now. In addition to the usual bells and whistles, the page lets you paste some memorable "Seinfeld" video onto your MySpace page.

* Now that we're comfortable with the DVD, it's time to throw it out. But wait, there's more confusion ahead: No, it would be waaay to easy to simply replace the DVD with something better, like the DVD2.

Okay, one item about Black Friday: Here's a great YouTube video from a local news report of a guy crying on camera because the store was sold out of what he wanted. I get the feeling this guy is having a little joke on the cameraman.
