Blockbuster Time Machine
By David Dorf-Oracle on Nov 07, 2013
In another example of clinging to the core business much too long, DISH announced its closing the remaining 300 Blockbuster stores. This reminds us that we must always be looking over our shoulders for the next big thing. Blockbuster had the opportunity to buy Netflix, but it passed just as Barnes & Noble decided it didn't need to partner with Amazon. Its so tempting to stick with a profitable business instead of taking a risk on a new idea. Nevertheless, Blockbuster is history -- and this video from The Onion seals it.
