Some new confusing statistics were recently released that showed the 2012 London Olympics didn't actually bring in a huge number of tourists.

That's kinda surprising.

The Office for National Statistics said that 3 million people came to Britain during August… 5% fewer than last year!

Filed under: FoodHealth

Okay, so we may have slightly overreacted when we said the world would run really low on bacon soon.

There really won't be a huge shortage with people lined up outside supermarkets just for a chance to get some bacon or anything like that.

Sony: Sorry For Accidentally Capitalizing Off Whitney Houston's Death!!

When Whitney Houston's death prompted an immediate skyrocket effect in album sales, some of Sony's prices were raised.

In the UK, iTunes prices rose like this:

The Ultimate Collection - rose 60% from $7.85 to $12.50
The Greatest Hits - rose 25% from $12.50 to $15.67

Shady, shady!!

We mean, we know fans needed their fix with Whitney hits like It's Not Right But It's Okay (watch above), but was it ethical to rise prices??

The debates spread like wildfire!! So Sony looked into it and guess what!!

…oops! It was all "a mistake" they say!! MmmHmm… inneresting..

A spokesperson commented:

Whitney Houston product was mistakenly mispriced on the U.K. iTunes store on Sunday. When discovered, the the mistake was immediately corrected. We apologize for any offense caused.

Oooh, Sony!! That is just so weird, isn't it!?! Talk about a coincidence… …

So what do U think?? Smart business or Shady business??

movie-ticket-prices-on-the-rise.jpg

Movie tickets just keep getting more and more expensive.

Ticket prices hit an all-time high in 2011, with the average price of admission rising from $7.89 to $7.93.

Wait, what?? Where in this country can we go to a movie for under $8 bucks? Heck, under $12 bucks!

Experts say this isn't just inflation, but is caused by the big changes in the movie industry.

Not only are more

NOOO! Redbox Raises Daily Rental Price From $1 To $1.20

Filed under: Film Flickers

redbox-prices-increaes.jpg

Oh, don't you dare, Redbox!!!

After Netflix screwed us over with their price changes, you were our one and only hope!

Ugh. The daily rate of $1 will be going up at the end of THIS MONTH. Yup, starting October 31, daily DVD rentals will now be $1.20. Way to give us notice, Redbox!!!

The company, which is owned by Coinstar says that "the change is primarily due to the increase in operating expenses."

CEO Paul Davis said:

"Our redbox business alone passed $1B in revenue year to date and became the leading renter of DVDs by staying focused on delivering great value and convenience to our consumers.

This marks the first price increase for a redbox standard definition DVD rental in eight years. The change is primarily due to the increase in operating expenses, including the recent increase in debit card interchange fees as a result of the Durbin Amendment."

Blu-ray discs will remain at $1.50 and video games will stay at $2 a day.

Still not cool though. We are totally disappointed in you, Redbox.

To see the email they sent out to subscribers, look above. So disappointing…
