A post-bankruptcy Blockbuster will likely be much leaner and a shadow of its former self, which will be a boost to its competitors.

The writing is on the wall for fallen titan Blockbuster, and it apparently spells bankruptcy. The Los Angeles Times, citing “people who have been briefed on the matter” is reporting that Blockbuster will be filing for bankruptcy in the middle of September. BB’s move would likely be a “pre-planned bankruptcy,” which means that the majority—but not all—of its debt holders would give their assent before the filing.

Inside Redbox Pro iPhone AppWe have been slaving over a new edition of our popular “Inside Redbox Pro” iPhone app for awhile now, and in a move that can only be attributed to sleep-deprivation (and just being a little crazy in the first place), we have decided to release it for FREE.

Now, we are not sure how long it will be available for for this low price (is free really a price?), but we would advise that you act quickly if you want to get your copy. As soon as we find the right medication to treat our problem, the price will be going back up! :)

Also, the more people that download it, the longer we are likely to keep it available for free. (You see, we really like recognition, so we would LOVE to see this app get to the Top 25 in the app store.) So, be sure to share this message with your iPhone and iTouch-enabled friends through email, Facebook, Twitter, or however else you want to get the word out (you can use the buttons as the bottom of this post to make it easy).

We appreciate you checking it out (and sharing it), and are always open to your feedback. Feel free to leave a comment if you have any ideas, suggestions or if you run into any (gasp!) bugs. We are here for you!
