I have reviewed several other titles in the series here on The Corner Penthouse.

The Blu-Ray Retro VHS-Style Packaging Trend

Image

A new trend has emerged among physical Blu-ray media releases: retro VHS-style packaging. Blu-ray discs of movies and TV shows from the 1980s, or that take place in the 1980s, are being released in packaging designed to look - and in some cases, feel - like the VHS videocassettes of the era. As a collector of physical media, going all the way back to the original VHS videocassettes of the 1980s and 1990s, I thought it would be fun to take a look at this growing trend.

eBay Punishes Buyer For Leaving Feedback A Seller Didn't Like

Image

This is the first in a series of articles exposing eBay's shady business practices.

I have a love/hate relationship with eBay. I like the virtual yard sale aspect of buying from different sellers in one place, but I hate selling there because eBay does everything and anything to inhibit sales from small-time sellers (who used to be the heart and soul of the site). For starters, they limit us to 50 free listings per month. Why is this still a thing? Doesn't the eBay braintrust realize that if you allow people to list UNLIMITED FOR FREE, then more items will be listed on the site, and thus they have a higher chance of making profits when those items eventually sell?!? They misuse categories for things that aren't about organization, such as charging a higher final value fee (12% instead of 10%) in the Books, Blu-rays/DVDs, and Music categories; capping how much you can charge for shipping in certain categories; or removing certain features from certain categories. They hide listings by rigging the site's search engine. If you search for "Ghostbusters DVD" in "All Categories", the site will show results for the "DVDs & Blu-ray Discs" category, even though the user did a search for listings in ALL categories. That hides any listings that may exist in other categories.
