Hugo Miller BlackBerry expects to record about $400 million in restructuring charges, four times the amount it originally projected. Review: Kindle Fire HDX tablet good contender for frequent customers of Amazon services Associated Press Amazons new Kindle Fire HDX tablet resembles Googles Nexus 7 in many ways from its light weight to its sharp display. The similarities end when you turn them on. It is, however, chockfull of B-movies. Some of the newer movies werent exactly hits in the theaters, such as Keanu Reeves Generation Um and Lee Daniels The Paperboy, which preceded his hit The Butler. But there are also many older films, including some classics. The choice of foreign flicks is also healthy and with some quality picks. Documentaries, such as Gasland and Restrepo, are some of the top picks for a collection that also includes public television documentaries, like Ken Burns Prohibition. Under the television section, Hoopla offers plenty of National Geographic and British shows, but not much else. There arent past seasons of many shows, which is one area Netflix thrives in. There are also educational choices, such as preparation videos for high school advanced placement exams. The limit on new movie titles, though, is not something unique to Hoopla. Even Netflix, with its bigger budget, often spars with movies studios on when to release new movies. And its not something unique to streaming either. Blankenship said movie studios would delay sales to libraries of new movies, or only allow rental DVDs, which dont contain special features.

Now available to check out at your local library: Streaming movies, music

Warren) Story Photos Streaming Movies Libraries SEATTLE (AP) – There’s a new source to stream movies and other digital content, and it’s not a tech company with tens of thousands of titles. It’s something more familiar, and might even be just down the street: the public library. Often thought of as stodgy brick-and-mortar havens for bibliophiles, libraries are trying out a new service that allows patrons to check out streaming movies, music, TV shows and audiobooks from anywhere they want. It works similarly to Netflix: Through an app on a tablet or a browser on a personal computer, users can peruse dozens of movies and click on a film to “borrow” it. The content starts streaming, for free. While libraries are already loaning e-books, the move to streaming is part of a larger shift for them to remain relevant in a digital world. Libraries are “meeting patrons where they want to access content,” said Kirk Blankenship, Electronic Resources Librarian for Seattle Public Libraries, which is using the service called Hoopla. The service, from Ohio-based Midwest Tape, LLC, is also being used in Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, Topeka, Kan., and several others towns and cities nationwide. Hoopla launched in full in May with 20 library systems. As of early September, there are about 220,000 people using the app, said Michael Manon, Hoopla’s brand manager. The goal is to reach 100 library systems by year’s end. Libraries have always been a source of audiovisual entertainment.
