But my original point, further clarified (I thought) in my second post on the subject, was: Why would they indicate that iTunes would be the place to purchase an item of this description, when iTunes carries nothing of the type?

Some people might only want the digital content and to spluh with the packaging?

Blizzard's moving more toward digital disty too; three tiers of packaging now: Basic digital download, deluxe digital download, collector's edition retail box.

Yes, and those of us who used to be Pet Collectors in WoW had to keep buying those %#$^$^! retail boxes to get the exclusive Pet code ... the last year or so of my playing WoW, I was actually playing Pokemon inside of WoW. Thank Garrosh I broke *that* habit ... :D

I keep getting the box cause I like the artbook and soundtrack. (In fact, I'm picking up Legacy of the Void after I leave work today.)
And your hiatus is showing; it's not Garrosh anymore :D

The less said about WoWemon the better...people would be very disappointed in me...

I guess some people think of a coffee table book as 'packaging'. I don't.

Apparently it's the 44th Anniversary of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and The Today Show had someone on one degree separated from J!

And that's why I sometimes splurge on CEs. I'm also getting the Avengers Phase 2 box to go next to my Phase 1 box.
Sometimes you just gotta go for the shiny.

I got this link from a friend today:

http://www.cracked.com/personal-experie ... river.html

There are some inaccuracies, though not many. They may be a Canada vs. U.S. thing. Most of the article is bang on. But I am extremely happy to say, although I have heard many of these stories, some live over the air as they happen, very little of it has happened to me.

WoF tonight had a toss-up in the SONG LYRICS category of "WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE"; I think the category should have been FUN AND GAMES.

Thanks, memories and laughs, yes. I like bookkeeping and Yahtzee and used to keep a lot of stats playing game after game. I never did the Australia thing in Risk. Barricading Venezuela and Brazil was more my style. Sorry!? Yes, yes, and guilty. Don't be insulting Battleship. That's a classic.

Slowly making my way through Jessica Jones (4 of ? complete) but one bit really ground my gears...

Walks into a store, Jones asks for the cheapest whiskey they have. Next scene, bottle of Wild Turkey 101 proudly on product placement display.
Wild Turkey 101 isn't even the cheapest Wild Turkey you can get!

Still, better than Supergirl, at least. In the pilot, Johnnie Walker Blue was what someone casually 'helped themselves to a drink' to. Yeah, not on that paycheck, prop department. Did no one have an empty bottle of Black you could dress up? :roll:

There are 13 episodes as I understand the first part of post even though I don't have Netflix. The drinking portion of the post means nothing to me. I'm sure there will be other readers who would be the opposite. :)

As a connoisseur of bottom shelf liquor, I understand your distress.

My family and I have binged through episode 9 in two days. I am enjoying the show immensely EXCEPT that the writers have absolutely no idea how the legal system works. They are literally making stuff up. You would think that they would have just run the scripts past one lawyer to make sure there was some resemblance to reality -- especially considering one of the main characters IS A LAWYER.

Just in case you haven't already, go to Google.com and type in this:

a long time ago in a galaxy far far away

No clue how long it will work for, but its neat.

Yeah, this is very cool, and the music quality is amazing. A shame they have sound turned off as the default. :D

Must be browser specific. It doesn't do that for me in Firefox. Until I started clicking through the results, I had no idea what was supposed to happen. That would be cool, if only...

When I try it all I get are articles on what happens when you do a Google search for "a long time ago in a galaxy far far away".
