Score One for the Little Guy

Netflix has defeated one of its primary competitors - and by competitor I mean large company that stole their idea almost identically and then delivered inferior service for a slightly cheaper price.

Wal-mart and Netflix have reached an agreement in which Wal-mart DVD rental customers can essentially migrate to Netflix service, and in return Netflix will inform its customers that they can purchase DVDs at Wal-mart.com.

I don't know what caused Wal-mart to cave, but this definitely is a huge win for Netflix - although now a showdown with Blockbuster looms.
