CompUSA closing Retail Stores,Macrovision to buy Gemstar

CompUSA will be closing all the remaining 103 Retail Stores, after being sold to an affiliate of restructuring firm Gordon Bros.. According to the press release, they will remain open through the holiday season, whcih could mean bargains for people who are near a store. They pulled out of the LA/OC area earlier, so there are non locally.

Macrovision will buy Gemstar which owns TV Guide as well as the online TV listings that were commonly included with ATI All-in-Wonder graphics cards. And yes, I did use the online listings- it was handy to have. That part may become a pay service as Macrovision sells security tools.
