Did anyone else just picture the Kim Jong Il puppet from Team America doing the MOTW?

if the North Koreans win the "bid war" Kim Jong Il promises to liquidate all the assets, but he wants to put all the "Aric Bardwin" movies into his personal stash.

Maybe Hot Head just doesn't want to buy her dinner, or say "please"?

SK Telecom had attempted to enter the US phone market through purchasing Sprint and setting up their own branch. Previously in 2008 they also signed a deal with Sony to deliver movies. Likely they would like BB's core business as well as the stores to push their phones. I think that is good for BB's employees.

Any idea who the other bidders are?

Other than probably Icahan I have only heard one other rumor about a satellite company but don't know which one. Today at 5pm EST was the deadline to submit bids in writing. Only those who have submitted qualified bids by today at 5pm will be permitted to participate in the auction on Monday the 4th. Needless to say, corporate now knows who the potential players are for sure but I imagine it is still anyone's guess who will be the eventual winner of the auction unless one bid substantially stood out from the rest.

South Koreans takes movie watching and video game playing to an entirely different level. But they are also on the cusp of technology and the newest crazes therein. I can't imagine they'd want to invest in taking a step back into the stone-age. Maybe they have lots of money to throw away?
