6at4 Business Report: Applie iPad 3, Netflix and Starz, IHOP
February 28, 2012 (WPVI) -- iPad 3 rumors hit critical mass; Netflix and Starz part ways; IHOP is giving away pancakes.
Netflix and Starz part ways
A note for Netflix users: Now thousands of movies and TV series will disappear after today. The streaming video service failed to reach a deal with Starz. The contract ends today. So that means movies like "Toy Story 3" and "Scarface" will be pulled from Netflix's streaming service. Starz and Netflix announced the decision to part ways after a pricing deal fell through in September.
iPad 3 Announcement?
If you've been waiting on the next iPad, it looks like it's here. Apple, of course well known for their events to showcase new products, will hold a big event on March 7 in San Francsico where it's said they will be releasing the ipad 3. Sources tell Bloomberg the new device will sport a high-definition display, run a faster processer and work with speedier wireless networks.
Leap Day Deals
Are you ready for leap day on Wednesday? Businesses never try to miss an opportunity to make some extra bucks so there's lots of leap day deals for you. Staples offering 29 specials, like $10 off a case of copy paper. Zappos is extending its regular 365-day return policy to 4 years so anything you buy tomorrow that you want to return... you have until the next leap year, in 2016, to return! If you have a sweet tooth, Subway restaurants is giving away a free cookie with any purchase at subway restaurants.
IHOP free pancakes
There's a sweet treat for a good cause. IHOP restaurants is giving away a free short stack of pancakes to customers today on National Pancake Day. The IHOP in Port Richmond was packed! In return, customers were asked to donate to the Children's Miracle Network hospitals. IHOP hopes to raise $2.7 million this year.
