                        Finance Final Paper: Netflix vs. Blockbuster
                          By Kimberly Wilde, Blair Griffin & Caitlyn Paige

        Hi Guys!
        Below I have created an outline for our final paper, it looks like a lot but this will make it
        easier to insure that we have all the necessary components. Please come to the meeting
        tomorrow at 5:00 with your portions written up so we can just combine everything and dust
        our hands off! I am going to work tonight to polish off the Blockbuster financials; I think we
        can all agree that it is more than a little confusing trying to decipher corporate jargon. I will
        do my best to get that sent out to you both by 8:00pm so you can use it for writing tonight.
