Scratch That Glitch: Store To Bow Diagnostic Floppy

Blockbuster Video, in an effort to minimize returns of CD-ROMs due to hardware-software incompatibility, has initiated a service to help consumers match store merchandise with their home setup. The service, PC Matchmaker, was developed with TouchStone Software Corp. Beginning Dec. 4, consumers can purchase a floppy diskette containing the software, which inventories and analyzes their home PC configuration. When customers return to Blockbuster with a printout of the results, they will see status reports on each CD-ROM title indicating whether the software will run on their PC.
