diaphoresis: Personally, I avoid Redbox and Netflix. If I wanna watch a movie on DVD, I buy it. If I don't own it, I don't want it.

More power to the people who wanna stream movies though... If you want limited selection and hate to leave the house, it's your life..

This is the worst attempt at being snooty that I've seen in a while.

More power to the people who wanna watch others' movies though... If you want no creative freedom and hate imagination, it's your life..

Personally I avoid being snooty in threads. If it isn't worth my time, I don't want to say it.

More power to those who need to be snooty though... if you want to be one of those hipsters who hates things that other people like, it's your life...

Ed Finnerty: Fools. The future of entertainment is LaserDisc.

The quality is really much higher than VHS, and they're more compact -- I can't see the market not swinging this way:

You think that's bad? hahahaha... My dad worked for AT&T when they bought NCR for like a gazillion dollars in today's dollars...

NCR was acquired September 19, 1991 by AT&T for $7.4 billion and was joined with Teradata Corporation on February 28, 1992. As an AT&T subsidiary, its 1992 year-end headcount was 53,800 employees and contractors.[11] By 1993, the subsidiary produced a year-end $1.287 billion net loss on $7.265 billion in revenue. The net losses continued in 1994 and 1995, losses that required repeated subsidies from the parent company and resulted in a 1995 year-end headcount of 41,100.[11] During these three years, AT&T was the former NCR's largest customer, accounting for over $1.5 billion in revenue.[11]

I'm just amazed they are still in business. It was one of the biggest flops in business history, the failed acquisition by AT&T.
