Entertainment by Amazon?

Online retailer in talks for movie, TV downloads

Amazon.com is holding talks with three Hollywood studios on creating a service to allow consumers to download movies and television programs and copy them onto DVDs.

Amazon reportedly is in advanced negotiations with Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios and Warner Brothers. Such a fee-based service could compete with new video download options available at Apple Computer Inc.'s popular iTunes digital download store. More from USA Today.

Finally...competition...

We're gonna get great competitive prices or we're gonna get price fixing...can't wait to find out which new way the RIAA and MPAA will devise to fleece us suckers off our hard-earned dollars.

The next step in the digital. An almost obvious one considering what Itunes did with serials and video.google.com

the question I always ask with technology is where is it all going to end.

cheers

Hasan: I agree!

Nth Dimension: I can hear them now: "Let the fleecing begin." LOL Isn't competition great? :-)

Dr. Deb and True Blue Guy: It makes me wonder if we'll ever get to the "final frontier" of technology. Somehow, I think not.
