[post script Mon morning]

If you're in the mood, this is more the way i feel that Reed's letter should have sounded. What's your feedback on it -- better? worse?

Good find.  I just might have to pass this along.  ;)
Good one!
Priceless!


I pushed the button. Expected a fart sound, but works just as well.

Looks like it's leveled out near the 130 mark, where they've been saying for a long time the fair value should be. Probably pretty precariously perched there tough. Now, if they'll just deliver movies for a while and stop changing and apologizing it all can get back to normal.

I pushed the button, too! Was my smile for the day . . .  :)
The only good that can come out of this is if someone else does buy Quikster (still can't get over that name) and turns it back into a proper DVD rental service again.

. . . with faster turn-around-time on new releases.

Probably not going to happen, I'm sorry to say.

We've been over the economics of new releases countless times here, and it just won't work out to everyone's satisfaction. Spindaddy has posted about this again and again. There's a balance to this issue and the balance will always be tilted towards the economic side of things, not customer satisfaction.

I can post about it again, if anyone needs to hear it again... anyone... anyone. What's that cricket noise?

No crickets that I can hear . . .

 

It couldn't hurt, since there are plenty of new people lurking or posting who may not have read/thought about it previously.

Heh, they can't have been lurking much or they'd have encountered a debate about it.
