Apple's deal with major entertainment studios shortens the wait to download movies.
Since we don't watch much TV in my house (no cable in our neck of Virginia), movies are our main source of entertainment. We're always eagerly awaiting the release of a favorite film on DVD so that we can race to the local supermarket or department store to snap up a copy. (For my children, waiting for the latest Harry Potter DVD is like waiting for Christmas.)
But once a DVD is released, that's when things get tricky. Then you have to play "which store has the best deal?" For instance, I purchased a copy of "The Golden Compass" last week. But I had to look in three different stores before I found one with a decent price tag. The difference between the lowest and highest price was $6. That's a fair bit of pocket change. (Heck, you could buy a gallon and a third of gas for $6.)
