    FIRST! Yeah. Try to beat me.

    On Topic: Releases are carefully timed to maximize sales, and so far there really has only been two major points in a movie release: When it comes out in theaters, and when it comes out on DVD. Studios could really take advantage of this new medium to earn a couple extra bucks, especially if they start now when the whole streaming craze is starting.

    That's so weird. I'm working on a project I have for school concerning the sequel to Freakonomics right now, Lol. When I saw the pic for this post I was like, "Isn't that their logo?"

    This will only be reality if Apple allows it to be it. I mean the big movie distributors won't be organized enough to do this.

    Off-topic:
    But you wrote the article! That's cheating!

    I like the idea but I don't think it will catch on. Maybe before DVD release rentals could catch on but I don't think before theatre realease will catch on at all
