Do you remember Kozmo, circa 2000?
Maybe you didn’t live in an area where they delivered.
Let me tell you, a wonderful service.
The instant gratification of ice cream at 2am without leaving your apartment (mind you, I didn’t live in Manhattan at the time) was quite something.
All that convenience
mostly disappeared for a while, since these companies did not make any profit.
make it pretty easy to become a shut-in.
You can take it to the next level and make
a more complex setup, but you don’t need to.
HDTV from Netflix, preloaded on the Apple TV.
Subscriptions start at $7.99/month.
I’m not quite sure I understand the stumbling blocks to instantly having the new releases, though it is likely unfinished online distribution agreements, but right now you’ll still have to do Pony Express for the newest ones.
And somehow, this escaped the attention of the nation’s biggest movie deliverer-
The interface doesn’t include a “New Releases” section separate and apart from the newest movies available.
This means that you’ll end up wading through “Romancing the Stone” along with “The Girl Who Played With Fire,” since each of them is newly available on Netflix.
Poor choice, Netflix.
Please fix this!
The Apple TV ($99 for the newest version) gives you access to iTunes on your network so you can play music through your TV or stereo, so there are other great things about it.
Also, if you still want the newest releases, you can
rent them through Apple’s store, and watch them in HD as well.
And again, so easy that even a Caveman can do it.
