Wednesday, September 20 - Do movie downloads click?

Mike Snider of USA TODAY has compiled a chart (seen here) comparing the movie download services offered by Amazon and by Apple. It's a pretty good chart (a factual error I noticed yesterday has already been corrected), but their conclusion is no surprise. "For most users, movie downloads are not ready for prime time," Snider says. "Eventually, digitally distributed home video might supplant packaged media. But for now, the hassles far outweigh the rewards."

Gee, isn't that what I said?

The Geek Code desperately needs updating, but in any case here's mine (as of 2010-02-28):

If you really care about knowing what that all means, you either know the code already, or you can get it decoded for you here.
