    They're going to sell DRM protected movies for about $15. Keep in mind that these are made for iPods, which have small screens.
    I know I won't be buying any. I hope no one does... it's ridiculous. :eek:

    I'm glad to see you feel the same way about this as I do. This has got to be the biggest load of shit I've ever seen. Sure, a DVD costs more, but you can use your computer and make an AVI from the DVD, then convert that to ipod format o_O. Why would you pay that much for a movie in that small of a resolution? You can go backwards and instead of converting to ipod, convert that file to an AVI perhaps, but because of it being in that resolution originally, it's still going to come out at poor quality. What kind of scheme are they going to think up next?

    Bottom line is, you shouldn't pay that much for a copy of the movie that crappy when you can pay 5 dollars or so extra and have an original copy of the movie, which if you desired, you could convert and put on your ipod(which would be COMPLETELY LEGAL).

    Wal-mart isn't happy.... If they were smart, they'd realize that the $15 downloads won't do well.... but they're worried that they'll lose sales to iTunes movies. WTF... seriously.
