      For opening statement. Then I lead it to Vudu....

      Anyway, I think Anthony is a great starter but not a very detail oriented CEO. That's why we had another CEO after him at Replay. Then Replay got bought and went through many layoffs... I would blame Replay bugs on those layoffs in which we lost most of starting engineers.

      And, don't predict what Netflix will do base on Anthony experience. This time he is only the surface person. I was surprised by the direction they are going this time; it's very "not Replay". Or maybe they don't replay same mistake twice?

        And I don't think mbustin meant Netflix has a more secure technology than Vudu does. I think they offer about the same level of security, at least on paper. (how many encrypt bits?) Studios will consider who is more likely to leak the key? (there are more than one cases when company went bankrupt, their security key went out of control) And if the key does leak, who can they seek more damage back from?

        Again, we must often think outside of the technology box.
        What I meant was that Netflix does not make their money selling technology. They make their money renting movies. They, like just about every other company, use technology to accomplish their primary objective. I agree they do also build technology as well for the same purpose. So I don't think they have an edge up on the technology side of things.

        I disagree with the point that studios are more likely to trust them. The current evidence is that they are trusted equally. They have the same size library as Vudu at this point. If they were more trusted, they should have a substantial lead over Vudu in library size. Any claims that they have won that battle are downright wrong and any claim that they will win it are speculative at best.

        One final note on this topic. I don't understand the point of this comparison about what Vudu has and what Netflix will have. They have made no announcement about when or if they will ship anything and we can't know what it really is. It almost seems like this is an attempt to get people to stop buying what is here today based on the promise of something better tomorrow. Am I missing something?

          Better rental deal
          These are from my original post #64, they still stand no matter which movie delivery method Vudu wants to compete with.

          I don't even like Netflix as a comapny. My co-workers went there and play dog eat dog. Our talk is falling back to Netflix repeatly since they are hard to avoid if we want to talk about competition for Vudu. Since they have both e and post serverice delivery...

            Well of course whoever delivers on those things will have an advantage.
