... Our descendants will laugh their little holographic heads off when they hear about our ridiculous trips driving back and forth to the video store.
At its California data center, Zediva has set up hundreds of DVD players. Theyâ€™re automated, jukebox-style. Youâ€™re not just renting a movie; youâ€™re actually taking control of the player that contains the movie you want. The DVD is simply sending you the audio and video signals, as if it were connected to your home with a really, really long cable.
This sneaky setup neatly explains how you get those languages, subtitles and directorâ€™s commentaries.
I just love it when a company puts it in the Law's behind by going through loopholes. Hope they can keep this gig going.
On another another note, I love subtitles. And somewhat shocked that in 2011, with all the tech we have, the big boys are having such a difficult time finding a way to stream optional subtitles. Yes, aware Netflix is having SOME success with certain boxes, but not much.
