Forget on-demand, 3 days is good enough

Somebody please tell me I am grossly missing something with this new Blockbuster Direct Access announcement. Because I think it is one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard.

Let me get this straight. I walk into a Blockbuster store to get a movie. They tell me all of the copies of the movie are rented out (or they don’t carry the movie) but they can mail a copy to me which will arrive in 3 days.

In today’s gotta-have-it-now world, Blockbuster just took a gigantic step backwards.
