Default Did you hear?

Im not sure if its around the world but maybe Australia is a little slower if its not already available in the UK or USA or etc.

But now you can hire movies at home without going out? Just using your credit card and ordering them and downloading them.
It cost around $8. i think(i cant find the link as im lazy right now but it was on the news here)

Of couse you are prob thinking " OMGZ that means i can burn it to cd or whatever and keep watching it for bout nothing"...
Well your wrong and you cant keep the movies, they dont stay on your computer after a sorten amount of time * as i said dont know the right time or price, no link*
They have made it so you cant burn it to a disc, or cannot move it to another computer in any way.

Btw if some Aussie can find the link that would be cool im too lazy right now.

Never mind i did find it

Here it is,

I think its pretty cool, tech is so amazing never doubts to amaze me what is possible its getting scary tho :s

Limewire being illegal... and blockbuster illegally because it's rent unless you buy the movie, same with netflix... you would have to use a dvd back up program and burn it...

Piracy and flaming aren't acceptable anywhere, let alone here.

What geek_gal had was legal, that gmt geezer came out with some rather questionable alternatives.
