Blockbuster

I was saddened to read that Blockbuster has gone bankrupt and I wonder how many people will lose their jobs as a result. It seemed a terrific idea - being able to download videos on smart phones and tablets without having to pay rental fees. But who could have foreseen this? Was it avoidable? Who can tell what effect other apps will have on the lives of ordinary people?

One of the other reasons they went bankrupt could have something to do with having "Redboxes" everywhere. In my area redbox seems to be a big thing. I do find it sad that things like that are closing brick and mortar stores.

Technology change. One man's meat. . . situation. We bought an XBox One system for our special daughter, but had to trade it back to a 360 because it's too sophisticated. She can't read so can't follow the games. If they discontinue XBox 360 they'll lose a valuable customer because she has interest in many sports and insists on having the latest.

All the movie rental stores in my area went down some years ago, including Blockbuster. I guess people use Netflix and Pay Per View instead. The library is our saving grace. We have an excellent regional library, and are able to take out movies and TV series, besides books, audio books, magazines etc., and can place a hold on what we want to watch next. Surprisingly up-to-date with content, too. And, of course, it's all free. :)

I didn't know Blockbuster was still around. I have netflex and on demand. I haven't rented a physical movie dvd in years.

Technology is inevitable. Resistance is futile.
