I hate how Nintendo and Apple always get a free pass around here, but even I think this is just fucking ridiculous. One day somebody is going to file a class action lawsuit on behalf of all citizens against class action lawsuits.
Anyway, I guess it was made offical over the weekend: Day Break is cancelled. They are trying to rush Lost back into the timeslot. But by some fucking miracle, some total genius at ABC decided to air the remaining episodes online. Whoever you are, I salute your obviously superior intellegence. It's not the best quality and unfortunately it is streaming, but at least I will be able to watch it to conclusion.
I still don't understand why you can't order DVDs of whatever you want online. I mean you could just print a cheap label and stick it in a standard DVD container and ship it out. Just set up a DVD burning farm and somehow automate the process. I honestly believe that whoever could figure out how to do that would become a billionaire. I would bay $10, $15, $20 for a professional DVD of ABC's (or whoever's) broadcast of 2005 Notre Dame vs USC. But NOBODY is selling it; the best you can get is somebody's VHS recording. I think selling DVDs of sporting events on demand would be awesome. Maybe also for regular shows like CSI, Lost, etc, or even the late night comedy shows. Basically a store like iTunes, only they ship a high-quality DVD to you. If I had some money I would try to make this happen.
