Say goodbye to take home DVDs.

I mentioned taking memory sticks to video stores in one of my previous posts . Well it looks like it might be becoming a reality in Australia.

Video Ezy CIO Steve Hogben designed the new video delivery system, which
works by customers going into a store to download movies onto a portable storage
device and then loading these on to a special set-top box at home.

I guess that means it won't be long before you can get a take-home movie from a vending machine at a train station or shopping centre. There is no detail as to how they are going to control the copying of the movie, the file format/quality, or if the movie will expire after a certain time ( to force you to return to the shop to renew it).
