What's the point?

I got to thinking that I should buy a season or two of The Office and Scrubs and that I might even try using the new video store on iTMS. However, with videos you download, you can only play them on the mac or the iPod. You can't burn them to a DVD or open them up in iDVD to create a DVD. So, um, what's the point? Why would I buy something inherently visible that I can only watch on a 2" screen? Sure, I rip my own DVDs to my iPod for those long hours on the plane, but I can also watch those on my big screen. I don't see why I'd ever purchase a video from iTMS. Am I missing something obvious?

I'm happy that Italy won the World Cup. Let me re-phrase that. I'm glad France didn't win. Great head-butt there, Zidane. I should try that the next time a co-worker pisses me off. "Pink, I'm not sure I agree with this design, it....aaaaaaaauuggggghhhh!" That's right. Sha-zam.

If you haven't discovered the Sleuth network (it's something like channel 308 on DirecTV), you're missing out: Rockford Files, Magnum PI, Miami Vice and (yay!!!!) Homicide: Life On the Streets. Homicide is simply an amazing show.
