Blockbuster: A farewell to rentals

This makes me sad. Yes, I realize that despite the lack of ethernet availability in my living room that I can still use Netflix as a mail order service, but I liked Blockbuster because A.) I could browse and B.) it was a lot less hassle then having to mail stuff out and wait for something else to arrive in the mail. It's to bad that Blockbuster didn't buy Netflix when they had the chance. Blockbuster finally had the right idea towards the end (combining physical stores with a mail order program) but it was to little, to late. To many people had already gone over to Netflix. Well now I just have to wait a few more years and bookstores will share their fate, another thing that I'll be sad when I can no longer browse.
