Comment on "Movies on iTunes"
by Daniel Lyons — Sep 14
I agree with Gerard. If I want to own the movie, then I want to go buy the Criterion Collection DVD and enjoy the special features and the art and everything.

Clearly we are not the market. I also never bought anything from iTunes store for the exact same reason. As Carl pointed out, virtual products should be cheaper than real ones -- because they're not as good: compressed, DRM'd and fragile. They are however tons more convenient. Apparently the market is mostly about convenience.

This is probably why iTunes store has been a hit. It's more convenient than digging up a BitTorrent client and hitting the Pirate Bay, worrying about whether you're getting the right file in the first place.
