Quickster Dead

Quickster sure lived up to it's name. Here's an update for my post about Netflix changing their DVD services into "Quickster": Quickly Leaving Netflix

Update: Well, that was quick. Netflix has announced that their idea for Quickster is dead - saying that it would cause too much confusion to have DVDs and Streaming Services acting as separate companies. Wow - really - did their focus groups tell them that? You'd think that would be something they would have thought of before thinking up such a stupid idea -- but to their credit Netflix has reversed course. Still, I think this whole situation just illustrates Netflix's desire to get out of the DVD-Rental game.
