Why movie downloads suck

Gizmodo gives 10 reasons why downloading movies sucks. Here's the first one:
1. Pricing: Apple's iTunes store charges $14.99 for a new release and $9.99 for an older movie, and Wal-Mart is expected to come close to matching that except for brand-new releases for which it will charge $19.88. That's comparable to the price of a DVD, but with that you get a disc you can hold in your hand, cover art, a tangible item. Plus, that price is a whole lot more than you'd pay to rent a movie at Blockbuster or have one delivered to your mailbox from Netflix.
