Bye Bye Blockbuster

Bye bye Blockbuster. Hello Netflix.

Last week I joined Netflix because I was about to go ballistic over Blockbuster's late fees (which ironically enough have been canned at all Blockbusters...).

I signed up on Wednesday night and received my first 3 DVD's in the mail on Friday. Amazing! Turns out that Netflix has a shipping location here in Chicago, which speeds the process up and will typically get my DVD's delivered into my mailbox in about a day.

No late fees, unlimited rentals. Great selection. $17.99/month. Not bad.

Oh yeah - Netflix also gives you recommendations based on your rental history and movie ratings. Great concept.
