Movie Burning Kiosks Coming To Retailers

froody ideal for rentals (173 comments)

My biggest complaint with renting DVDs is that they're often so scratched that they skip, or not play at all. Having the rental place reburn a DVD from scratch every 5 rentals (or whatever) would solve that problem nicely and cheaply. (I did some back-of-the-envelope calculations at http://www.casualhacker.net/blog/2006/03/dvd-renta ls/ .) I didn't think the studios would go for it, but maybe they will.
