The iTunes rental store now offers weekend specials, just like your local RST Video. Thursday through Monday each week, one movie will rent for $0.99, or $3 less than usual. If we keep heading down this path, the next update of iTunes will bring streaming video of a crushtached geek who snickers at you when you bring You've Got Mail to the checkout. This week's special is The Hours. [MacRumors]
@jetexas: I rented Casino Royale in Montreal, and the same thing happened on my Macbook. Normally, just about everything plays on this system, but fucking Sony DVD's are getting worse. Strangely enough, a copy purchased in the US seems to work just fine on my computer, but it's impossible to rip the bastard for my iPod.
The horrible pattern it seems is that legitimate buyers are getting screwed way too often.
