Wal-Mart's new download service: how many ways it doth suck.


Actually, it's an abstract post-digital conceptual art project *disguised* as a video download service (this page on the site renders like this in Firefox). After a few deep bong hits, the rich layers of overlapping text probably make sense, as would the notion of paying $20 for a 240X320 movie in a DRM-laden Windows Media file that won't play on Zune, PSP, iPod, or computers running Mac or Linux. Link to site, and here are news items: IHT, Hollywood Reporter, Reuters. (thanks, Tom Barger)
