O/T Somebody took my idea
A couple of months ago, I started thinking about starting a new business. Nobodyís buying cars, the car makerís ainít spending any money so the current one is not very prosperous.
I was going to start a DVD rental business. Youíd come in pick your DVD, Iíd get authorization from your credit card company for the full price of the DVD. When you brought it back, Iíd only charge a rental fee. If you never brought it back, Iíd just charge you for the DVD. No membership card, no giving your life history and a DNA sample.
Last week, I took the granddaughter to McDonalds and there was a big red machine in the corner called Redbox. The machine rents DVDs for $1 + tax a day with nothing but the swipe of your credit card, email address is optional if you want a receipt.
Glad I didnít sink a lot of money into my idea only to have McDonalds beat me to getting to the market.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary and those who don't.
