With a son in the first few months of his life, the time that my wife and I spent going to the cinema has been sadly curtailed. I don’t like renting DVDs, partly because I hate sitting through adverts for films have no intention of watching, and partly because I hate being told that Piracy Is A Crime. Every. Bloody. Time. A patronising message which is made more irritating by the fact that if I had pirated the damn film I wouldn’t have to watch the message or umpteen adverts.
So, at the risk of sounding like a cheap radio commercial, I was delighted to discover that rentals and purchases from the iTunes store are not only reasonably priced but also free from annoyance. You pay. You watch. You aren’t forced to sit through crap.
