• Locate their nearest Blockbuster store — find the nearest store based on a customer’s current location or from another provided address.

MacDailyNews Take: Dinosaur.


  1. If you really listened to customers, why don’t you add support for digital downloads for Mac users?

    Do you think that Windows users are the only ones who like to watch downloadable movies over the internet?

    That’s why I just switched to netflix!

  2. When you say Dinosaur, do you say it like the guy in the animation from Jurassic Park? Because if so, that changes the whole meaning of your take….

  3. If anyone really believed in ‘global warming’, they would insist that all videos were delivered online and that the Copenhagen conference would not exist as it enables 34000 ‘delegates’ to travel there by plane so as to create a gigantic cloud of jet-fuel pollution.

    Why are humans so stupid? Is there an app for that?

    And yes, fsck blickboster.
