Thanks for the review
I'm glad C|Net is there to try these things before we do.
You did your job.
I agree.....Unbox is a huge disappointment...
Unbox really was a huge disappointment.....Lets hope Apple comes up with something much better....I feel their pricing is just ridiculous...and no mac...duhh...
(NT) Ouch! In your face Amazon!
(NT) more like a super "SNAP!"
It sounds exactly like movielink
movielink requires a software download,uses the wmv format, runs a process w/ system start-up w/o permission, and has the same rental model.
It is just sad that they handled it like this, this is a really good idea but they screwed it up pretty bad. I somehow doubt that it is really malicious (because it is amazon, i hope i can trust them!) but i myself will not be taking that chance.
Just a wild guess....
I'm guessing that they had too many 'partners' on this deal as it smells like "too many cooks spoil the broth".
(NT) Yep, Amazon is messing up on this one.
I can't try it anyway
I can't try Unbox anyway since none of these companies who have Movie/TV Show download services will let me download from Canada. Thank You Amazon for not letting Canadians download just like everyone else.
how about some screenshots?
hey nice review, could you give us some screenshot love of how the program looks?
Tom... You are right on...
You are right on, I reviewed Unbox over the weekend. It's as bad as you say and worse.
It's DRM hell, can't move files around to other machines (even if they're registered at Amazon), 5.1 doesn't work, rentals are brutal.
