New Platforms

Wired has a story on the distribution of DC Comics via the iPad. It can't be much longer before platforms like this will chip away even more business from movie theaters. I can see a time in the not-too-distant future when kids don't think of 'going to the movies' as much as 'downloading' or 'streaming' one.

If I had a comic book store I'd be worried. Why go to a store to buy a comic book when you can get one (that will never wear out or fade) on your iPad in a few seconds?

If I had a movie theater (chain) I'd be worried, too. DVDs were bad enough, but 'click and watch' is really bad for business.
