We REALLY hope this isn’t going to start a trend of people watching movies while driving.
Today, Netflix has launched free apps for the IPhone and IPod Touch, which allow members to watch instant movies directly on their portable device.
While there have already been ways to watch movies on portable devices, we feel like this new app is going to seriously increase the popularity of portable movie watching. Aside from car accidents, here are some other questions/concerns we have about this:
-Will people start taking way longer whenever they use the bathroom? Are bathroom breaks at work going to go from five minutes to an hour and forty-five minutes?
-Are we ever going to see a person watching a portable movie in a movie theater while another movie plays on the big screen?
-Is it going to become difficult to catch people on their phones because they’ll always be preoccupied watching episodes of 30 Rock?
Will U start watching more movies on your Iphone/Ipod Touch now that Netflix has gone portable?
