Wired on Boucher.

Video-on-demand. I had a chance to play with it while in Boston, and it's quite cool, although the delays are pretty hefty at times. The biggest problem? We're not at the celestial jukebox movie I wanted to watch disappeared the next day before I had a chance to watch it. Still, with a much larger catalog, a virtual NetFlix might do very very well, as it solves the impulse buy problem of not being able to just arrange it with friends and go see a movie or rent one.

CoverBuddy certainly seems like a nice step towards my most-pined-after MP3 player feature: grouping tracks together.
