Apparently, these drop points have been around for some time now. They don't appear to be places where customers can drop off movies, but where NetFlix ships to and from an area (probably one without a distribution center) using their own trucks to drop off and pick up mailers from the local Post Office who still handle residential delivery and such. I'm not sure if this is more for speed or economy.
BTW, NetFlix CEO Reed Hastings has a blog now, and guess what his current post is about?http://reedhastings.blogspot.com/200...-2-losers.html
I don't really agree with his post (I think there are more than just two possible outcomes; and although I like the two winners scenario, I just don't see it happening), but I find it interesting that this is one of the first things he chose to blog about considering HDM rentals make up such a tiny part of his business right now.
