While the news of a major tech company jumping (maybe) into the movie downloading business would be noteworthy on its own, the fact that the company is Amazon - a retailer of frightening ubiquity - gives the report a completely different scope. Instead of just tech savvy kids doing the downloading (like they do now), Amazon offering the service creates the possibility of middle-American grandparents one-clicking their ways to laptops full of movies. While I'm not sure if this is cool or depressing, it's an image of undeniable power, and yet another sign of how much tech has changed the film industry over the past 10-15 years.
