Facebook movie? Maybe at the airport

In case you haven’t heard you can now rent and watch movies on Facebook.     “The Dark Knight” is the only film available so far, but more Warner Bros.  flicks will soon follow.

My question is will you watch?  I guess I can see this service coming in handy if I’m say, stuck in the airport,   but otherwise I’m not sure I’m a fan.

Call me old-fashioned but I just can’t “snuggle up” with my sweetie on the couch and hold the laptop.  I’d rather hold his hand.  Renting a movie, for me, means date or family movie night.   Can you imagine you, your other half, two kids and a dog vying for the view on a laptop or iPad?

Of  course I’m sure there is a market for this.  Those who commute by bus or train, kids on a camping trip (don’t laugh because you know they would) or my favorite airport scenario.    So I guess I like the idea,  but probably won’t be hitting the like button anytime soon.
