Reaction to Wal-Mart / Netflix deal
Members over at HackingNetflix are mixed in their opinion of the news that Wal-Mart will ditch its own DVD-by-mail business and use Netflix instead.

I, for one, am glad that Wal-Mart is out of the market. I never thought the idea made sense for them.

I just hope the lack of competition (there are rumors about Blockbuster getting out of the DVD-by-mail business) doesn't slow the innovation that we've seen from Netflix over the past year. They didn't really start adding new features until Wal-Mart and Blockbuster started their services.
