Smart phone Mobile Apps! Just like the accessibility of airplane travel for the masses revolutionalized the travel industry, smart phones will revolutionalize the retail industry.

I’m an avid user of Blockbuster’s DVD-by-mail rental program, Total Access. I chose this service over that of competitor Netflix because I like the option of going into the store and exchanging my mailed DVD for another—free of charge—while the next selection in my queue is being shipped. Plus, the local Blockbuster is only four blocks from my apartment.
