So there's a Venn diagram for you. Mac users who bought Speed Racer... on blu-ray.
As you may recall, we got screwed over last fall when Warner Bros's Speed Racer blu-ray packaging promised an iTunes digital copy, but the code ticket on the inside was for Windows only. Mwah wah waaaaaah. I exchanged some fruitless emails with the WB Robot Email Reader, but that ended in a score with me 0, WB $30.
Until late Thursday night, when I noticed my man HotBarlo had left a comment about WB making good on their Epic Fail. I don't know how he found it, but there is now an online form that will turn your blu-ray Speed Racer digital copy code into a token redeemable on iTunes! So no more second-class WMV files! No more fooling around with Windows file conversions and Handbrake! All iTunes, all Apple, all easy. Got that, Google spiders? MAC USERS WITH BLU-RAY SPEED RACER CAN NOW GET FREE DIGITAL COPY VIA ITUNES. ITUNES!
Now, despite my entertaining volley with WB's fictional tech support team, I received no emails from them notifying me about the long overdue change in policy. Where the previous policy was "Let's dick around with paying customers and try to blame the whole thing on Apple."
No, I will not join the sheep and buy "Fred Claus." I'm not jumping into that Venn.
Big thanks, HotBarlo! Thanks to you, Clark could watch Speed Racer in the car today as we did our weekend shopping!
