28 days. It’s more than an unappreciated flick from the turn of the millennium, it’s also driving the executives at Redbox, Netflix and a smattering of other unorthodox rental companies mad. Movie studios have been hellbent on keeping their new release DVDs and Blu-ray Discs out of instant-rent hands for 28 days after release, noting that dollar-per-night rentals could drastically reduce DVD / BD sales in the all-important launch window. Now, however, it seems that at least a couple of ‘em are willing to bend. Starting this week in four major cities (Atlanta, Miami, Phoenix and San Francisco, for those curious) DVDs for Warner Bros.’ “Inception” and 20th Century Fox’s “Knight and Day” are being slipped into NCR’s Blockbuster Express kiosks. The catch? It’ll be $ 2.99 per night to rent either of them, a nearly threefold increase in the nightly rate that Redbox charges. Additional details on the trial are few and far betwixt, but it’s safe to say that Redbox isn’t any closer to nabbing fresh flicks sooner, and unless you’re down with a 3x price hike, neither are you.

Good thing we’ve come a long way in the last 100 years or so, can you believe that early 21st century humans had to get by with this bot built by Intel named “HERB,” who could barely manage to drop an empty into the recycling bin? Sure, he wasn’t totally worthless, he could sort dishes and put them in the dishwasher (edible flatware wasn’t the norm back then), and managed a vague approximation of speech synthesis (this was before Google blew the lid off the whole artificial voice problem in the 2030s), but it’s hard to call any of these capabilities truly useful to any modern family. Check out the video after the break, and there’s no need to don your 4D glasses: this holovid is flat and scentless.
