I agree with Gramma on this. The wording is my only sticking point because it created the initial misunderstanding that, like a library, if you have one book you can loan it out, get it back, then loan it out again.

Personally, it never occurred to me that I might (or should) be able to loan it out multiple times at the same time.

But the big market in first-run movie downloads which were created with a cell phone video camera shows us that there is always someone out there with nothing better to do with their time than abuse the system.

I expect the feature would be meaningless to me should I buy one, but the misleading wording is still a withdrawal from the old trust bank.

On the other hand. It is marketing, and it has never been claimed that a marketeer had to swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth as a condition of employment.
