    Here is a user scenario Apple ignored or was forced to ignore it due to the movie industry.

    I decided I wanted to watch a movie on my flight from Detroit to Seattle. So I downloaded the movie completely a couple days before my flight. (I now have 29 days to start watching it)

    So I opened up my laptop on the plane, and went to go watch the movie, but I needed network access to authorize to watch it! I understand they want the rental model to be secure, but how far do they have to go? This killed my experience.

    Wow, that really stinks. Hopefully Apple will change this soon.
