This would enable movie rental industry to move from into a competitive advantage position by making available what customers are actually calling for and not what they think is good for the customers.
The new device created a large amount of controversy. Suddenly, people could record and copy television shows and movies and do with the content what they pleased. Film studios and television networks feared the consequences of the consumer-empowering VCRs. After a significant amount of debate and lawsuits about copyright and ethical issues surrounding VCRs, manufacturers and content-providers began to relax as consumers widely purchased the devices and in turn, began renting more videos.i In the end, everyone won as VCRs created a new movie rental market and also benefited consumers. These days, technology does not need to be revolutionary to scare people and cause controversy; it only needs to be evolutionary, in that large technological leaps are not as important.
We decided to make an original poster for the movie Taken 2. We chose this movie because we wanted to bring awareness and reality of international and domestic abduction to parents, college students, and teenagers. Each year, the rate of abductions slightly increases because many people believe that it is impossible for them to be held captive. Taken 2 presented some real life situations that could help keep seizings at a lower rate by teaching people to be cautious of their surroundings. To get a large percentage of our audience to view our movie poster, we will hang them in areas that families, teens, and college students often visit, like boards in community centers, college student centers, and most importantly malls.

But before then the Nintendo Corporation would push video games into their second transformation with the development of the handheld consoles. Nintendo would release the Gameboy and with it a third type of video game console. Although these new portable games were more convenient for gamers, the home console was already too large to be over taken, so portable video games are now created alongside with home consoles. Video games are a deviation of movies that allow the viewer to become a direct contributor to the story as it develops. So because video games are a deviation of movies it would make sense that the basic rules to how a video game should work would be different than the basic rules of movies.
If that prediction is true, it would mean a significant shift in the way many individuals receive entertainment, and the way even a casual fan interacts with others in their community. I argue that instead of eradicating television, making television shows available online will strengthen viewer loyalty. By allowing a potential fan to catch up with a show’s past seasons while continuing the community routine of primetime television, this blend of technology creates a symbiotic relationship between traditional and online viewing. The urge to visualize future television sets as large computer screens, with shows posted directly to a website for consumption at any time (Katz, 2009), is exciting. In fact, a study by the Pew Research Center shows that in 2009, 8% of Americans connected their computer to their television so they could watch online shows on a television screen (Purcell, 2010).
