Talk About Video on Demand20 Dec, 2005 By: Stephanie Prange
I'm taking a long trip this holiday season, and we're buying our first portable DVD player. In fact, we're buying two. I know it may sound excessive, but if you've ever had to listen to a 7-year-old and a 3-year-old fight over what DVD to watch, you'll understand.
We're going to hook them up in the car so that each child can watch the DVD they want to watch when they want to watch it — no arguments. There are some gadgets that contain two DVD players and screens in one device, but I figure we're better off with two separate units. Suppose they don't sit together on a future plane trip?
My brother and his wife will be bringing at least one other portable DVD player to keep their brood happy on the plane. Together with our laptop, I figure we'll have at least four devices that play DVDs at the condo development in which we'll be staying.
For my part, that amounts to peace on earth.
