First the Music biz and now the software biz?  This article points out that CompUSA will be introducing a new kiosk delivery system for software.  “It saves shelf space…” and other excuses.  With so many on broadband connections, why isn’t software distribution going the ITunes route?  I know that I can buy some development titles with online delivery, but why not bigger software (e.g. Games and Utilities)?  It’s even environmentally conscience.  I for one *hate* jewel cases and software boxes.  I don’t need/want a printed manual.  I hope this is the beginning of the end for shrinkwrap delivery in general.
