Millions of 5G Video iPod Owners Demand Movie Rentals sign now

Countless iPod users have been happily downloading Movies to their video-capable iPods, resulting in more than 7 million movie downloads from the iTunes Store. Apple's recent announcement that movies can now be rented from iTunes meant that you could download a favorite film for rent, transfer it to your iPod, and view it on your TV with a cheap cable.

But the fact is that anyone who purchased an iPod before September 2007 -- millions and millions of us -- can't transfer movie rentals to your iPod Classic 5 or 5.5G!

* Have you wasted money at the iTunes store on a rental only to discover it doesn't work on your iPod?

* Do you think it makes sense that your iPod can play purchased movies just fine but not the same movies when they are rented?

* Are you willing to let Apple force you into upgrading your perfectly good video-capable iPod just so you can use the new rental service?

If YOU SPEAK UP, Apple can fix this with just one easy firmware update!Don't let them lock you out of a great new product just because they want you to upgrade their hardware! Let them know that you are angry!

Sign our petition! Express your displeasure with an email to Apple's iTunes PR chief Tom Neumayr at [email protected]! Learn more about this screwjob at

Don't forget, Apple may have lined up Hollywood's finest content providers to support iTunes Movie Rentals, but it can't expect success if millions of its own loyal customers are unable to view the films on their own iPods.

    I have many apple products. I'm not sure if the trend towards screwing the customer is deliberate or just a result of sloppy planning. Either way I am starting to lose respect for Apple.
