netflix vs. vongo: round 7

convenience

vongo takes total command of the fight as soon as the bell rings.

netflix, barely able to lift its hands, is utterly defenseless, unable to ward off any of vongo’s punches, let alone mount a counterattack.

squaring up, landing body-shaking blow after blow, the challenger punishes the champion’s reliance on physical media with vongo’s ability to let users find an item and have it available, instantly…without spending a lot of time fiddling with a web-based queue, visiting the mailbox or the post office, or having to worry about a lost or broken item, or the wrong item being sent…

vongo winds up and delivers a crushing haymaker by helping folks conserve the one thing that everyone has a universal interest in conserving…

time

just as netflix once looked invincible against the entrenched rental competition, using its unique business model and fundamentals to unseat the brick & mortar powerhouses like blockbuster…

those very things now are the tools with which vongo engineers netflix’s de-throning.

finally…

blessedly…

netflix falls.

and doesn’t stir as the referee counts it out.

ding ding ding!!!

ladies & gentlemen…

your winner…by knockout in the 7th round…

and the new champion of the online movie rental world…

vooooonnnngggoooooooo!

Vongo 

and stay tuned for the post-fight analysis…
