Sometimes new inventions make you stop and think:  why didn't someone think of this sooner?  Travelers departing from MSP now only need a USB flashdrive and a computer to rent an in-flight movie.

Passengers flying out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport have a new way to rent in-flight movies — store them on tiny USB flash drives before takeoff.

The Pioneer Press' Julio Ojeda Zapata reviews the recently launched Digaboo kiosk at MSP, where users bring their own flash drive, download a movie from the kiosk library and they're set to go.

It's an idea whose time has come, when you think about the number of passengers that take along laptops on their trip.
