Wal-Mart and Apple Battle for Turf

It'd be more appropriate to analyze Wal-Mart's movie model (responsible for ~40% of the $17B in annual DVD sales, according to this BW article) versus the category-level shift to digital movie downloads; iTunes is simply today's leading instance, but the challenge, for Wal-Mart, is at the class level.
