    Looks like Steve Jobs was right when he said that Blu-Ray was a 'Bag of Hurt'

    Innnnnteresting.

    Of course, The Jobs would rather we just skip the physical media part altogether. That would be fine by me, as I like my :apple:tv.

    :apple:tv, however, could use a bit of tweaking in its NetFlix code/service, as it's sometimes painful to use (long initial buffer times, dropouts every few minutes). It's not necessarily NetFlix's fault, either, as the NetFlix client built into my TV streams NetFlix consistently, albeit with an inferior UI. YouTube on :apple:tv is also frustratingly slow at times.

    Different clients use different back end servers at NetFlix, so it may still well be entirely NetFlix's issue.

    LG and Sony settle out of court for both patent infringements, saving companies market share and stock prices. Europe conveniently misplaces thousands of imported PS3s. Lots of cops smile innocently.
