I for one think Verizon needs to increase their rates, only 6.6b's in a quarter.
No. Verizon needs to increase its FIOS deployments.

SMA, I always love when you chime in, but let's not make a mountain out of molehill. You know what exactly what I'm saying. Christ, most kids can't or won't even capitalize, much less use a comma or anything else. There are reasons rules exist in language, and they're important.
Ditto. Ugh! Get off my lawn, kids.

I dunno, a real cinephile wouldn't watch those movies on Netflix streaming anyways: the artifacting can be horrendous.

This.

Netflix is great to watch old tv shows and some movies that you don't necessarily want to own. The image is way more clear than when I was a kid and most of our broadcast tv channels wouldn't come in very clear. So, it's good enough.

Anything I really care about.... I buy the Bluray (Or DvD, in the case of an old TV show that has no bluray)

That said, I also wouldn't consider myself a cinephile either. I don't think a real cinephile would even bother with Netflix.

Couldn't disagree more. Unless you have a garbage connection, the picture is better than Dvd's. Not as good as a blu-ray, but neither is cable. This being on a good large screen so you can actually see the difference.

As a movie watcher, I want the original movie untouched, I don't need to be a 'cinephile' to enjoy a film.

And not good as OTA.

Ditto on having untouched original movies. Looking at you, Mr. Lucas. Just include both original and enhanced ones. Sheesh.

Smart watches are one of the dumbest ideas in a long time. A lot of the younger generation don't even wear watches. No reason to, their phone has everything they need.

Surprised that Apple thinks this will fly when it has no chance in hell.
I don't mind smartwatches if they are stand alone (not requiring a smartphone). I still wear a Casio Data Bank calculator watch and don't own a mobile phone.

The thing most companies just can't seem to understand is that a tablet beats out a laptop in almost every way...

You go on to list a lot of fluff and things that don't happen in business. The laptop still has a tactical keyboard and mouse and shit gets done fast with those things.

Not that tabs are bad, but your vision imo was skewed poorly.

And why shouldn't tabs out sell pc's or laptops? We already have those, we want the new thing. There will be a point when those won't have the same demand, because the one we have will have all the power we need and why spend money on one when you don't have to?

Pretty logical stuff.
I still dislike tablets. I can't even type on them and click on links with my fingers. I need my clicky keyboards and mice!
