Netflix Streams Decreasing

Netflix's dumbed-down algorithms

Netflix's big problem, it seems to me, is that it can't afford the content that its subscribers most want to watch. It could try to buy streaming rights to every major Hollywood blockbuster in history — but doing so would cost hundreds of billions of dollars, and could never be recouped with $7.99 monthly fees. What's more, the studios can watch the Netflix share price as easily as anybody else, and when they see it ending 2013 at $360 a share, valuing the company at well over $20 billion, that's their sign to start raising rates sharply during the next round of negotiations. Which in turn helps explain why Netflix is losing so many great movies.

Laptop and Electronics Seizures

How is this legal? How can they seize my laptop or cell phone for any reason?

A federal judge today upheld a President Barack Obama administration policy allowing authorities along the U.S. border to seize and search laptops, smartphones and other electronic devices for any reason.

Alarmingly, the government contends the Fourth-Amendment-Free Zone stretches 100 miles inland from the nation's actual border.

John Siracusa graded Apple's year based on his list from February 2.

You'll have to click through to read his thoughts, but his grades and any short comments I have are below:

Every now and then I feel like I "miss" MacsBug, but really I am just remembering an earlier OS. In no way do I actually miss MacsBug.

Where’s the Best Place for Sports Team Patches

I'd like to buy two sew-on patches each of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Pirates, and Steelers. Ideally they'd be about 4" x 4".

What's the best place to buy them?

Obviously!

Obviously

The beginning of an email. I've gotten a few of these, and absolutely none of them strike me as "obvious."

Perhaps the fact that they're all found in my spam folder is what is supposed to make the sender "obviously" a "professional social media business manager?"

Please.

My Christmas Present to You

Don't watch it if you're aggravated by cursing. The other Nerd3 videos are funny, too, but this may be the funniest.
