Netflix canceled their Qwikster idea under two premises:
1. Qwikster should be the name of a chocolate milk, and sold to
Nestle. Who is probably also owned by Rupert Murdoch. He owns everything. It’s not an empire, but more like a Kingdom. Ok, same thing. Both may include the intimidation or murder of serfs who speak too freely. I digress. Back to Qwikster.
2. For two additional dollars, yes, eight quarters, nobody wants to receive mail with a DVD inside anymore. AOL 3.0’s outmoded business model? To hell with that. We’re like digital Salmon, we thrive in the stream…
Well, except for the 920 Eisenhower-era people who still read physical newspapers… with fine-print font. Old person + Poor Vision should not equal micro-font. Blogs would be a perfect match for the advanced of age, though the computer could become a new opposition.
I’m @Ironsheek, tune in.
