The New (to me) Cool Thing
I finally broke down and bought a Blu Ray player. I have been hearing all the hype about streaming Netflix and, like probably half the U.S. population, I have used Netflix in the past to get DVDs. I did the whole Slingbox thing a long time ago but haven't done much with streaming content since then other than playing with Orb (when it was free and young) on my smartphone. I have to say I am very amazed at what Netflix has done with streaming media. If it were up to me I would never use another DVD again. It is a great service with some content limits right now, but it really is pretty amazing. Obviously there are licensing issues to work out to get more recent content for streaming, but I have read Netflix is working on that. Wonder service and I cannot wait to get it on my Android device. Let's hope that's soon!! I'm tempted to buy a Roku XD for the bedroom, too.
