  • New iPad Boasts Retina Screen, Better Camera, iPhoto Capability [View article]
    My smartphone has an 8 megapixel camera. Just curious why such an image-conscious company like apple wouldn't just put a good camera in the iPad3? It's the only thing keeping me from getting one. I still get the very best pictures with my phone. With so many great image tools, this is a must for the iPad4. Now I have to wait again.

  • Netflix: Reed Hastings' Genius Idea Gone Bad [View article]
    There are already great rental apps on TV's/game platform boxes/Blu-ray Players. Vudu has brand new movies, day and date with the studio releases and is rapidly acquiring great indie films, as well. This is were I watch most of my movies. If I want to buy a physical disk, I go to Amazon. Red Box will go the way of the video store.

  • Can Netflix Avoid Going Under In 2012? [View article]
    They don't even have a Landing Page on FB. They need to hire someone like Scott Monty to turn things around. Many missed opportunities. They'd rather spend a fortune on TV ads than leverage social media advertising and building a new customer base. I'm afraid I have to agree with Rocco, once again. They will go the way of Kodak , who at first glance had a leg up by having one of the first digital cameras, but they never followed through with the obvious path to the future of content creation/distribution.

  • Possible Outcomes For Netflix: Buy Us Or Bust? [View article]
    Netflix is failing for all the reasons I've been talking about for almost two years. The people have spoken. Quikster is gone, before it got up and running, but now the split will go on behind the scenes. If you read the WSJ article carefully, you'll read that DVD operations will move to a different location than the streaming business. Note the streaming business is not moving. This is key and clearly indicates that the company is still planning on selling off the DVD business. Based on the thousands of comments on Facebook calling for the resignation or firing of the CEO Reed Hastings, it looks like even this move is not enough to stem the bleeding. It seems that "the people" are speaking out about corporate America as well as the government. It's a whole new world and now ANONYMOUS is planning on taking down the New York Stock Exchange?

    That's why McDonald's is now trying to be Starbuck's, right?

    The words out - the content creators know that if they "give" their content to Netflix cheap, it will get given away and therefore canibalize their other revenue streams on other platforms that are willing to share quite generously with content creators. Netflix's only chance is to wake up and start paying filmmakers. When independent films can sit next to studio films on platforms like YouTube Rental's Movie Store and Vudu's TV/Broadcast Rental apps, whey should they go cheap, just to say "My films on Netflix". That used to be the holy grail for indie films, but that is in the past.

  • Netflix On Last Legs? It's All But Official [View article]
    While I used to watch a little streaming content, I immediately opted out of the streaming when the price hike was announced. Now that I have Vudu and Blockbuster on my TV, I'm dumping Netflix all together. I'd rather pay and be able to get new content and Vudu gives you three choices of quality so that if you are content to watch standard definition, it's quite reasonable. As filmmaker, I prefer the super HD, but I love that there is a choice. Too bad. I've been a Netflix subscriber for over ten years.

    Ala carte is where it's at. There are plenty of people that just want to rent the two newest DVD's a month and you can do that with VUDU on your TV or Blu-ray player. It's cheaper and you get newer content. I used to love Netflix for it's indie content, but the streaming content just doesn't measure up. I gave up looking and just canceled the streaming. I'm about to cancel the DVD's, too.

  • Starz Ends Renewal Negotiations With Netflix [View article]
    I've been saying this would happen for over a year in my previous posts. Content creators talk to each other now, especially the independents and everyone wants to get paid fairly for their content. Without a decent revenue share on streaming content, content creators have too many other options these days. I just don't see how Netflix is going to be able to pay the going price for content.

  • Netflix on Thin Ice [View article]
    I'm loving VUDU on my big flat panel. All the top movies day and date with studio DVD release. Leave it to Walmart to give us a great option.

  • Does Netflix Really Have Any Competitors? [View article]
    The word is out that they aren't paying enough for content, so they have not choice except to raise subscription prices to acquire more/better content. Let's see who's willing to buy into the price hikes.

    Read what more than 37,000 people had to say about the new pricing. People are outraged and everyone I know is dropping their streaming.

    See, we were right. Netflix almost doubled my bill today and even let me know that I didn't need to do anything, they would just start billing me more. I'm seriously thinking about canceling my account. There are too many other options. We knew they were going to have to up their prices.
