Many parts of the UK now have sufficient bandwidth to support 4K streaming - about 75% of the country has (or very shortly will have) broadband speeds in excess of 50Mbps: I live in a backwater market town of about 9000 people and I get about 65-70Mbps, which is easily enough for a 4K Netflix stream.   Backhaul will obviously be important, but at least on the face of it, there's a pretty good opportunity for 4K in this country.   Now if only 4K TVs weren't so...
Maybe Apple should buy Netflix?
Sorry... I prefer the old app, for the following reasons:   Looked better on iPhone 6 Plus Less clunky design Less nagging to buy subscriptions for features that are hardly worth the money. $8.99 for a year for what seems to only be a mild effort at filtering and offline reading? Nah... Content, albeit well written some of the time, simply isn't unique enough to be worth paying for. You get income from ads. Leave it at that.   Also, the iPhone 6 Plus is capable...
I wouldn't be surprised if they operate much the same way that Argos does in the UK... A (vast) catalogue operation with high street / strip mall / shopping mall outlets which are, essentially, warehouses with a very limited display section out front. You walk up to the counter or self service till, supply the / punch in the catalogue number of the item you want, check it's in stock and pay... then walk to the counter at the back of the store and wait for your number to be...
For those who don't like it... Don't listen to it!   Big hairy-assed deal!   Jeez, you can't even give stuff away without people whinging...
I've seen some click-bait articles in my time, but this one takes the biscuit.    I can speed read, but this is still 30 seconds of my life that I'm not getting back.   Shame on you, DED.
Given Apple and IBM's relative valuations, I wonder how long before they start to consider either a takeover of IBM or a merger once they've got their heads round Enterprise products and marketing?
 I'd pay good money to see that! Seriously though, as for Tim, it's up to him whether he wants to invite the world into his personal relationships or keep them to himself. It doesn't matter to me at all but then again, I do exactly the same thing - my professional life isn't influenced by my personal life and hence it's of no relevance to anyone whether I'm gay, straight, carnivore, fruitarian, or any other of a myriad ways in which a person may be individually...
 I have mixed heritage of both. Also, you appear to have failed to notice the humour inherent in my post. I even ended it with an emoticon just so you'd know. Also I even managed to qualify the joke with a 'sometimes'. But then you seem to be revelling in the opportunity to take offence and you clearly don't understand the rivalries between Irish and English culture, sometimes friendly, sometimes not, depending on which people you talk to. But I'll save the history lesson,...
 Bono is Irish. Be careful about calling an Irish person British. It can sometimes backfire spectacularly... sometimes onto your nose :p
